I used to layer up for the bitter cold of New England to the point where I resembled Randy in A Christmas Story, waddling down the street just in time to catch the morning bus. Then I happened upon the Mountain Hardwear Super/DS Stretchdown Hooded Jacket and realized that cold-weather comfort didn’t have to come at the expense of style.

The Stretchdown’s adaptable fabric empowers movement, whether you’re hitting the local peaks or heading into town for a drink, and the 700-fill down traps body heat to supply toasty warmth. Wear it over bases or under a waterproof shell, and never find yourself looking like the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man.
