The basic premise of insulation material for clothing is to create an air space between the skin and the cold allowing moisture to wick or evaporate while keeping the warm air close to the body. Humans figured out long ago that there was no point in letting all those fluffy down feathers go to waste after the goose dinner. They started stuffing them into things to keep warm, and we still do to this day. Puffy insulated women’s down jackets and vests are a wonderful and extremely warm alternative to synthetics, providing lightweight natural protection from the cold and the wind. Check out Arcteryx’s Cerium LT Jacket and Cerium Vest, both ideal for adventure travel, skiing, and other cold activities. We may not be able to grow feathers, but this is as close as we can get!
