Winter has officially arrived here in Annapolis.  Yes, we know the solstice isn’t for another month, but when the high temperature for the day is at or below freezing, that is winter for us.  To combat the cold temperatures, we’re breaking out the big guns.  Our pick today is one of the warmest jackets L.L. Bean makes, the Ultralight 850 Down Jacket.

Rated for temperatures as low as -25°, if it’s so cold that this jacket isn’t warm enough for us, we’re just not going outside.  Thanks to L.L .Bean’s DownTek fill, the Ultralight 850 maintains a trim silhouette and is super light while still being extremely warm.  Tapered just a bit at the waist, this jacket works best with a mid-weight layer underneath, but, honestly, unless it’s super cold you probably won’t need much. Available in five different colors, you really can’t go wrong with any of the Ultralight 850 options, but we think Molten Red (shown) is the way to go.
