Whether you’re a skier, backpacker, or just an all around outdoor fanatic – you know that having versatile jacket is a must for getting through the winter. One of the most dynamic jackets out there today? Black Yak’s Hybrid Jacket.

An update from the brand’s 2016 award winning model, this layer boasts a crazy amount of engineering. The 3D baffling in the jacket is constructed from a water-resistant ripstop Cordura fabric and filled with both traceable goose down and PRIMALOFT. The upper portion of the jacket – around the chest and neck, feature the 750-fill goose down, while the lower part of the jacket has the PRIMALOFT Gold fill. The back of the jacket eschews down altogether and instead utilizes a stretchy, more breathable Polartec Alpha, while the hood uses a Polartec GRID. The variation in insulation technology in different parts of the jacket allow for a more flexible and dynamic jacket that keeps wearers warm without stifling them. But more than just having a unique insulation system, this jacket also features a pair of unique stretch mesh pockets, a molle looping system, and special padding along the shoulders for backpackers. All things said an incredibly innovative insulating layer for serious outdoorsmen.

Purchase: $500
