Gore-Tex Thermium has a blend of 30-percent synthetic and 70-percent goose down, with a 20D Pertex microlight inner lining that also has a DWR finish to repel moisture. A lot of people think that this jacket is over insulated, but when it’s considered a ski jacket it makes sure to make their products to keep you warm. This has all the functions you will ever need with it having a zip-in powder skirt, an internal stretch pocket with a media port. If you’re wearing a helmet the Black Diamond Mission Down Parka comes equipped with a single pull cord hood and has two concealed zippered chest pockets, zippered hand pockets, and two internal drop pockets.

Best for Really Cold Climates: Helly Hansen Longyear Parka features 600-fill power down insulation that’s been responsibly sourced from Allied and protects you from wind, water, snow, and freezing rain. The jacket has integrated many features for keeping the cold out the cold, including a full center zip reinforced with buttons and adjustable Velcro cuffs.

It also includes a waterproof/breathable outer as well as fully sealed seams to prevent the water from coming in and also heat from escaping.
Best for Maneuverability: Mountain Hardwear StretchDown Jacket is great because most puffy coats don’t fit the best and can make high-octane activities like hiking, or biking a bit difficult. As its name implies, Mountain Hardwear’s StretchDown has addressed this issue thanks to its stitch-free construction and a stretchy knit fabric that lets the jacket fit snug and move freely. RDS-certified 750-fill has been treated with Q.Shield, which gives the down fibers permanent water repellency to keep you warm even if the insulation gets wet. The jacket’s Trim helps to maximize heat retention due to its stretch-weld channel construction which helps traps more warmth than standard stitching. It also has great pockets in all the right places. Two internal pockets, two zippered hand pockets as well as a zippered pocket on the left side of the chest can all be found to place your belongings and unlike most jackets, the cuffs are not velcro but made of stretchy material to help keep heat in.
