These top performing garments don’t sacrifice aesthetics, comfort or the technical features users depend on and they work in a variety of outdoor pursuits.

“We’re shifting our approach to offer highly technical performance pieces that work in a variety of situations,” notes Sierra Designs’ Design Director, Martin Flora. “Instead of one specific jacket per sport or activity, our consumers want a reliable piece that looks good, simply works and meets the demands of their lifestyle.”

DriDown Bomber (W)

Designed in a classic bomber silhouette, this feminine and flattering jacket offers technical performance camouflaged as a soft-handed jacket for every day wear.

The exterior fabric is more protective, a thin PU coating in the shell prevents down leaks and provides water and wind protection while a DWR on the surface adds an extra layer of weather protection. The jacket is warm and soft without the bulk and the lightweight stretch woven fabric in a relaxed fit and shorter length allows room for baselayers. Available in classic, timeless colorways. 800 Fill Power Duck DriDown $189
