Sure, it’s hot out, and the last thing on your mind is a high-performance snow jacket. But as we’ve noted before, summer is a great time to score amazing deals on winter gear. Case in point: Mountain Hardwear’s StretchDown Hooded Jacket, currently on sale for $120, 60 percent off its $300 regular price. Boasting 750-fill RDS certified down, permanent water repellency and a motion-freeing stretch-knit fabric, it’s perfect for, well, six months from now. But the price? That’s perfect right this moment.
