The Microlight Alpine Event jacket is a super lightweight, narrow baffled, fully waterproof, seam sealed down jacket. It takes everything we've learned from making lightweight down pieces and combines this with our waterproof shell expertise to create a down insulated, fully waterproof jacket.
We use 140g/5oz (size large) of 750 fill European goose down and a 2 layer eVent® fabric shell that combine to create a warm and breathable jacket that is ideal for Alpine climbing, winter mountain walking and for those changeable days at the crag spent dodging the rain.
Super lightweight, fully taped 2-layer (15D x 40D) ripstop
It's available in men's and women's styles, both in 2 colour options.
