A warmer spin on the ever-popular Uplink Vest, the Aura is ready for all your cold-weather adventures. It's loaded with 100g synthetic insulation under a DWR-treated shell, so it stands up to dampness and keeps the chills at bay in the backcountry. The internal chest pocket doubles as a stuff sack, so it takes up very little room in your pack.
- Lightweight 20-denier ripstop polyester with a DWR finish.
- Thermolite synthetic insulation (35% recycled content) retains warmth when wet.
- Insulation is quilted to one fabric layer to hold it in place.

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.
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.
