What: Outdoor Research Incandescent Hoody
Why I chose it: When I got this jacket, I knew it would keep me warm (and it does—even in windy, blowing snow with double digit negative conditions), but I had no idea that it would get folks talking. People have to touch the fabric and comment on being able to see the feathers inside. It’s a high-functioning conversation starter, keeping me insulated while belaying an ice route or hanging up at the hill.
*Note: The Sonata Ultra Hooded Down Jacket is Outdoor Research’s newest similar jacket if you want a newer model.
