Alpkit Filo Jacket
© UKC Gear
Our Filo jackets are stuffed with 90/10 700+ (European scale) fill power white goose down. For more information about down see our Down Information Page on the Alpkit website. There is less down than last year but we have used better quality down. The four panel construction should fit the body better which means less cold air circulating around your body as you move around.
All Filo models use a stitch-through construction, for warmth without the weight penalty. This is a proven method of stitching together down jackets. A fleecy lining on the collar will keep your neck extra cosy warm. The shell material is constructed from Micro Ripstop, this has been tested over the last year in our Filium coLAB product and we have had no negative feedback. It is soft, compressible and quiet.
The jackets do zip together but we cannot imagine why you would want to do so. Two lined hand warmer pockets on the outside. And an interior pocket is a convenient place to store camera batteries and anything else that needs to stay warm.
