Helly Hansen took every bit of the technology it had access to, including Primaloft's new Gold Down Blend, and engineered it into this pinnacle-performance ski jacket. The insulation is a seamless blend of goose down and Primaloft Gold synthetic insulation, intertwined. It's as warm as 750 goose down, treated to make it water repellent so it repels water in the wet, maintains up to 95 percent of its warmth, and dries four times faster than standard goose down. Four-way highly breathable, waterproof, and stretchy inside and outside, Helly's H2Flow excels – laser-cut ventilation strips in the front and back body of the jacket mechanically vent the jacket through zipper ports you control for comfort regulation. A zip-away powder skirt, waterproof zips, RECCO Advanced Rescue System, and a detachable helmet-compatible hood complete the package. [$900; hellyhansen.com]
