The Microlight jacket is a lightweight down jacket that really lives up to its name. The 125g of Hydrophobic European goose down fill easily compresses within the lightweight outer fabric and the whole jacket fits easily into its own stuff sack. There's no excuses for not taking this versatile jacket everywhere with you - safe in the knowledge that you have a very warm layer when you need it.
The Microlight manages to combine form and function with a women's specific fit that maximises warmth to weight and ensures a great fit without the 'bagginess' often associated with technical light weight clothing.
The Microlight Jacket is a light-weight, weather-resistant down jacket, designed for fast-and-light use in situations where warmth, weight and packability are prime concerns. The latest variation of the Microlight Jacket features an improved fit and increased packability with the addition of a separate stuff sack.
A mini stitch-through baffle construction and a minimal, uncluttered design make this jacket a perfect layering piece for alpine climbers, or an adaptable stand-alone jacket for day-to-day use. 125g (M) of 750FP Hydrophobic Down provides excellent warmth without compromising on weight, and is protected by a breathable and windproof Pertex Microlight outer fabric. The Microlight Jacket features YKK zipped pockets throughout, including an integrated stuff sack, and Lycra bound cuffs for secure layering use.
