Overstated insulation. Understated design.The down vest is one of the most iconic outdoor garments ever. Our version of this timeless product is based on our famous 1000 fill power Ultralight Down Jacket, resulting in what might be the worlds lightest and warmest full-featured down vest.
Why we made it
- 1000 fill power down provides unrivalled insulation performance.
- Designed for use with outer layers in extreme conditions.
- Possibly the worlds lightest down vest.
The down vest is one of the most iconic outdoor garments ever. Our version of this timeless product is possibly the worlds lightest and warmest full-featured down vest. Wear it under a shell on colder days, or over a shirt when travelling.
The 1000 fill power platinum down we use is unique in its ability to insulate, it is only us and a handful of other companies in the world that can afford to use this amazing natural material. It can be compressed to a minimal package, and lofts immediately when unpacked. The sensation of warmth is immediate when you put it on. The down is also treated for water resistance which makes it more durable, while keeping you warm and dry even in the wet.
The shell material is a Japanese ultra-lightweight DWR-treated 34 g/m2 ripstop nylon that is so thin, you can distinguish the actual down clusters through the fabric. If you wear it as an outer garment, please note that although the ultralight fabric is durable for its weight, it can get torn by sharper objects.
1000 fill power goose down insulation that is fluorocarbon free, RDS-certified, bluesign-certified, allergen-free, 100% recyclable and completely sourcetrack verifiable.
Ultralight DWR-treated outer fabric that is wind and water resistant.
One chest pocket and two hand pockets insulated on the outside keeping hands and smart-phones protected and warm.
Athletic fit, meant to go under a shell jacket. If you plan to wear it as a stand-alone vest, consider choosing one size larger than you normally do.

Wash & Care
Hand wash or cold water wash. Do not use fabric softner.
