The Nelson is discontinued. Fear not, our Ski Jacket Review is updated to be as fresh as the powder you're seeking.
Most notably, the Armada Nelson is the least expensive down-insulated jacket in our test; unfortunately, it has been discontinued. If you're in search of a ski jacket that won't break the bank, consider the North Face Vortex Triclimate. Ringing in at $280, the Triclimate wins our Best Buy Award.
As such, it is an incredible value. At just a little over half the price of our Editors' Choice Patagonia Primo Down, the Nelson brings the long-lasting warmth of goose down to a more affordable price point. The fit and finish isn't nearly as nuanced on the Nelson as it is in the more expensive pieces, but for those on more of a budget or who only occasionally ride in real cold conditions, this jacket should be considered by anyone who can hang with the offered color schemes. The tested camouflage definitely makes a youthful statement and the only other option is basic black.
