The Summit has evolved into one of the most versatile and durable down jackets, ideal for cold weather mountaineering, hanging out at base camp and for use throughout the year for cold days at the crag.
Pertex Endurance with contrast waterproof shoulder panels providing superb weather protection against wind, snow and rain showers as well as excellent abrasion resistance.
Filling: 250g of 90% goose down (660+EU; 725+US fill power) in a stitch through construction.
Detachable down-filled hood with wrap-around face protection and stiffened visor for extreme protection. Collar draw cord and full length down filled press stud zip baffle Two high hand-warmer pockets, technically cut to provide optimal positioning when wearing a harness. Internal zipped security pocket and two deep internal mesh storage pockets. Full length, 2-way YKK front zip with anti-snag detail and studded, down-filled storm flap. Elasticated hem cord with one-handed toggle adjustment. Adjustable velcro cuffs
We say: The detachable hood adds to its versatility and can be dispensed with in the High Street or at Stanage.
