The Montane Hi-Q Luxe Jacket is a lightweight, highly compressible micro baffle mountain jacket filled with premium PrimaLoft Gold Luxe synthetic insulation. 

Montane says:

Designed and developed for all-day comfort and freedom, the Hi-Q Luxe harnesses the unique properties of innovative PrimaLoft® GOLD Luxe synthetic insulation - exceptional warmth, compressibility and lightweight down-style lofting combined with the superior wet weather performance of traditional PrimaLoft synthetic insulation fibres.

|Pertex Quantum Fabric - Light enough to enable down to loft better, comfortable enough for next-to-skin. Click Logo to read more...

The Hi-Q Luxe Jacket is constructed from lightweight, windproof fabric, with a Down lining that is supremely comfortable next to the skin, highly breathable and fast drying. The micro baffles are filled with premium Primaloft Gold Luxe synthetic fill which combines the loft and fill power properties of down with fast drying warmth of traditional PrimaLoft insulation. Best of both worlds.

It's quite common for synthetic jackets to not have a baffle construction, allowing the fill to spread throughout the jacket. By having the micro baffles, the fill will stay in all the areas so you're not left with cold spots. Plus, we like the styling of them!

Overall, a great alternative to down and not bad for the weight either.

Reliable warmth

This is my go-to winter jacket. The Primaloft insulation feels as warm and light as down, but you don't have the worry about getting it damp on a trek in climates where rain is possible. I put this to the test walking up a steep volcano this April in northern Iceland: a hard sweat-inducing slog up and a pummeling icy wind on the walk around the crater rim. The jacket dealt with this test brilliantly both in terms of dealing with the initial heat build up and then keeping out the clawing wind.
