Unless you're on an expedition to Denali or dog-sledding across the frozen tundra, an expedition-weight jacket is overkill. After all, the Burton Dorset Men's Down Jacket has all of the features that you'll need for a weekend at Telluride without adding any of the bulk.
The shell was constructed of a ripstop polyester/nylon fabric, and it's insulated with 500 down fill. The body and arms were then given a diamond-pattern, quilted stitch. And although it adds visual interest, more importantly, it keeps the down feathers evenly distributed across the jacket. So, you won't have to worry about the insulation migrating to the bottom. The ripstop shell was treated with a DWR coating (durable water repellent) in order to help water droplets roll right off your back. The jacket also features a hood with a drawcord and two knit cuffs in order to seal out the cold. Two front hand pockets with snap detail will also keep your fingers toasty.
