The DAS Light Insulated Hoody is the ideal synthetic insulated jacket for anyone who wants a higher level of weather resistance while maintaining a low weight. At just 330g this is a truly featherweight jacket, and yet it boasts an impressive amount of durability over its heavier competition.
An ultralight belay hoody for getting after it in the mountains. The DAS® Light Hoody is a core alpine piece designed using PlumaFill synthetic insulation; its ultralightweight, water-resistant, downlike warmth is paired with a coated shell for enhanced weather resistance. Fair Trade Certified™ sewn.

Patagonia's DAS Light Insulated Hoody is based heavily on the popular Micro Puff, and use a similar brickwork baffle pattern to give excellent warmth across the body. Patagonia’s proprietary Plumafill particles provide perfect performance, and offer class-leading insulation and temperature regulation throughout the Hoody. Combined with the Pertex Quantum Pro face fabric, the DAS Light Insulated Hoody is a warmer jacket than initial impressions suggest, and is ideal for everything from chilly days on windswept hills to winter belays.
It quickly became an essential piece for blustery autumn days when warmth was needed and the weather threatened – the additional wind resistance is a boon in a rain shower. The jacket packs into a hand pocket for portability, and while it can be an effort to fit it in, it does result in a bundle that is small enough to throw in the bottom of your pack in a just-in-case scenario. To keep the weight down, the DAS Light does lack some of the features found on its bigger brother – the DAS Parka. There is no hem adjustment here, and 3 pockets instead of the 5 on the Parka. The fit is slimmer too, so I would recommend your normal Patagonia size for the DAS Light Hoody.
