When winter's weather freezes the hair off your chest, cancel your waxing appointment and wear the MontBell Men's Alpine Light Down Parka as a mid-layer for your ski sessions. With 800-fill down insulation warming your bones, you stay nice and toasty at the resort all day long. Its Ballistic shell and lining are wind-resistant, and it's durable enough to take out on hiking excursions in late fall and early spring. If the day starts to warm up, you can compress this jacket into its stuff sack, store it in your backpack, and whip it out again when the sun starts to set. The Alpine features an insulated hood that cinches tightly across your head to seal out those blustery winds breezing down your body. Elastic cuffs softly seal out the cold and retain all that wonderful warmth along with the drawcord at the hem. And MontBell lined the hand-warmer pockets with fleece for a cozy feeling that warms up your numb digits on those mountains.
