At only $225 retail, it is the second most affordable jacket in the review, and has no problem performing better than some that are nearly twice the cost. Considering it is a super well thought out jacket at a very low cost, it was easy for us to award the Transcendent Hoody our Best Bang for the Buck Award.
Transcendent Down Sweater. Weighing in at 13 oz., you can expect the same great performance without the bulk of a hood for those looking to add this piece to their layering collection. For even less bulk, check out the Transcendent Down Vest, the $149, 9.4 oz. hoodless, sleeveless version of this jacket.
