With a unique discontinuous line design the DS jacket has further developed the StretchDown series allowing more stretch and trapping more heat. The distinctive style of the StretchDown DS provides a really comfortable and warm down jacket with 150g of 800 Fill Power hydrophobic down.
Mountain Hardwear says:
The StretchDown DS (Dynamic Stretch) Jacket features groundbreaking stretch-welded channel construction that traps more warmth than standard stitching. So you get the most comfortable down jacket available anywhere, in a sweet and even stretchier new pattern.
This product is certified to the Responsible Down Standard (RDS) by Control Union.
Mountain Hardwear's StretchDown DS Hooded Jacket provides a good amount of warmth from the 150g of 800 Fill Power down. The down used has been treated with Nikwax making in hydrophobic, meaning that it stays warmer for longer in damp conditions and is able to dry faster. The style of the jacket is firstly down to the stretch welded panels which allow it to trap more warmth than the standard stitched jackets. Added to this is the discontinuous line design which allows more stretch in the jacket, and you can feel this straight away, cutting down on cold spots.
The jacket has two good sized hand pockets and a smaller chest pocket all with zips for added security. There are also two large drop pockets internally for you to store gloves, hats or any other bulky items for keeping you warm. The hood adds that extra layer of protection against the elements and this will certainly be the jacket of choice this winter when heading out.
