Mountain Hardwear Micro Ratio Hooded Down JacketMountain Hardwear's Micro Ratio series of garments uses 650 Fill Power hydrophobic 'Q.Shield' down to create a lightweight flexible midlayer.

Mountain Hardwear says:

Low-profile hooded jacket with an outstanding warmth-to-weight ratio. The Micro Ratio Hooded Down Jacket is fortified with Q.Shield™ DOWN 650-fill insulation, which retains critical loft and warmth even when wet, superior warmth to weight ratio.

Mountain Hardwear Q Shield Down Logo at Ultralight Outdoor Gear|Q.Shield DOWN is a giant leap forward in down performance. Down fibers are infused with a permanent water repellency that helps maintain insulating performance even when exposed to moisture.

Mountain Hardwear's Micro Ratio Garments are filled with 650 Fill Power hydrophobic 'Q.Shield' down, so they will not achieve the warmth to weight ratios of garments using higher Fill Power down clusters, however they are still highly technical and very lightweight garments. The Micro Ratio garments are ideal mid layer insulation that will comfortably replace a much heavier fleece.

The outer fabric has a nice matt finish rather than the shiny appearance associated with the lightest garments and with a higher thread count it will be more durable. Cuffs are lightly elasticated, there's a drawcord hem and two external hand warmer pockets. The hood is a simple close fitting design which is the most efficient when it comes to insulating your head.

Its not clear on the photos but the Python Green has a Dark Green lining - which is very nice!

Light and warm for hiking around zero deg C

I like this jacket for its low weight, comfort and fit. 2 handwarming pockest are great and hold some gear. It keeps you warm around zero deg C when not active and I am sure it will perform well in subzero temperatures when walking about. I combined it with a Minimus jacket for better rain protection. It gets steamy underneath with a multilayering system and a heavy pack load and opening the front zips vents effectively. Great product and could not recommend it highly enough!
