The Virtuoso uses 650-fill power down insulation in a wind and water resistant package that's light and breathable. It's the right amount of warmth to add for setting up high camp or when conditions turn cold and nasty on route. The adjustable hood adds an extra degree of protection and cord binding in the hem keeps it from lifting when you reach up or extend forward.

Waterproof garments use waterproof-breathable technologies and are fully seam-taped. Water-resistant garments use waterproof-breathable technologies but their seams are not taped. Water-resistant garments repel water and protect against wind but are not made of waterproof fabric.
|Waterproof with critically taped seams|
A windproof garment does not allow any air to permeate the fabric. A garment with windproof panels has panels of fabric that are totally windproof, but the rest of the garment may not be windproof. A wind-resistant garment resists some wind, but not as much as a garment that is windproof.
Durable water repellency
Usually referred to as DWR. A treatment made to fabrics that causes water to bead and run off instead of soaking through.
