SmartWool PhD SmartLoft Hooded Jacket - Women's

Product Details

You don't have to be a doctor to see that the SmartWool Women's PhD SmartLoft Hooded Jacket will be there on all your winter adventures whether you're shoveling the driveway, backcountry skiing, or on your annual ice climbing foray in Ouray. Replacing down and synthetic insulation with light and warm wool, this insulating jacket makes an excellent mid-layer thanks to the natural goodness of wool, as well as a trim silhouette and stretch side panels. The DWR-treated nylon fabric makes it equally suited on its own during those cold and clear days on the skin track. Merino wool insulates in a manner similar to down; wool fibers criss-cross, creating a grid-like structure in which air gets trapped. The trapped air prevents body heat from escaping and cold environmental air from entering. A bit of polyester helps with wicking when the trail gets too steep, and the smooth merino jersey on the inside offers luxurious against-the-skin comfort, odor resistance, and breathability.

Price : $239.95

Rain Jacket Checklist

Rubber is for Tires : Don't even think about getting a rubber rain jacket. Why? Read below..
Get a Rain Jacket That Breathes! Unless you enjoy being wet in your own perspiration, get a rain jacket that breathes, letting your sweat escape.
Go Gore-Tex. There are a number of different fabrics that keep rain out but let your sweat escape. But, the best is still Gore-Tex.
Packable? If you plan on taking your rain jacket into the boonies, make sure it's packs down tightly and into a small package. The best ones are those that "fold" into their own pocket.
Three Jackets in One! By getting a good Gore-tex rain jacket that is also packable, you now have a jacket for wet weather, windy weather and cool weather. So congratulations!
