Some days you need a jacket to stay warm, other days you need to be warm and dry. This lightweight 3-in-1 parka does either and both. It's the right choice for chilly fall days, through the depths of winters and out the other side into spring showers. The down liner is the heart of its versatile system. Snap it to the waterproof-breathable shell to create a storm-proof parka. Wear it on its own, and the durable water repellant finish ensures you won’t be bothered by a little rain. Leave the down liner in the closet when you only need a shell jacket for protection from drizzle to full-on downpours.
- Compatible and interchangeable with other jackets in the Transference series.
- Insulated with 650 fill-power duck down that is Responsible Down Standard certified.
- 2-layer waterproof breathable with a DWR finish protects you from the rain.
- 3-piece, adjustable hood has a short brim helping to keep the rain off your face.
- Outer jacket has a gathered waistline and perfectly placed darts provide a flattering silhouette.

Fabric waterproof rating
The standard test for waterproof fabrics uses a standing column filled with water. The figures given are the water column height. A rating of 3,500mm or higher can be considered waterproof. The higher the rating, the more durable the waterproof fabric will be over time.
Fabric active breathability
The rate at which a waterproof breathable fabric expels moisture when the inner surface is moist from perspiration. Values under 8,000g/m2/24h provide low performance, 20,000g/m2/24h provide moderate performance and values over 30,000g/m2/24h provide high performance.
A windproof garment does not allow any air to permeate the fabric. A garment with windproof panels has panels of fabric that are totally windproof, but the rest of the garment may not be windproof. A wind-resistant garment resists some wind, but not as much as a garment that is windproof.
Durable water repellency
Usually referred to as DWR. A treatment made to fabrics that causes water to bead and run off instead of soaking through.
