Columbia Flash Forward Long Down Jacket - Women's

Defend yourself against dropping temperatures.

Consider the Columbia Women's Flash Forward Long Down Jacket as a barrier between you and the nasty cold from fall to spring. Lofty down insulation keeps this jacket comfortably light and remarkably warm from head to thigh. The jacket's water-resistant shell sheds rainfall and snow flakes to keep you comfortably dry. An active fit slims the Flash Forward along the waist, while remaining looser around the thighs for mobility.
