Show Description

Embrace cold-weather backpacking, knowing your puffy has you covered. While some down jackets tear and bleed down at the touch of a twig, the Diamond Fuse fabric stands up to rigours of the trail without adding extra weight. The high fill-power down and durable fabric all pack down small, stuffing into its own pocket during bluebird days.

  • Pertex® Quantum nylon ripstop is highly abrasion-resistant, and has a DWR finish.
  • Diamond Fuse technology uses tightly woven, diamond-shaped filaments for improved abrasion- and water-resistance.
  • 800+ fill-power goose down comes from ethically produced sources.
  • Elastic wrist bindings and drawcord hem seal out drafts.
  • Left pocket doubles as a stuff sack.

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.

Length Below hip
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.
