SO soft, so cozy, the only reason I enjoy fall is I get to wear this jacket! Not wind resistant, however, great for running errands, everyday wear. Material holds up excepti…

I just got my Mountain Hardware jacket yesterday and I'm already in love with it! It is such a warm jacket that I'm ready for winter to come right now. It is so soft that I do…

I absolutely love this coat! It's the warmest coat I own at least for the upper body. The wind proof barrier is great and actually keeps you nice and toasty (much better than…

I bought this last year because I was tired of wearing my worn out northface zip up. I knew I would like this product because I have a Patagonia rain jacket that is wonderful!…

My winter sport is the dash from the car to work so I'm out in the cold for as little time as possible. Then we got a puppy who became a big dog. So, here I am having to walk…

I do a lot of extreme things like take my 4 year old outside to jump in mud puddles. I run in the rain to pick her up from preschool. Sometimes I go biking in a light drizzle.…

This jacket is extremely light (think piece of paper) but it is sturdy and definitely holds up to the rain. I have to say the hood does a come a little far forward which can o…

Women's jackets have been keeping women warm since their inception. No lie. Sometimes people don't realize it, but keeping women warm is pretty much what women's jackets were invented for. I'm not going to tell any jokes about other things to keep warm, because I think I might get in trouble. Anyway, Moosejaw carries more different kinds of women's outerwear than you can even imagine. Maybe that's an exaggeration, but still.
Some of the most popular jackets for women are fleece jackets. I'm pretty sure it's because women's fleece jackets are so versatile. You can wear one as a stand-alone jacket on cooler fall or spring days, or you can wear it as a midlayer in super cold conditions. If I were you, I would check out women's fleeces from brands like Patagonia and The North Face.
Also super versatile are women's softshells. Softshell jackets are tops when it comes to blocking wind and resisting moisture. Plus, softshell jackets are stretchy and comfortable, so they're great for activities where it's super important that your movement is not hindered.
While softshell jackets shed small amounts of moisture, if you're caught in a downpour, you're going to want a waterproof jacket. There are actually a whole bunch of different types of women's waterproof jackets to choose from. As far as women's rain jackets go, you'll want to check out the lightweight options like the Marmot PreCip or the Patagonia Rain Shadow. Waterproof women's technical jackets offer superior waterproofiness, without all the bells and whistles that weigh you down. These technical shells are favored among Alpine climbers. I'll let you in on a secret: Arc'teryx waterproof shells are some of the most reliable waterproof technical jackets on the planet. Maybe neighboring planets, too.
Women's down jackets keep you super warm on the coldest of days. Down outerwear insulates like a champ and is super packable and lightweight. In fact, down offers the most warmth compared to weight of any natural or synthetic insulation fiber.
In cold, wet conditions, it's best to go with a jacket that uses synthetic insulation. Synthetic fibers like the PrimaLoft One insulation used in the Patagonia Nano Pull Jacket, trap body heat, but also keep insulating even when wet.
