The women's Outdoor Research Transcendent Down Parka is a modern winter style jacket that packs in a good amount of warmth and weather resistance.
Outdoor Research says:
The Transcendent series has been a long-time puffy favorite for climbers, backpackers, mountaineers, and everyone else who spends extended time outside. So we took what you loved - and what you asked for - to create the dramatically redesigned Transcendent Collection. Injected with all-natural responsibly sourced down, the new Transcendent uses wider quilting and a rebalanced down fill to allow its insulation to loft better for fast, compressible warmth.
Fresh, modern design lines and colors, trusted lightweight weather resistance, and feature-packed details add even more reasons for adventurers to rely on the Transcendent to excel in their sport. Even if you haven't quite loved your last puffy to death yet, we promise that the new Transcendent will make you reconsider retirement and upgrading to the latest and greatest.
When most styles are updated they usually just change something small, but with the Transcendent range Outdoor Research have pretty much created what looks like a whole new collection. The new quilt patterns are bigger to be more modern while allowing the jacket to loft a little more to increase it's warmth. Another big change is the fabric used. The really soft polyester 20D ripstop fabric is now used for both the shell and the lining to improve it's comfort and durability, while keeping the weight down.
Its well made with the right features, twin handwarmer pockets are lined on the front with micro fleece and the left hand one doubles as a stuffsack. The hood is good with a 'round the face' cinch cord and a 'round the head' cord so that when its properly adjusted it will move as you move your head.
Overall a modern winter style women's jacket that packs in a good amount of warmth and weather resistance.
