There’s no other way to put it: REI’s Magma 850 Down Hoodie is a steal. With a responsibly sourced, premium 850-fill down filling, a Pertex ripstop shell, and a DWR finish, it’s incredibly warm and incredibly lightweight. And it’s only $219. That’s significant given that down jackets of similar (and often lower) quality go for as much as $350.
The Magma 850 is the best deal we’ve found on a down jacket, which is why it’s our pick for the best budget down jacket you can buy. Today it’s even cheaper though, thanks to a 40 percent discount, which brings it down to a remarkably low $131. And it’s actually available in a nice little range of colors and sizes. If you need a new down jacket this year, get this one now.
