A springtime ski tour along the Mammoth Crest can blend four seasons in a single day. Our Ultralight Down Vest will block the wind and trap core warmth when temperatures plunge. High-lofting, extremely compressible, 800-fill-power premium European goose down is encased in an ultralight nylon ripstop shell that's tough for its weight and sheds moisture with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. The thin, thermally efficient silhouette further traps heat and is complemented by variegated channel construction that uses less down while remaining warm, and the vest slides easily over light layers or under a shell. Details: two zippered handwarmer pockets, a drawcord hem and stuffsack.

We use down insulation in some of our products because of its excellent performance: down has a higher warmth-to-weight ratio than synthetic insulation, and it is also more compressible.
