How to Choose a Down Jacket

 

A down jacket can act as your insulation layer under a shell or as a delightfully warm and lightweight outer layer in cold weather. The type of down jacket you choose depends on what you're going to use it for. Backcountry skiing, backpacking, or climbing will demand a technical down jacket with an ultralight shell and high-fill down. If you're cruising town in the cold, you'll probably want a sturdier fabric and a longer cut for extra coverage.
