Besides being one of the warmest and lightest down parkas on the market — featuring ethically sourced RDS-certified down and ultralight Japanese fabric — the new Stellar Down Parka also has a class-leading range of technical features designed and tested for alpine activities and outdoor extremes.
High-performance down insulation is a passion to us, and the numbers speak for themselves: Filled with generous amounts of 800FP premium European goose down, the Stellar Down Parka has one of the highest warmth-to-weight ratios in its class, and will outperform most comparable alternatives available on the market.
The new Stellar Down Parka is wrapped in 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, and can easily be compressed into the accompanying packing bag if conditions improve.
Technical features include a generous straight fit with an extended back-piece, and an oversized hood that will fit over most alpine helmets. Large pockets provide plenty of room for essential gear, and are designed for easy access when using alpine equipment. If you plan to wear the Stellar Down Parka 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.
