High Tech Outerwear
USA Today has a roundup of new high-tech jackets, and some of them even come in versions sized and designed for women.
The 2L iPod Jacket has a soft, flexible control pad integrated into the sleeve so you can control your iPod without taking it out of the specially designed protective pocket. It's also a super-warm and waterproof jacket made for snowboarding.
The North Face Met 5 jacket has rechargeable heating panels that can keep you warm for about five hours with one charge. In men's sizes only, but it's thin and meant to be worn as an under layer, so women may be able to find a size that works.
