Did you know that it’s possible to get the warmth of a giant puffy jacket without wandering the streets of Bozeman looking like the Michelin Man? As their warmest synthetic jacket, the Cirro Belay Parka from Brooks Range is a trim jacket built with water-resistant material on the outside and filled with synthetic insulation to keep you warm and dry. An array of stash pockets inside and out and a helmet-compatible hood result in a jacket that is ready for any day on the mountain and every night on the town. A few days inside of this jacket and I’m convinced that bulky layers are a thing of the past. $300; brooks-range.com.
