The Aconcagua is a classic long duvet with a down hood, the ideal jacket for high peaks and high treks, where altitude and cold are the dangers, not the technical climbing. With a Typical Operating Temperature of –20C and a total weight of around 850gm it offers excellent weight/warmth performance. The proofed Cascade outer is 100% windproof (wind is often the most serious danger on these mountains) and the soft M1 inner is elasticated for a snug fit.
