Luxuriously warm — but technically adept as well for skiing and snowboarding — the high-end ($700) Atlas Flow boasts the insulating warmth of goose down with the protection of a hard shell jacket.
It has a waterproof outer shell fabric. But 800-fill goose-down “pillows” throughout the interior add extraordinary insulation.
The company says the pillows are separated by a “precise series of venting channels” that help excess heat and moisture to escape. $700, www.hellyhansen.com
