The Holden Nelson Down Insulated Jacket has traditional style with modern features. Critically-taped 20k breathable and waterproof nylon keeps you dry, and responsibly collected traceable down gives ultimate warmth in frigid environments. Articulated sleeves let the jacket move with your body for free motion, and adjustable cuffs, hem and hood help you perfect the fit. A powder skirt and super soft wrist gaiters keep the snow out, and underarm vents let you quickly cool off when you're hiking hard.

Down - Down is the lightest and warmest option when it comes to outerwear insulation, the only drawbacks with down is it doesn't perform well in wet conditions and it's more expensive. Synthetics will dry faster than down and are easier to clean, but can't beat down when it comes to performing in very cold and dry weather.
Synthetic insulation is measured in grams, so a jacket with a 80g rating simply means that a 1 meter by 1 meter piece of that particular jacket's insulation weighs 80 grams. The higher the rating, the warmer the jacket.
A fill power rating measures the number of cubic inches that one ounce of that particular down will occupy, so a jacket with a 800 fill power rating will be warmer than a jacket with a fill power rating of 500.
Critically Taped - On outerwear with critically taped seams you only have taping at the key points where potential leakage can occur. This is acceptable, or even advantageous if you live in a dry climate, if you're more concerned with breathability than dealing with wet weather then outerwear featuring critically taped seams is the way to go.
Recycled Cord Adjusters - All Holden cord adjusters are made with recycled plastic.
Ships in Biodegradable Bag - Holden is all about eco-friendly processes, and that's why they ship their outerwear in a biodegradable bag.
Solvent Free DWR and Laminates - Solvent free laminates are treated with eco-friendly PFOA/PFOS free DWR. The process reduces all chemicals use in the traditional process and is safer for both the environment and the engineers and technicians.
YKK® AquaGuard® Waterproof Zippers - YKK® is synonymous with quality zippers, and these are designed to keep moisture out by covering the zipper coils with a polyurethane laminated tape.
