When the pioneers were battening down the hatches for another long winter on the prairie, they were probably dreaming of a future filled with weather-resistant insulated jackets. Well the future is now, thanks to the Columbia Hawks Prairie Women's Hybrid Jacket. This parka-length jacket is filled with water-resistant Thermarator insulation that maintains warmth when you're caught in bad weather. A water-resistant membrane with nylon-ripstop accents sheds off snow and light precipitation to ensure that inclement weather doesn't slow you down. Zippered hand pockets keep your valuables safe when cold winds howl.
