The Microlight Vest is a lightweight, micro baffled, Hydrophobic down filled vest. It is a fantastic option for anyone wanting extra mid layer warmth at minimum weight and packsize. The streamlined shape offers a great fit with no excess fabric - perfect as a mid layer for hill, mountain or ski use - ideal with a waterproof or windproof outer layer.
The Microlight Vest is a light-weight, weather-resistant down vest, designed to provide core warmth for a range of fast-and-light activities and day-to-day use. A mini stitch-through baffle construction and a minimal, uncluttered design make the Microlight Vest ideal for use as a layering piece for alpine climbers, or an adaptable stand-alone vest for day-to-day use.
110g (Large) of 750FP Hydrophobic Down provides excellent warmth without compromising on weight, and is protected by a breathable and windproof Pertex® Microlight outer fabric. The Microlight Vest is a technically featured piece, with YKK zipped pockets throughout, including a chest pocket which doubles as an integrated stuff sack for increased packability. Lycra® bound armholes and a hem drawcord ensure a secure fit for layering use.
