Goldwin is best known for its heavy performance ski wear, but the Japanese brand has also been on the leading edge of incorporating performance wear with everyday fits. Goldwin garments are the perfect mix of sporty and tech-forward, all while working in beautiful colorways and thoughtful cuts that will make you excited to wear them all the time. With most of us fully in the grip of old man winter, we put together a lineup of the biggest heaters that Goldwin has in its arsenal to keep you toasty, dry and stylish all winter long.

You just can't beat a waterproof shell with clean lines. This will get you through any soupy weather with its waterproof and moisture-permeable three-layer GORE-TEX shell. With pockets positioned all over the jacket, you will be ready for anything -- the large side pockets are perfect for those sopping wet gloves, outfitted with drain holes to release moisture.

This thing is as slick as can be, but it still has some outdoor chops -- don't worry. It's made from a durable nylon taffeta and Kodenshi Down insulation that retains your natural warmth. You might be picturing the weight that would typically accompany a jacket with those features, but this cardigan is light enough to toss over another layer for extra warmth. You can really imagine yourself puttering around the ski lodge after a long day on the slopes looking amazingly effortless in this.

Insulated Kodenshi Down that uses infrared rays to retain heat longer? Check. A highly windproof GORE-TEX INFINIUM shell that will keep even the most biting wind at bay? Check. You'll never need another jacket to get you through the cold months. Plus, throw in a Cohaesive stopper, which allows you to adjust the hood cord in just one touch -- a Goldwin special -- and you have the best jacket you could ever cook up.
