If you're a wardrobe minimalist and like the idea of finding two jackets that will serve nearly all of your boy's outdoor needs, get him a waterproof shell and The North Face Boys' Thermoball Full-Zip Jacket. Thanks to innovative insulation technology, this jacket is more functional than a comparable insulating down puff or fleece jacket. The North Face worked with PrimaLoft to develop the jacket's Thermoball insulation, which is as lightweight, warm, and packable as a down; lower bulk than other synthetic insulations like fleece; and maintains its loft and warmth when wet, unlike down. This jacket offers a lot of warmth at a very light weight and can be packed down into one of the hand pockets, making it is easy to stuff into a backpack or luggage. It can be worn on its own or layered under a shell for pretty much any cool-to-cold weather activity, allowing you to keep jacket purchases to a minimum.
