Helly Hansen Rivaridge Puffy Jacket

Warm and waterproof, but also bulky and heavy, the Rivaridge Puffy Jacket is an uncompromising jacket for cold-weather downhill skiing (and maybe long, windy, winter walks on the beach). It has all the right bells and whistles to keep a lift riding skier comfortable and connected in both up- and downhill modes, but it's not really practical for backcountry skiing. In Norwegian, “uvær” (unweather) is a general-purpose word for bad weather, and here that usually means blowing rain or snow, sometimes… Full review

Arc'teryx Men's Thorium AR Hoody

Good fit, warm. Jacket is comfortable and warm as outer layer without midlayer to 4-5C. Problem with leakage of feather through inner lining brought to attention of Arc'teryx shortly after purchasing and advised this was normal initially but would disappear with use. Have now worn for three winters and feathers still leaking through inner lining when wearing light wool sweater. Full review

Mountain Hardwear Men's Super/DS StretchDown Hooded Down Jacket

Comfortable lightweight and seems to keep me warm (California). Styling is unique. Stretch fabric is a must have! Fits smaller—I wear small, medium fits me nicely. Lots of favorable reviews out there. I have not used the jacket yet for outdoor activities. Just work and errands because I don’t want to take it off.  :) I have read numerous reviews stating it has great durability and warmth. And it seems to. Read very few negative comments other than the hood size and adjustment (lack of). I am… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Men's StretchDown DS Hooded Jacket

I don't recommend this jacket for hiking or backpacking. Warm jacket, heavy, and bulky without hood cinch. I prefer my winter hiking gear/clothing to have some color, jackets and mid layers to be on the bright side. This jacket stands out and looks good but it is not practical for hiking/camping in the mountains. It is just way too bulky. It is very warm with very deep pockets for your hands and cell phone. I thought about trying it above treeline but with no cinch cord for the hood, it would blow… Full review

Eddie Bauer First Ascent Peak XV Parka

A full featured alpine/expedition parka advertised good to -30° F. At its $249 sale price this parka was a great value from its $499 MSRP.  I bought this parka both for bitter cold alpine skiing and as a "camp parka" when winter camping. The size large fits me well at 190 lbs, 5' 10" tall. MATERIALS: It compares most closely with Patagonia's Fitz Roy alpine parka both in design and down fill quality. the PEAK XV Parka will not pack quite as small as the Fitzroy  and other similar alpine parkas… Full review

Eddie Bauer Men's First Ascent Downlight Hooded Jacket

A light and well made 800 fill down jacket for 3-4 season use. Very packable and good for layering or extending sleeping bag warmth. I bought this 800 fill down "puffy" on a 50% off sale because I needed it for higher altitude three-season camping. Mine is a nice "electric blue" color., the one you see here in my avatar where I'm holding my grandson. I've had mine for six years and it shows no signs of wear from skiing, backpacking, and around-town use. Its down maintains excellent loft, despite… Full review

Rab Batura Jacket

Looking for a durable, seriously warm, water resistant down jacket and weight isn't a deal-breaker? Rab’s Batura II may just fit the bill. Bought the Batura II in XL size (containing nearly 480g fill-weight of down) in the Black colour with Horizon (Red) details for planned autumn/winter sub-polar and mountain expeditions. Down The Batura II uses over 450grams fill-weight (in size Large) of 800 fill-power (by US standards. Equating to approx. 743 fill-power per EU rating) of RDS certified, Fluorocarbon-free,… Full review

Mountain Equipment Men's K7 Jacket

This is a serious winter parka that’s very well-made. With about 3/4 lb. of extremely high quality/high fill power goose down, it’ll keep you warm. After suffering a couple of weeks last winter with many minus 15° to 20°F days, I researched, bought, and evaluated most of the leading down jackets and parkas available. Budget limit was around $500. With few American exceptions, eg: Western Mountaineering and Feathered Friends, I quickly found that most of the best stuff comes from England. Mountain… Full review

Outdoor Research Men's Transcendent Down Jacket

So many features! Highly recommended. So many features! Pockets all over the place and still a great weight. I love the colour and it packs very small. This is the only down jacket I tried where the sleeves can be pushed past my elbows for added temperature regulation. Full review
