The most important upgrade is the new Japanese technology 100% pre-consumer recycled 10-denier nylon ripstop. It is more lightweight while more durable, weighing a featherlight 28 g/m2.
Garments are filled with premium 850 fill power European goose down that is PFC-free, RDS-certified, bluesign®-certified, allergen-free, 100% recyclable and completely source track verifiable.
The Ultralight Down Hood 2.0 has a regular fit and can be worn as a standalone or insulation. It is as incredibly ultra-lightweight as its predecessor (282g / 11.6oz in size M) while effectively 15% warmer.
The Ultralight Down Jacket 2.0 is designed to be worn as an insulation jacket with an athletic fit. It is even more lightweight than the previous model (236g / 9.9oz in size M) while equally warm.
Depending on individual circumstances, as a general guideline the Ultralight Down Hood 2.0 and the Ultralight Down Jacket 2.0 will keep you warm at -12°C / 14°F and -9°C / 16°F respectively when worn as a standalone over a base and a mid-layer during low-pulse activity.
