Light is good. Light, warm and water-repellent are just that much better, especially when it comes to outerwear. No doubt this fall will bring the kind of weather where you want to be prepared yet mobile and versatile. The new Patagonia Ultralight Down Jacket ($279) will allow you to do just that with its lightweight ripstop nylon and narrow channel pattern, along with the Deluge DWR water-repellent coating. The 800-fill-power goosedown will keep your torso warm without the bulk and the drawcord hem will prevent the warmth from escaping. We love the portability where you can cram this sucker into its own stuff sack and pull it out at a moment’s notice when the weather gets a tad chilly. We think you should pick the orange one, frankly.
