This Editors’ Choice-winning puffy shrugs off bad weather—and it’s extra-cheap right now.
“Who says high-tech always has a high price?” our reviewer wrote in 2012, when we gave the Ultralight 850 an Editors’ Choice Snow Award. While it costs less than many comparable jackets, this piece from L.L. Bean is stuffed with high-quality 850-fill DownTek, a technology which coats each individual feather in a water-repellant solution. Seven years later, the updated version comes with a Pertex Quantum nylon shell, adding an extra boost of weather resistance. Buy L.L. Bean Ultralight 850 Down Jacket now starting at $189 (14% off). Bonus: L.L. Bean is offering customers 25% off their order through February 19.
