Women’s Down Jacket Reviews
The down jacket has undergone a bit of a renaissance lately. Many manufacturers have expanded their lines to include a range of mid- or sweater-weight products that are sleeker and more fashion forward than ever before. The styles range from traditional jackets to hoodies, anoraks and much more. GearGuide recently had a chance to look at a three top women’s products from some of the best companies in the business:
Down Sweater from Patagonia – Beautifully constructed and available in great colors including Amaranth (a pink and bright blue combination), this lightweight jacket works as both a mid-layer on colder days or top layer in the shoulder season. See full review.
Downlight Hoodie Pullover from Eddie Bauer First Ascent – Eddie Bauer patented the first quilted down jacket in 1936 and the new Ascent line from the company delivers fantastic style and comfort. This anorak-style jacket was an instant with us. See full review.
The Gnar Hoody from Sierra Designs – With a number of performance features, the Gnar demonstrates Sierra Designs’ commitment and understanding of the outdoors. They’ve included thumb holes, expansive pockets and a separate nylon sack for easy pack-ability. Great stuff. See full review.
Each of these jackets uses top-quality 800 fill power down for superior warmth to weight ratios. Each employs top notch materials and construction. They’re water resistant. And every one offers a set of unique features, colors and cut. Read the individual reviews to find out more.
In short, if you’re in the market for a mid-weight down jacket, definitely check these out. No matter which one you choose, you really can’t go wrong.
