You've not felt this safe since you had a security blanket and daily naps were the status quo.
When you're seeking shelter from the full-frontal assault of winter, pull on the Spyder Women's Haven Down Jacket. Plush materials and a cushy down fill might make this waterproof and windproof jacket your go-to when both the weather and your old thermostat get dicey. The silky-smooth downproof taffeta lining lets you slip in and out of this jacket without scratching up your arms like that feral cat did last week, ahem. Black stays basic so you go undetected on winter nights, and all the colors have flash accents to spice up your outerwear without getting gaudy.
Down insulation rocks, with one exception. When down gets wet, it's worse than when your great-aunt Eunice crashed your 21st birthday party. Down keeps you warm by trapping air to create an air-barricade. Cold winter air stays on the outside, and your body heat stays in the inside, the way it should be. Yet, mixing water and feathers creates a soggy mess that cannot trap air, and thus cannot keep you warm. In the Haven, you stay safe from droopy down due to taped critical seams and the Xt.L waterproof and breathable lining. Warm and dry are almost as good as hot dogs and sauerkraut.
The hood comes off, and the microfiber-lined inner collar feels sweet against your chin when the wind starts to howl. A drawcord hem adjustment lets you seal out Mother Nature when she starts to spit snowy venom. Hook-and-loop cuffs adjust to meet your demands, and inner stretch cuffs sport thumbholes to keep the sleeves firmly in place. It's nice to have a warm and snuggly winter jacket to keep you safe and sound throughout the worst of it, be it weather, work, or woeful in-laws.

hi there, could you give a fill weight or...
hi there, could you give a fill weight or a warmth rating for this jacket? i know spyders tend to run a bit heavy overall due to their construction (welding, eg) and this does not bother me at all, but there is little-to-no actual information out there as regards this particular jacket's warmth profile. perhaps you could even compare it to some others in its class (similar weatherproofing, performance features, style) or price-point...thanks!
