Columbia stuffed two types of insulation into this jacket – synthetic and down – and sandwiched it between layers of warmth-trapping Omni-Heat material. That combination keeps wearers dry and insulated in what looks to be a light, well-lofted, and highly breathable piece of outerwear. Prices start lower than you might think.
