The Best Down Jacket / Wirecutter

Reviewed on Feb 28th, 2024

For over four years, the Montbell Alpine Light Down Jacket (available in women’s and men’s sizes) has been our pick for the best down jacket. This jacket is lightweight but has a high volume of 800-fill-power down, which kept our testers warm. Our testers also appreciated this jacket’s extra luxury features, such as its microfleece-lined hand-warmer pockets and collar, a drawcord hem for an adjustable fit, sturdy YKK zippers, large interior drop pockets, and an included cinch sack. The Alpine jacket is wind resistant and packs down smaller than any of our other picks. And it has a durable water-repellent (DWR) coating, which will help keep you dry even when you’re walking through socked-in, super-wet alpine zones. In 2023, Montbell updated the women’s jacket to add horizontal baffles, which match the men’s, and new colors. It’s just as warm and comfortable as it was before. Unfortunately, this jacket doesn’t come in extended sizes (but we have a pick that does).
