The Coldsmith Micropuff Hoody is both good looking—thanks to diamond-patterned baffling on the chest and sleeves—and utilitarian. With 60 grams of Spaceloft micropuff insulation stuffed in a polyester ripstop shell that’s been coated with Durable Water Repellent, you’ll wear this jacket all fall, then layer it under your shell come winter. It’s lighter and more packable than down—but just as warm—and has six-inch pit zips to prevent you from overheating. Plus, the Coldsmith is wind and water resistant, meaning it’ll weather the storm better than your run-of-the-mill down coat. And like the name implies, it’s got a hood—one that actually goes over your helmet.
