The Yeti Ace is a high warmth jacket with a good amount of down for the surprisingly light weight. The Ace is made with high quality materials from the 'Next to Nothing' outer through to the traceable Crystal Down.
We are thrilled to present our new ultralight H-Box Down Jacket.
Ace is an outstandingly warm and light H-Box jacket weighing only 418 g (size M), but still offering an outstanding warmth/weight ratio – not least due to the filling of pure Crystal Down which is 95/5 European White Goose down with a fill power of 800+ cuin (Euro Standard) or 870+ cuin after the US standard. It is designed with a slightly longer back for better protection and comfort.
Ace has a 2-way front zipper with reflective bands, inner windflap and chin protection. It also has hem adjustment and a double hood adjustment as well as invisible elastic cuffs and 2 zippered outside pockets.
Yeti's Ace Down Jacket is uber stylish as with a lot of the Yeti designs but more importantly it is really comfortable and warm to wear. The super soft 'next to nothing' material they use is really soft and comfortable then the H-Box design ensures warmth is uniform across the jacket.
There is a change in design and materials across the shoulders to give some added strength and therefore durability but I would not trust this to take a fully loaded pack and the wear and tear that comes with that kind of use. All of the zips are quite chunky but in my opinion much easier to use and much more durable than on other lightweight down jackets.
The hood is fully adjustable with three toggles to keep the elements out. The jacket has elasticated cuffs that are stitched inside the actual sleeve as a skirt which works perfectly at allowing mobility while restricting draughts and heat loss. To top it all of this jacket packs down really well into its own pocket meaning it is great to stow in your pack and take out if you feel the cold as much as me.
