The Stellar Down Parka is a high-volume low-weight down parka with outstanding insulation capabilities, built for extremely cold conditions. Designed as a stand-alone top layer, with a weather resistant shell fabric and technical details optimized for alpine activities, it can also be used as a packable emergency layer to be worn at the summit, at the belay, or in the bivouac.
The numbers speak for themselves: Filled with 260g/9.2oz of 800FP down and with a total weight of 669g/23.6oz in size medium, the Stellar Down Parka has one of the highest warmth-to-weight ratios in its class. It will outperform most comparable alternatives available on the market.
But numbers are not everything — down insulation is equal parts science and passion to us. Leaning on years of experience and implementing our reductive design philosophy, the Stellar Down Parka is meticulously designed for outdoor extremes through the use of exceptional materials and carefully considered technical details.
It is filled with premium 800 fill power HyperDRY™ European down that is PFC-free, RDS-certified, bluesign®-certified, allergen-free, 100% recyclable and completely source track verifiable. The down is hydrophobic, maintaining much of its amazing insulation capabilities even when wet.
The shell material is a Japanese ultralight DWR-treated 53g/1.86oz ripstop nylon that is water-resistant, wind resistant, stretchable and very durable for its weight. It will hold off the wind and the wet for extended periods. Despite a comparably robust appearance, the parka can be compressed into a small package, and stuffed in the accompanying packing bag.
The oversized hood will fit over most alpine helmets, and paired with the tall collar it can easily be adjusted to keep the cold out. The large fleece-lined hand pockets provides plenty of room for your gear, and the large chest pockets are easily accessed when using alpine equipment. There is also one zippered inner pocket and one inner mesh pocket. It is equipped with our signature stretchable interior cuff, for ease of use and increased weather resistance. It has a regular fit with an extended back-piece. If you plan to wear it over a shell layer, consider sizing up.
The Stellar Down Parka is an essential part of The Stellar System™, our expanding ecosystem of premium technical layering products for demanding on-mountain activities.

Wash & Care
