2014 Outerwear Outtakes

This is what happens when you mix box wine, Spam, and a day out of the office.

This jacket is essentially your outer layer and midlayer in one. Inside, 800-fill goose down stitched into narrow baffles keep weight and bulk down. Outside, a two-layer 12-denier shell with DWR sheds moisture. The chest-to-hip pockets double as core vents.Weight: women’s, 16.3 oz.; men’s, 19.5 oz.[$299; eddiebauer.com/firstascent]

Our 15 Favorite Jackets

When it comes to jackets, comfort comes down to two words: waterproof and breathable. These are our favorites from softshells to storm day puffies.

Mother bought me this jacket for Christmas and I’ve worn it every ski day since, rain or shine, backcountry or lifts, Utah, Colorado, Montana, Idaho. It kept me dry, blocked the wind, and looked wicked stylish while doing so. It took a lot of abuse this season but I’m pretty confident it will continue to do so for years to come. www.flylowgear.comKevin Luby, Associate Editor
