Superior foul weather gear should provide warmth, shelter your skin from precipitation and be breathable to boot. The Eddie Bauer BC MicroTherm Down Jacket 2.0 does just that thanks to a double layered shell that’s waterproof while venting perspiration (and not losing warmth). Additionally, its micro-channel compartments, stuffed with 800-fill premium goose down, minimize weight and Michelin Man bulk — preventing poor body image issues on the slope. Since the jacket’s designed to work well over base- and mid-layers, it also comes with dual chest pockets for your smaller gear, and a generous hood to accommodate a helmet or an abnormally sized cranium.
