Columbia Men’s Grade Max Hooded Jacket


Warm yet thin jacket

I came across this gem of a jacket in an Amazon Lightning deal, and have found it to be so warm, windproof, and light that I have amazed numerous TSA agents and prison gatehouse screeners by daring them to put it on. This jacket is so warm, most cannot wear it in a regular room for more than 30 seconds without becoming uncomfortably warm. I have worn it during -15F temps (-30 wind chill) when shoveling snow and stayed toasty. The ultimate test was when I bought a similar (OMNI Heat/Wind/Shield) jacket for my wife (perpetually COLD) and she loves it.
