Just because your skis leave perfectly parallel tracks doesn't mean your jacket has to follow along. The asymmetrical design on the Columbia Women's Parallel Descent Jacket gives this insulated jacket a distinct aesthetic so you're not in lock-step conformity with the masses. Feminine lines flatter, and the thermal lining exploits your own body heat for extra warmth. No matter how you choose to enjoy winter, the features on this jacket will keep snowboarding bunnies and arctic urban explorers alike warm and happy until the first daffodil blooms.
The OmniTech shell, waterproof zippers, and fully taped seams block wetness without creating a portable sauna. While weather stays out, this fabric breathes, meaning excess body heat goes out. Techy textiles plus underarm vents keeps you comfy if you're hoofing across town for the opening night gala or breaking trail for your kids. When polar bears refuse to come out, the OmniHeat thermal reflective microtex keeps you snuggly warm by sending emitted body heat right back at your core. OmniHeat insulation blends recycled polyester with regular polyester so you can be green without having clashing blue lips.
Thumbholes keep the sleeves down whether you're wearing mittens or going bare-handed. The adjustable hem lets you seal cold and snow out, or keep things a little breezy when solar heat reaches your little patch of earth. Snap-back powder skirt and adjustable cuffs work together to lock out powder.
