A good down jacket is essential to any skiing or climbing kit. The Arc'teryx Thorium AR Hoody is top notch. It is designed with Down Composite Mapping, which puts Coreloft synthetic insulation in high wear areas such as the hood and shoulders. If you're going anywhere notorious for being wet, then this addition is even more beneficial. The face fabric is durable and treated with a DWR water-repellant finish, giving some water resistance. The Thorium AR will act as a great mid layer in particularly cold conditions, and a stand-alone piece during a more temperate period.
