One minute the wind howls and your breath freezes, and a second later the clouds part and the sun shines. Through the vagaries of spring, our Ultralight Down Hoody warms with 800-fill-power 100% Traceable Down (goose down that can be traced back to birds that were never force-fed, never live-plucked) that traps your heat, and an ultralight yet super tough shell fabric that blocks wind and sheds snow with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. The sewn-through construction, tight channel pattern and just the right amount of down increase versatility for use in more moderate temperatures and diverse activities. The slim silhouette (and low-profile hood with single-pull adjustment) maximizes thermal efficiency and suits its ideal uses: belay parka over light layers at crisp crags, minimalist summer alpine bivies and unmatched warmth layered under a shell. Pockets include two zippered handwarmers (it self-stuffs into one as a travel pillow) and one zippered chest (where it self-stuffs compactly, with clip-in loop). A drawcord hem helps keep in the heat.
Ultra lightweight Pertex Quantum® shell and liner fabrics use interlocking Y-shaped nylon fibers to enhance the performance of the DWR (durable water repellent) finish
