The quickest way to feel like a toasted marshmallow.
Puffy jackets have a remarkable likeness to toasted marshmallows, which is what you should feel like wrapped up inside of one. Conveniently, Columbia has the perfect puffy option with the PNW NorWester Anorak Hooded Insulated Jacket for Women, designed for keeping you toasty and warm when temperatures dip. Hike deep into the backcountry, and the PNW NorWester Anorak Hooded Insulated Jacket will offer you cozy insulation when things get chilly, thanks to its lofty polyester insulation, backed with Omni-Heat reflective thermal lining. Omni-Heat works to keep you warm by reflecting your body heat back towards you when you hike, trapping warmth inside, and shielding you from icy winds that try to penetrate to your core.
Keeping your core warm is just half of the battle, though, which is why designers at Columbia implement their Storm-Lite DP II Shell. The shell cuts through showers and snowfall, so you can stay dry and carry on with your expedition without concerns. When storms are brewing you can pull your hood up and cinch it down to keep your noggin dry and toasty, and adjust the drawcord hem to keep cold gusts from sneaking their way inside. Since this jacket takes a lot of inspiration from a hoodie, it's only natural that it uses a front zippered pouch-pocket to stash your valuables, and a side easy access pocket so you can always get to your gummy bear stash.

I don't typically give Columbia high marks for being "cool", but this jacket is an exception within their line up. The material is really comfortable, design details and color blocking are great, and the fit is really fantastic. Really loving this and looking forward to giving it more wear during winter.
