The Jöttnar Down Collection Product News


Providing lightweight warmth is the primary function of a down jacket. With unmatched ability to trap and retain body heat, down is the best insulating material available. Jöttnar uses the highest quality hydrophobic down throughout, resulting in ultra-warm jackets with inbuilt moisture resilience.

Described below in ascending order of warmth.


A versatile goose down gilet for cold conditions. Choose the Asta as part of a mountain layering system, or for everyday wear in the valley.


An ultra-lightweight hooded goose down jacket, with a high warmth-to-weight ratio. Choose the Tor when weight-saving and packability are priorities.


A lightweight hoodless goose down jacket for cold mountain conditions. Choose the Thorsen if you prefer to manage head protection independently, or for weight saving.


A hooded version of the Thorsen, and our most popular down jacket. Choose the Fenrir if you're looking for a warm and lightweight do-it-all down jacket.


A goose down jacket with a waterproof outer shell and integrated avalanche rescue technology. Choose the Ragnarok for resort and big mountain riding in deep cold conditions.


Our warmest down jacket. Feature-rich and stuffed with premium 850 Fill Power down. Choose the Fjorm for deep cold conditions.

Regular down's biggest weakness is its reaction to moisture. Exposure to rain will cause normal down to clump, robbing it of loft and warmth.

We use hydrophobic down in all of our jackets, which resists this degradation via a specialist polymer treatment. This increases the down's surface tension, causing water to bead and roll off the cluster. Loft and warmth are therefore maintained.
