When we went in search of a jacket that we could wear well for a good long time, we found the The Down Jacket. It’s as light and layerable as a sweater, and as warm as a coat. It’s a jacket, or maybe a sweater, we can wear warmly, well and long and then we can pass it on. Designed by our pals at Patagonia, from recycled and recyclable poly and traceable 800-fill down. Yes, it is expensive, but on a per-wear basis, it’s the cheapest piece of weather protection and warmth insurance that we own. Own one and pass it on. Two handwarmer pockets. XS(0-2), S(4-6), M(8-10), L(12-14), XL(16).
