This new lightweight vest is a dream come true for lightweight enthusiasts. It is one of the lightest insulated garments you will find. With a full length zipper, 850+ fp goose down and reflective trim this new vest is likely to become your favorite new layer.

Entirely functional piece of kit designed to be the lightest possible. Very high quality down lycra binding and `no collar` design make it the quintesential insulating layer.

Great design and insulation as a layer

I bought one a while back. Rather pricrey but very well made and a great design. As a layer there is no collar to bulk up and interfere. I use a neck tube and tuck it under this layer. On top of a down sleeved top it doubles up insulation to the body and adds very little weight. With a waterproof layer on top I am good for -20 C when my base layer is merino wool along with a down smock. It is very small to pack away and can be used anywhere to increase insulation.
