December 3, 2019 Briefings By

Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and deals. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at .


There are few things as fun as a day spent out on the slopes, but you’re probably not going to enjoy yourself much if you’re cold, wet or restricted. For the days with serious winter weather, most jackets aren’t going to cut it, but those days are precisely what the Aether Nordic Jacket was built for. With 800-fill goose down, a technical wool front, waterproof stretch 2-layer fabric and a snow skirt for particularly powdery days, you won’t find a better jacket for staying comfortable in heavy winter conditions. The simple and flattering design also makes it an excellent choice for cold days in the city as well, or anywhere you’d find yourself in below-freezing temperatures.
