Nau Rheostat Jacket

The NAU RHEOSTAT is a rare bird: a fully functional resort ski jacket masquerading as a street-savvy winter puffy. The completely uncluttered exterior—clean lines, no logos, and nearly invisible pockets—belies how technical this waterproof-breathable, 850-fill-down jacket really is. The two-way adjustable hood fits over a helmet, inner pockets stash your goggles and wallet, and the outer fabric is stretchy for athletic skiing. The Rheostat's slim and athletic cut rests snugly against your midlayer or button-down, so there's less dead air to keep warm—and you don't look like an offensive lineman. $415;
