High-powered 850-fill goose down insulation keeps you plenty warm while you belay your ice climbing partner, and a sleek silhouette means you won't look like an overstuffed teddy bear. Pack this uber-light jacket into its own pocket to maximize precious packing space as you prepare for a month-long ski tour of Argentina.Down insulates like nothing else, offering unparalleled warmth-to-weight ratio. In layman's terms, you get a lot of warmth without the jacket weighing a ton. However, wet down doesn't insulate worth a darn; typically, synthetic insulators are preferred for damp, moist, or outright wet conditions. The folks at Mountain Hardwear decided that change all of that with Q-Shield Down. Down fibers are infused with a permanent water repellancy that helps maintain loft, critical to insulating capacity, even when the down is exposed to moisture. Now, you have a super-light, super-warm down option for super-cold and damp conditions.Quilted construction prevents the down from shifting and settling, so your entire upper body stays warm with nary a cold spot. An active fit still allows for a thermal baselayer underneath, but skims your body to reduce wind resistance and awkward bulk. The low-profile hood also has down insulation for added protection against the cold, and a single drawcord tightens the hem to ward off unwelcome wind. Ski or board in brutal cold, enjoy a winter camping trip in the Uintahs, or stay warm while walking through a winter wonderland in Central Park in this insanely light and warm down jacket.
