While shells, mountaineering and backcountry jackets may get all the press, there was no shortage of new down jackets on display at the SIA (Snowsports Industry of America) Snow Show in Denver, Colo. from Jan. 31 to Feb. 3. There were innovative designs and color schemes as well as brand new synthetic and natural down technologies. We put together a photo gallery of our favorite down jackets for next season from SIA 2013.
