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.
