For the best snow of the winter.
Everyone knows that the best snow happens when the temperatures drop well into the uncomfortably cold range. The North Face Gatebreak Down Jacket is your ticket to the white room this season. The natural insulating qualities of goose down are legendary, and this lightweight, ultra-packable jacket lives up to that legend.
The Gatebreak jacket features a soft, breathable polyester shell with a durable water repellant (DWR) coating. Insulation duties are taken care of by lightweight, compressible 550-fill down insulation. The jacket features a fixed, adjustable hood, two zippered hand pockets, an internal media pocket, and a wrist
accessory pocket with an included goggle wipe, and an internal goggle pocket to protect your eyewear. There's even an adjustable snap-down powder skirt with gripper elastic and an adjustable hem.

This jacket was a great buy. I picked one up on sale about 1.5 years ago in glo green. Great addition to my lineup for those cold mornings when I am getting started and especially if I may be outside but not necessarily too active. The 550 is a great level of insulation. I do wish there was one or two more pockets on the inside of the chest for a few more small personal items. Still haven't taken it skiing yet but feel confident it would keep me warm on the coldest of days (no pit zips to dump heat tho). I went with a large (I am 5'10" and 190) and I have plenty of room for layering if desired.
