General’s Down Hoody by Flylow is a lightweight down jacket made to keep you warm no matter what the weather’s doing. The jacket’s polyester shell repels water effectively, but the 800-fill DownTek goose down interior is also treated to handle liquids so that the coat retains its loft even in a squall.
Designed for skiing, the 15-ounce jacket makes an excellent mid layer for frigid lift rides, and you can vent excess heat on your way back downhill by opening the 6-inch pit zips. The jacket’s semi-slim fit makes it the perfect piece for mountain climbing and camping above the treeline. The four zippered pockets (two internal, two external) keep smartphones, snacks, and other necessities safe, and the hood can be adjusted to fit over a helmet or cinch down on a bare head. When the weather warms up, the jacket can be stuffed into its own pocket, taking up the same amount of closet space as a softball. [$250; flylowgear.com]
