There’s no getting around the fact that it is ridiculously cold outside. All we can do is bundle up and hope for the best, while hopefully spending a limited amount of time outside. Thanks to Columbia, my bundling up just got a lot easier via the Reach the Peak™ Down Jacket ($170), available in five colors. Extremely lightweight, yet warm and fitted, the down jacket includes 700 fill-power down, Omni-Heat® thermal reflective liner to capture and retain body heat, Omni-Shield® repellency fabric to prevent it getting soaked from rain, sleet, snow, the usual culprits. Last but not least, it comes with a small nylon pouch, about the size of a shoe bag, to roll the jacket into, making it even more convenient — and portable! It’s great for travel, especially if you’re lucky enough to be heading to a resort or warmer locale and can just making it lumbar roll size for the plane or your carry-on suitcase.
