When the Polar Vortex rips through your town, you’ll be glad you have the awesomely updated Women’s Down Sweater Jacket from Patagonia to fend off frigid temps and arctic blasts. Lightweight and compressible 800-fill down comes from happy geese (never force-fed, never live-plucked) to fill out this form-flattering jacket, and the down’s even traceable if you need proof. Down keeps this jacket lightweight and compressible, making it perfect for everything from wearing under a shell while you ski, to stashing in your hiking pack for spare warmth, to just wearing around town on chilly nights. Recycled polyester ripstop won’t let the day-to-day bumps and snags unravel you or the jacket. The DWR finish repels snow and rain so flakes and droplets simple slide off the jacket’s surface. Horizontal baffles are sewn through to prevent the down from shuffling around. Two zippered hand pockets hold your goods, be it sunscreen and lipbalm, candy and jerky, or a smartphone and credit cards. With a slightly more sleek shape and robust (yet lightweight) fabrics, the revised Down Sweater Jacket protects you from the cold and wind, wherever life takes you.
