Light, simple, and super-warm, this hooded down jacket with a windproof and water-resistant shell fabric is pure foul-weather genius. From final fall incursions into the high country, where nasty weather can and often does happen, to backcountry ski tours, snowshoe treks, or fat bike missions into a winter wonderland, you’ll want the Frostline jacket at the top of your pack.  Narrow baffles filled with 700 fill down pack extreme warmth for the weight in a trim, stylish package. And the helmet-compatible hood will make the world seem right again while peeling skins on frozen, wind-punished peaks. Men’s and women’s styles available. MSRP: $200. Mountain-equipment.com //
