The Ascent Jacket shares a similar feature set to the Neutrino Endurance, but features 650FP Hydrophobic Duck Down within a stitch-through baffle construction. Still a high quality down rating but not as effective as 800 and 850 Fill Power. The Ascent has used an updated water resistant Pertex Enduarance outer fabric which has allowed the jacket to shed weight compared to the previous years model. With 295g of 650 Fill Hydrophobic Duck down, it's very warm for it's weight but also relatively light and is fantastic value for money. Another changed feature is that it no longer has a detachable hood, now opting for an attached, adjustable one instead.
A unique feature of the Ascent Jacket is the separate down filled collar with a tricot fleeced lining, keeping your face protected from the elements and providing increased levels of warmth. Designed specifically for winter climbing, the Ascent Jacket also features a helmet compatible hood with a flexible polymer peak, anti-snag Velcro adjustable cuffs and a stuff sack for increased packability. The jacket also has plenty of storage pockets with 2 large tricot lined hand warmer pockets and a zipped internal security pocket for handy essentials.
