REVIEW: Mountain Equipment Vega Jacket

This topic has been archived, and won't accept reply postings.
It's cut generously, to fit easily over other layers

A high quality midweight down jacket, the Vega is perfect from everything from bouldering and winter hillwalking, through to winter alpinism and expeditions, says Tom Ripley. And crucially, it won't look out of place down the pub or at the Kendal Mountain Festival - whenever such things are allowed again!

That really is dedication to the cause: climbing the 1938 route on the North Face of the Eiger just so you could review this jacket

I have a 2018 Vega and it's very usable.   Also luckily I'm short enough for it to cover my butt

It’s a hard job, but someone’s got to do it. Was roasting on the bivi!

I'm jealous. My overriding memory of that bivi was one of being very, very cold...

Couldn't agree more. This is a cracking jacket. It goes in my bag almost every time I head out from ski tours to alpine climbs to wild camping and I even use it walking the dog on a cold morning! Used it down to -20 and I was warm enough when walking with a mid layer and base layer under neath. Hood is outstanding with or without a helmet.
