Next fall, Black Diamond is releasing its warmest down jacket to date, as well as its most durable. You won’t have to choose between them either because they’re one and the same. The Vision Down Parka is stuffed with 800-fill moisture-resistant down that’s wrapped in a proprietary shell fabric that’s coated in liquid crystal polymer, making it impressively tear-resistant. Furthermore, the jacket has gusseted arms for an increased range of motion in a coat of this size and six pockets.

Who It’s For: Hardwearing adventurers and anyone who hates the cold.
