The Women's Desire Lightweight Down Jacket is an ultra light, warm and packable down jacket with a unique cuff system. Packs into it's own pocket for convenient storage when your on the move.
Desire is our dedicated lightweight down jacket for women. It features a unique cut and design for female users making it a versatile jacket you can use as an everyday stand alone item or as a fully technical piece of equipment you pack when you need to add a light and warm jacket to your gear selection. Designing the Desire the Yeti crew kept the focus on keeping the weight to a minimum (a size small weighs only 184 grams) while still offering solid insulation, so the jacket can be used as a year round addition to the wardrobe.
SERIES OF LIGHT-WEIGHT-PRODUCTSSince 1983, we have been developing high-quality down sleeping bags and down clothing. For adventurers and explorers we have always been fighting for each millimeter of pack size and each gram of total weight. However, in everyday live or on small trips the equipment of people often is still inappropriate.
THE TECHNOLOGY INSIDE
The Next to Nothing Technology among others means that: for all Companyon products we are processing the currently lightest and most exclusive materials.
Thus, the downproof rip-stop nylon fabric weighs just 25 grammes per square metre. The secret of lightness is based on the 1,000 kilometres yarn holding the downs together. This yarn has the size of a twentieth of a human hair, these 1,000 kilometres of yarn weigh only 140 grammes.
In all over the world, there are just five weaving machines available who can manufacture such a fine material. All these machines can be found in the North of Japan. Each of them produces only 35 metres per day.
For this reason the delivery quantity of Companyon products is limited.
|For this reason, we have created a professional equipment for everyday life with extremely small pack sizes under the label “Companyon“. The weight of Passion sleeping bags or ultra-light-weight clothing is hardly noticeable. Almost weightless they provide for a comfortable body climate and feel soft and silky.|
The Yeti Purity Lightweight Down jacket is basically the women's version of the men's Purity jacket. It offers a great warmth to weight ratio and is one of the lightest hood-less down jackets we stock with a large amount of high quality down fill.
What we particularly like about this jacket is it's unique cuff system. What's not shown very clear in the image, is that the cuff has an internal elastic cuff to prevent cold drafts from getting in, while still keeping the back of your hand and your palms covered. You can also tighten up the hem drawcord to prevent drafts from entering there too.
Overall a really great jacket. The only thing that might not be to everyone's liking is the outer face fabric as it's a little rustly.
