For decades, American soldiers were warmed by forest-green and flame- orange down-filled parkas. This winter, Penfield revives the classic style with its Landis Military Issue Green Jacket. A hard-wearing nylon shell makes it burly; 265 grams of down fill keep it insulated. While it can dress up over any city wear, this excellent jacket also works when the battlefield is a backyard snowball fight. [$260; penfieldusa.com]
