One minute the wind howls and your breath freezes, and a second later the clouds part and the sun shines. Through the vagaries of spring, Patagonia's Ultralight Down Hoody warms with 800-fill-power 100% Traceable Down (goose down that can be traced back to birds that were never force-fed, never live-plucked) that traps your heat, and an ultralight yet super tough shell fabric that blocks wind and sheds snow with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. The sewn-through construction, tight channel pattern and just the right amount of down increase versatility for use in more moderate temperatures and diverse activities. The slim silhouette (and low-profile hood with single-pull adjustment) maximizes thermal efficiency and suits its ideal uses: belay parka over light layers at crisp crags, minimalist summer alpine bivies and unmatched warmth layered under a shell. Pockets include two zippered handwarmers and one zippered chest. A drawcord hem helps keep in the heat. Stuffsack included.

Pertex Quantum provides half of the weight and twice the strength of most nylon shells, and it protects the lofty warmth inside with reliable water-resistance and complete windproofing. Patagonia's 800-fill down insulation comes from birds that were never force-fed or live-plucked, and it has a higher loft than most down jackets. The Ultralight Down Jacket stows inside its chest pocket for compact storage in your backpack.
