TurboDown by Columbia: The Ski Journal Approved

We all know that down is the ultimate insulation when it comes to weight-to-warmth ratio. But what if someone made it better?

Columbia Sportswear, the brand behind Omni-Heat Reflective and over 75 years of innovation, introduced TurboDown for the 2014/2015 winter. TurboDown takes their legacy one step further. The TurboDown line starts with high-quality down fill, then adds onto its high-insulation and low-weight qualities with Omni-Heat insulation and lines it with Omni-Heat Reflective.

For those not in the know, Omni-Heat is a reflective material that lines the inside of the jacket. It’s similar to what astronauts wear in space. It reflects body heat while retaining breathability, and ultimately reduces your need for bulky layers. In layman’s terms, it keeps you warm, dry and comfortable. And isn’t that what we’re all after?

TurboDown is so warm, it should be illegal. It’s The Ski Journal approved and available at your local ski shop and direct from Columbia.
