Why Buy Down?

A down jacket is one type of insulated winter jacket. But what is down? It's soft under-feathers that come from ducks and geese. These feathers keep the birds warm and are underneath the outer feathers that help resist water. You can also opt for a synthetic down lining, which is made from replicated feathers, not the real ones from birds.

Down jackets work this way: the feathers create little pockets of air within the lining that trap and keep heat better.

Both down and synthetic down have their own unique advantages and disadvantages.

A down ski jacket will be warmer than a synthetic down jacket. They will also be more lightweight. On the flipside, a down jacket is more expensive than its synthetic cousin. This type will also not dry out as quickly as a synthetic down jacket if the inside lining gets wet.

A synthetic down jacket has most of the same benefits as a down jacket. It will be heavier than a down jacket, though. The main reason that skiers and snowboarders go for a synthetic down jacket over a regular down jacket is the price difference. If you get most of the same benefits, why pay more?

Whichever type of down jacket you choose, you're sure to pick something that will make a big difference while you're out on the slopes.
