5 of the Year’s Best Insulating Jackets Are on Sale Right Now

It’s not mid-winter yet, but we’re already starting to see discounts on some of the season’s best new winter gear.


It’s January; winter is on. If you haven’t made the proper preparations for the cold well, normally we’d say that’s on you. But today you’re getting a pass because we’re not halfway through the season but some of the year’s best new insulating jackets are already on sale at places like Backcountry and REI.

Whether you’re recreating in the mountains or just trying to make it through your work commute without getting frostbite, a down or synthetic jacket is a winter essential. If it’s cold now, count on it getting colder, but don’t think that these deals will still be around when that happens.
