As backcountry skiing grows in popularity, so too does the prevalence of these stretchy jackets. These issues aside, the jacket looks the part for both outdoor and urban use, comes in a variety of nice colorways, and given the price, remains popular year after year. The inside of the jacket has a fleece liner that is noticeably soft to the touch, and the outside has a DWR treatment to help with light precipitation.
We love their lightweight Eos for cool weather, but the heavyweight Khumbu Parka is about as warm as it gets. You also get thoughtful touches like PrimaLoft Gold synthetic insulation around the collar, reinforced elbows, and a handy two-way zipper.
The reason the Khumbu Parka is ranked here and not higher is its limited appeal for daily use. At the end of the day, the Firebee AR above has a cleaner look and wider appeal, but the Khumbu Parka clearly wins on warmth and down fill. See the Feathered Friends Khumbu Parka. Warm, looks great, and reasonably priced. Build quality is good but not great. This jacket is stuffed with an impressive Many winter jackets with a fraction of the down cost quite a bit more. Why is this jacket priced so competitively?
Slim fit, particularly around the collar. The fit is a bit snug for a cold-weather layering piece, and particularly in the collar area when trying to add extra warmth like a scarf. It also feels a lot bulkier and heavier than the Gotham above, particularly around the shoulders and arms. But the upside is we found it to offer a step up in warmth on truly frigid days.
Super warm and stylish. At the high end of the winter jacket spectrum is Toronto-based Canada Goose. These jackets are the real deal: Our top pick from Canada Goose is the Langford Parka, which hits a nice sweet spot between Arctic and urban use.
Aside from the awesome warmth, craftsmanship, and looks, our biggest issue with Canada Goose is price. But if you run cold, need the extra insulation, or appreciate the styling, Canada Goose has a valuable corner of the market.
Versatile and a good value. This winter jacket has 8. The tall neck and burly hood do a great job at blocking wind and cold air. And we like the styling, which is performance-oriented Rab is a climbing company but translates better for casual use than a jacket like the Feathered Friends Khumbu Parka above.
One shortcoming of the Endurance Neutrino is that the Pertex Endurance shell is relatively thin. While the fabric does a great job shedding snow and protecting you from the wind, the denier face fabric and denier lining prioritize packability and weight over all-out durability.
A warm and stretchy synthetic jacket at a reasonable price. Not a ton of casual crossover appeal. This synthetic jacket replaced the DAS Parka, which was popular among climbers and other winter adventurers for years. With g HyperDAS insulation, it provides solid warmth and impressive wet weather performance. Whereas down loses its ability to insulate when wet, the Hyper Puff will keep on ticking. Keep in mind that the Patagonia Hyper Puff is a specialty piece. All things considered, casual users and those looking for maximum coziness should stick to down, but the Hyper Puff is a powerhouse performance piece for the right people.
Well built; fit allows room for layering. Low fill power for the price. Similar to Canada Goose, Fjallraven makes good-looking outdoor gear that toes the line between casual and performance at least casual levels of performance.
G is an outlier these days but super durable and does resist moisture surprisingly well you can add beeswax to aid in the process. We do have concerns about its warmth: Keep in mind that this coat runs large and should allow plenty of room for layering, which can be a good thing but impacts sizing.
Warm; excellent materials and build quality. Slightly heavier and more expensive than the Rab Neutrino Endurance. Montane makes premium performance products and the Deep Heat is no exception. First, you get 9. The shell is a high-end Pertex Quantum Pro, which is reasonably tough yet lightweight and weather resistant. And the jacket comes with a host of other handy features for serious adventurers including a helmet-compatible hood, water resistant zippers, and a waterproof dry bag make sure to remove the jacket from the dry bag for long-term storage.
Both use premium fill down but the Montane has a little more of it. The two jackets offer tons of warmth and excellent coverage around the head and face, and both are built for climbing yet have a clean enough look for everyday use.
See the Men's Montane Deep Heat. A waterproof winter parka. Pricey and fit can be a bit roomy. And some people find the hood to be a bit large and the pockets to be small for gloves. For a women's-specific model with a very similar overall design, see Arc'teryx's Patera Parka below. See the Men's Arc'teryx Therme. Super warm and great coverage. Design can be a bit polarizing.
Most importantly, this jacket is super warm with 9. For protection from snow and rain, the jacket has wax and polyurethane coatings that will help moisture bead off. And this parka offers great coverage: To be sure, the design of the Kuhl Arktik Down Parka can be polarizing.
The zippers, buttons, and shoulder panels are meant to stand out, and particularly in the Raven colorway the Carbon is a bit more muted. Tough yet looks good. Not super warm and fit is a bit snug. This burly winter parka uses fill down, which is high for its category, has a super durable denier polyester shell, and reinforced elbows to help avoid wear and tear.
And although the Whitefish is not waterproof, it resists moisture and wind fairly well. It is, however, one of the toughest models around and great for those who plan on putting their jacket through the ringer. See the Men's Outdoor Research Whitefish. A decent value for a winter-worthy piece. Winter jackets are an expensive bunch, but budget-oriented brand Columbia offers some interesting options in this category. However, the Barlow Pass is far from perfect and you get what you pay for here.
In addition, Columbia tends to run a bit big and boxy and the Barlow Pass in no exception. But we do like the feature set, which includes plenty of pockets, a generous hood with a removable faux fur collar, and even some fleece lining on the interior around the back of the neck for added comfort. Synthetic insulation polyester Weight: By far the cheapest winter coat on this list. Heavy, stiff, and could be warmer. How is this jacket so inexpensive? The insulation and shell of the Caterpillar Insulated Parka are straight polyester—no lightweight insulation or modern waterproof fabrics here.
In addition, you get ample storage with four large front pockets and one on the sleeve. Is this jacket for climbing mountains? A little lacking in warmth; slim fit. Starting with design, it has an H2No Performance shell on the outside, along with a removable fill down liner on the inside.
It is constructed out of two layers, both waterproof and breathable, with an extremely warm and cozy inner shell. Spending time in the mountains has never been so comfortable. Naturally, the jacket features some great pocket options, such as the inner media pocket, but it has some other great qualities as well. Those include the soft brushed collar lining, zip-off sturdy storm hood, and PitZips technology for great ventilation. A great jacket for those just starting to ski, as well as professional athletes.
It features a three layer Gore-Tex Pro material, which has some undeniable qualities, such as extreme warmth and durability.
This is a garment that lasts a long time and easily survives any skiing struggles. Not only does this jacket have a great, super fun design, but it also features convenient pockets and an adjustable hem.
It is budget-friendly and offers some amazing features for the price. The inner layer is breathable, stretchy Gore Windstopper X-Fast, which is a truly fascinating material that will protect you from any whims of the weather.
There are hem to armpit zips that make this garment very comfortable and breathable, not to mention that collar that keeps all the moisture away.
A true collaboration between retro chic and comfort has formed this great jacket. Rather, there is a central one that fits a myriad of items. Additionally, it is extremely affordable, which in no way affects its warmth-providing qualities. The body temp trapping Omni-Heat layer ensures extra coziness even in the coldest winter days, while the Omni-Shield barrier is water and stain resistant, making this jacket one resilient trooper.
