Slepian, Maggie

When your down jacket takes up more room in your pack than your sleeping bag, you know it’s time for a new coat. But finding a lightweight, compressible jacket that still keeps you warm is a tall order. One item that fulfills all of my nitpicky requirements is the Incandescent Hoody from Outdoor Research. Outdoor Research is known for sleek designs (read: lightweight) that perform at the highest level. Weighing in at just 14.5 ounces, this jacket has a water-resistant shell, is insulated with 800-fill down, and boasts a tapered hood that doesn’t blow off in the wind. What really sold me were the giant pockets, one of which can be turned inside out to be used as a stuff sack. The jacket has a lifetime guarantee, and accompanies me on every trip from winter camping outings to hikes up blustery peaks. Available at Northern Lights Trading Co. and Timber Trails. $350; outdoorresearch.com.
