active travelerWho likes to be wet and cold while in the Great Outdoors? Just loving the look of the Outdry Extreme Down Jacket from Columbia; it’s the first of its kind: breathable and FULLY WATERPROOF! Not to mention, the down inside is 100% responsibly-sourced. If you have a friend or family member who is intent on scaling a mountain or just doesn’t stop, rain or shine, they’ll think of you every time they’re warm. Also available for men.
