The Neo Down Jacket is a no frill high end insulation piece with the emphasis on maximising warmth and minimising weight. The key to the this is the exceptionally high quality down used (970+ Fill Power)
The Neo Jacket is a reincarnation of the Turbo Jacket, but with a hood. It is our lightest full-zip design with a water-resistant shell. It is not really a pure insulation piece - it hasnt got enough down for that - but if you're in work-out mode in sub zero Celsius, the Neo will help maintain that fine balance between overheating and chilling out, making it ideal for medium to high-intensity activities such as snowshoeing, back-country skiing, winter hiking etc.
The Neo Jacket has two hand-warmer pockets and an internal chest pocket that doubles as a stuff sack. It has 105g of the highest quality 970 fill power polish goose down. The down is held in place by a stitch-through baffle construction. The Neo has a water-resistant outer which is shower and moisture proof to help keep your down dry.
You expect the highest quality of down with Crux and the Neo Down Jacket is no exception with an incredible 970+ fill power of responsibly sourced European down. With this quality of down the New jacket is supremely warm for its weight and packs down really small. The supplied stuff sack is drinks can sized.
The water resistant outer helps keep the down dry. There are 2 hand warmer pockets and the hood is snug and has no adjustment to keep the weight down. The hem and wrist cuffs are lycra bound to ensure a close fit to maximise heat retention.
