The Incandescent Down Hoody is a warm and comfortable jacket with a silk like softness. It has a shiny appearance due to the lightweight outer fabric which may not be everyone's cup of tea, but the fabric is still durable considering it's weight and is filled with 800+ fill high quality down. The jacket features V shaped baffles to keep the down in place, a good sized chest pocket, two hand warmer pockets and an internal flap to keep the cold out. The left pocket can be used as a stuff sack when traveling to save on space in your pack.
The jacket also features stretch binding cuffs, a drawcord hem and a double-separating center zip so its easier to belay when wearing a harness. Outdoor Research quote this jacket as having a fully adjustable hood, however this is not the case. It does have an elasticated opening where your face goes but that is it. Simple but effective. It would be an ideal jacket for belaying on cold days, winter mountain walks or even just around town.
