The neatly ribbed micro baffles are packed with Hydrodown – treated with PFC free Nikwax, water resistant in damp conditions. It has nice tailored lines that layer easily under a shell and a wired peak on the adjustable helmet compatible hood for protecting the face from stormy weather, ideal for use in unfriendly conditions. This jacket benefited from an extended test in Peru, and I lived in it – even slept in it for days on end. The lightweight Quantum CS10 Pertex shell stood up well to the rigours of expedition life. This technical, warm and lightweight down jacket is excellent value. Weight 390g.
