Staying warm and comfortable throughout the colder seasons can be quite the challenge if your outerwear is not up to the job of defending you against the harsh winter elements; many products claim to offer adequate protection when in reality, they fail in some of the simplest of tasks. Columbia is not that brand, and their collection of jackets, mid layers and clothing take the job of protection seriously and offer nothing short of excellent in everything they do. Their latest feature to take the outerwear world by storm is the superb TurboDown technology, which promises so much more than its rivals.
Used in a collection of jackets and vests, TurboDown is an innovative creation from Columbia which makes use of its existing technology and new developments. Layering their industry leading Omni-Heat Thermal Insulation with down has created a fabric that’s not only warm, but performance enhanced; this is then given additional warmth and protection with the Omni-Heat Reflective lining which uses tiny silver dots to reflect heat back towards the body. The result is the ultimate in both comfort and warmth with the protection that outdoor enthusiasts need, or as Columbia describe it, like a down jacket on steroids but completely legal.
Technology such as TurboDown will attract attention from the name alone, but while it sounds impressive and reads equally as enticing, does it translate as different or better in practise? The answer is quite simply, yes. Very few jackets and brands manage to pack serious levels of heat into a jacket without adding size and weight to the product, but the Columbia TurboDown Jackets are ultimately a lightweight example of how water resistant active wear can be better in every way.
Available at a little over £100, the Columbia TurboDown Jackets are in stock now at Webtogs.com. Get yours in time for winter and enjoy some of the best quality, warmth and comfort available on the market.
