Types of outdoor jackets and outdoor coats
Down insulated outdoor jackets provide excellent quality with superior warmth to keep you comfortable in the harshest of conditions when hiking, climbing or mountaineering. Down feather in jackets and coats maintains loft and warmth better over time compared to synthetic, if cared for properly. Down packs and compresses well. If you are wanting to keep extra warm then you want an outdoor jacket with a good down feather fill.
Alternatively, try the synthetic version of outdoor jackets with primaloft or similar insulation. They are easier to maintain than a down jacket and can be just as warm. Synthetic insulated outdoor jackets are easier to wash and dry, retain heat better when damp or wet and are typically more affordable but have a shorter lifespan compared to Down.
Hooded jackets are often more popular where rain or high winds are expected. Most are helmet compatible for those into outdoor sports and adventurous activity and often come with their own stuff-sack for pack-ability.
