2. Columbia TurboDown
They call it “down on steroids,” but Columbia’s new proprietary TurboDown is really just 850-fill down sandwiched between a layer of synthetic insulation and two layers of its infrared-reflecting Omni-Heat dots. Still that means it’s ridiculously light, compressible, and warm—warm enough, in fact, that the company did what few gear companies are willing to, and individually called out four competing, top-selling jackets that TurboDown beat in its own testing. The full line will include 14 items, including the pictured Diamond 890 TurboDown hooded jacket ($325).
