Instead of spending another winter wearing your hip-length down jacket and wondering why you get so cold after just a few minutes spent outside, invest in the Rab Microlight Women's Parka. Whether you're watching your little ones eagerly attack the slalom course every Saturday morning or are looking for a jacket to make your walk to work bearable in the winter months, the Microlight comes with all the warmth you'll need and none of the bulk. 750-fill down certified to RDS standards comes with a Nikwax hydrophobic treatment, so it will stay dry through wet snow showers and continue to keep you warm, and the 750-fill rating makes the jacket easy to pack. The jacket falls to knee length, but Rab wisely cut it to follow a slim, flattering silhouette so you can have the warmth of a longer jacket without feeling like you're walking around in a down comforter.

This brand/designer, RAB, needs to add a couple more inches in the waist. I found this to be true of another RAB coat I ordered and had to return.
