Lightweight, yet warm, the Heatzone 1000 TurboDown from Columbia is an award-winning jacket that was recognized as one of the Gear of the Show winners in 2015.

In the process of designing its Fall 2015 collection, Columbia’s team was also occupied with developing freestyle ski uniforms for the upcoming Winter Olympics. By meeting with countless athletes and coaches, the brand was able to gain an in-depth understanding of what these professionals are looking for in terms of fabric, fit, style and most of all, performance. This research inspired the brand to relaunch its Titanium outerwear collection, which includes the impressive Heatzone 1000 TurboDown jacket for men and women.

The jacket wraps its wearer in a 900-fill water-resistant goose down and Omni-Heat Thermal Insulation, but it doesn’t stop there. One of the most innovative features of this jacket is its an overlapping seam construction, which eliminates the dead spaces where heat typically escapes.
