An insulated jacket is one of those essential pieces of kit for winter adventures, especially for anyone eager to push their boundaries and find your unknown this season. Whether hiking, ski-touring or mountaineering - exploring in sub-zero temperatures requires expert insulation to keep you comfortable, warm and well-protected on the move.
Key features of a down jacket include baffles, filled with all-important down. This is the essential element of a down jacket and the design feature that helps to lock in heat and keep you warm! At Montane all of the down we use in our mens down jackets is also RDS (Responsible Down Sourced) certified - meaning you can rest assured the animals have been well cared for.
Typically a down jacket forms an essential part of your winter layering system on cold, crisp, dry days when you need to keep the chill at bay. Pair with a breathable base layer and a fleece for ultimate comfort as you explore. Significantly, when down gets wet it can loose its loft, and therefore its ability to trap heat. All of our down products are treated with HyperDRY to help them keep their loft for longer when wet. Should there be rain forecast or a heavy snowy downpour, a waterproof jacket can be thrown on top of your down jacket to help keep you nice and dry.
