The Alternative to Down

Synthetic insulation can be found in mid-layers, stand-alone jackets, and parkas. Unlike down fill, synthetic insulation will insulate even when wet. It's also less expensive. The type of insulated jacket you choose depends on use. For hanging out on belay or cruising town in the cold all you need is warmth. If you're skiing, backpacking, or climbing, weight and fit become more important.

Insulation
A synthetic-insulated jacket with relatively little insulation makes an excellent choice as a versatile mid-layer when you're moving or your primary layer when you're just hanging out by the campfire. Opt for a jacket with more insulation if you're standing around while belaying an ice climb or you know you'll encounter brutally cold weather.

Waterproof Rating
Most synthetic-insulated jackets use a lightweight or medium-weight nylon shell with a water-resistant DWR coating. However, a puffy with fully waterproof fabric will be worth its weight in gold if you think you'll encounter wet weather.

Fit
How you use your jacket determines which fit is best for you. Choose a slim, athletic, or medium fit if you'll wear your down jacket as an insulating mid-layer, or opt for a loose fit if you plan to layer your down jacket over everything else.

How to Choose Gloves and Mittens

Protect Your Hands from the Weather
How to Choose Gloves & Mittens

From what you wear on your head to what covers your toes, every article of clothing has a particular purpose in the outdoors. Gloves protect your fingers and allow fine motor control while mittens offer extra warmth by allowing your fingers more skin-on-skin contact. Hybrid gloves (also called lobster mittens) offer the warmth of mittens and the dexterity of gloves. Consider the following aspects when shopping for hand protection: weather conditions, insulation, and design or shape.

Conditions:

For cold and wet weather, look for winter handwear with a waterproof coating (DWR) or waterproof shell fabric like Gore-Tex and plenty of insulation. Often, a waterproof breathable shell fabric will help to protect your hands from the warmth-robbing effects of wind.

Insulation:

For cold conditions or cold hands, insulated handwear is the only way to go. Synthetic insulations like PrimaLoft dry quickly and are less affected by moisture than down insulation. Down offers the best warmth-to-weight ratio.

Design:

A gauntlet-style cuff keeps wetness and cold air from creeping up the sleeve of your jacket. This design can feel bulky to some so if you want a sleeker fit look for a glove with a slim cuff that slips under your jacket cuff.
