Super lightweight, warm, highly packable and an ideal layer piece. The Broad Peak is perfect for throwing in your pack for colder days or as an emergency layer as it's so light you barely notice it until you need it and then it's worth it's weight in gold!
Perfect insulation: the Broad Peak Light IN Jacket Men features an extremely soft, lightweight, wind- and water-repellent Pertex® Quantum material, which is complemented by a down and feather filling. This makes the jacket not only weather-resistant but also warm. To prove itself in the mountains, the Broad Peak Light IN Jacket Men features backpack- and climbing harness-compatible zipper pockets. If need be, the jacket can be stored in the side pocket. You can put it to all-round use in the mountains.
Mammut's Broad Peak Light IN Down Jacket is a super lightweight, highly packable piece of kit. It is best suited as an outer layer on cooler days or as a layer on cold outings. The jacket uses really high quality down to provide the warmth and the super reliable Pertex Quantum outer fabric which gives wind resistance and some water resistance.
The finish of the jacket is stylish and the soft comfortable fabrics are particularly nice. It minimises features to focus on low weight and pack size but you still get two good sized pockets, high collar and elasticated cuffs and hem. This jacket definitely goes along the athletic fit lines, I'm always a medium and this jacket is the first time I've ever thought I might get more use out of a large.
