Goldwin has been making highly designed and functional sportswear for over 50 years. The brand traces its roots to 1951 in a small knit fabric factory in Japan's Toyama Prefecture. Ever since, the outwear experts have been the leaders in form-meets-function ski and outdoor gear. It has crafted equipment for the Swedish National Ski Team and the British Alpine Ski National Team.

Today, Goldwin has perfected sportswear and increased its use of technology to make gear that can brave the elements. Goldwin integrates the practicality, comfort and usability of outdoor gear with simple and elevated designs that never look out of place — whether out on the mountain or running errands in the city.

If you're in the market for a new winter parka, Goldwin's class-leading selection of tech-heavy winter jackets should be first on your list. Each jacket makes use of technical fabrics like GORE-TEX and unique innovations like Kodenshi Down.

Goldwin’s Winter Down Jackets Offer Industry-Leading Tech to Keep You Warm

Enduring the winter with a sub-par winter jacket is something we wouldn't wish on our worst enemy. They might require copious amounts of layering underneath to stay warm, they might wet out in the slightest drizzle and at their worst, they might offer a less-than-flattering fit.

Whether you spend January and February skiing the backcountry or just commuting into your office, Goldwin offers a winter down jacket that will save you from the shortcomings of lesser quality options. From high loft down jackets to lightweight mid-layers, each jacket has a purpose and was designed to perform.
