Interest Check: Outdoors & Ultralight Jackets
more_vert
search
Hey guys,
We want to hear what Outdoors & Ultralight jackets all of you are into. More specifically, what brands, types, and styles.
What type of qualities do you look for in a jacket? ▶ Are there certain materials or designs that make most sense for you? ▶ What companies do you think make the best products?
We’re always looking at posts and polls for suggestions, and we take them into account when we’re looking for products to put on the site. It doesn’t mean we can secure relationships with every brand or company of course, but we do try, and it gives us a better sense of the interests of the community.
We thought the easiest way to round up and talk about what jackets everyone likes is to make a Talk Post so let us know what you think and what suggestions you might have in the discussion. Myself and the buying team will be here to take everything into consideration.
Thanks!

We’ll be posting other Interest Checks for other categories (shoes, tents, canisters, etc.) soon so stay tuned. And feel free to share any polls you’ve created here so we can help more people see them.

Everybody wants a nice down jacket. Warmth to weight ratio just doesn't get better. A good brand to try if you haven't yet would be Cotopaxi, they are up and coming, partner with other companies often, and make some high quality down products.

Out of curiosity, has anyone used, or looked at the Hill City (GAP) ultralight hooded jacket, or their reversible hooded puffer, any of the other primaloft jackets? Price point is pretty decent.

I've got a Patagonia down bubble jacket. It's about 5 years old, been everywhere, done everything, very packable and light. I'd buy another one in a second. If I could add anything, I'd reinforce the shoulders for carrying a pack and add a windproof lining.

I've got the Hilfiger natural down packable-black. I love it. It's so light, you forget you're wearing it, yet it's so warm, you almost never need to zip it up! 90% duck down/10% waterfowl. Comes with little drawstring pouch for packing.

i usually dont see lower than 20s in temps so i just layer a windshell/rainjacket over a hoodie or longsleeve. i primarily look for gore-tex but plenty of good windbreakers dont use it. would love to see a Kuiu partnership or maybe a cool northface collab project. Drawstring at the waist is a plus along with vents in the inner arms.

If you want a helmet compatible hood, check out Oros. They use aerogel in their gear (same stuff used to insulate space suits) and I love mine
