Quick Review: Columbia Sportswear Turbodown Jacket

Columbia Sportswear's Turbodown jacket will keep you toasty, even during an icy midwest winter—and it looks good too.

Taking more than three comfortable steps has been hard to do in the single-digit temperatures of Cleveland this winter. I'm thankful for my Columbia Women's Platinum 860 Turbodown jacket, because its Omni-Heat synthetic insulation and goose down has made braving the frigid temperatures manageable. If it's snowing, I know the moisture won't interfere with my plans, because the water-resistant shell fabric maintains its ultimate lightweight warmth and heat retention, even when wet.

I was nervous because I hadn't tried the jacket on before ordering, but it fit true to size. It has a flattering shape, which can be hard to find in a down jacket, and you can dress it up or down.

I recommend the Columbia Turbodown jacket to anyone who wants to stay dry and warm and still look attractive. Head to Columbia and find your favorite color.
