The Winter Blur has all the creature comforts—pit zips, removable hood, and powder skirt—you expect in a full-featured ski jacket. It also has two you don’t. First, Columbia wrapped the heavy synthetic insulation in a four-way-stretch fabric, allowing for an athletic cut and an uninhibited feel that’s rare in a jacket this warm. Second, the interior of the Blur is lined with aluminum microdots that reflect heat back to the body. Basically, it’s a wearable, breathable space blanket, and it makes the jacket noticeably warmer.
