Many rain jackets are designed as shells and provide little in the form of warmth. This jacket is for folks who know they will be in wet and cold situations. The shell is stitch-fee and protects 600-fill DriDown. The jacket blocks wind, but allows moisture from the inside to escape. It weighs 19 ounces, will run $299 and be available Fall 2014. www.sierradesigns.com
