    Down provides incredible warmth by trapping air, creating a barrier of insulation between you and the outside. Natural goose or duck down is the warmest option, but when exposed to moisture it becomes heavy and can’t keep you warm as well as synthetic down. A down vest keeps your core warm while leaving your arms free for additional mobility. Baffles are the horizontal pockets that hold down, and larger baffles give down more space to loft, or capture air. Down vests have shells typically made of nylon or polyester and may be water resistant. Make sure the jacket you choose has enough pockets for all of your valuables.
