Product Description

Forget fanciful names inspired by Himalayan peaks; the Montbell Men’s Extremely Light Down Jacket tells it like it is. At a wispy 5.7 ounces, this ultralight down layer provides high-loft warmth for demanding climbing, skiing, and backpacking applications. Stuffed with feather-light 900-fill goose down, the Extremely Light Jacket packs down to nearly nothing and fluffs up easily when a frigid gust hits the belay. A DWR-coated Ballistic Airlight shell brushes off snow and light drizzle, and the included stuff sack helps it disappear into your pack when you’re on the go.


Material: [Shell] 15D ballistic nylon Insulation: 900-fill goose down Hood: No Pockets: None Waterproof: Water-resistant Core Venting: No Weight: 5.7oz (162g) Recommended Use: Alpine climbing, skiing, backpacking, mountaineering Manufacturer Warranty: Lifetime Country of Origin: China

they appear to have shaved an ounce off of their previously light weight jacket....this one is down to 5.7 oz! No pockets, no frills...perfect for winter desert belays or Canadian Rockies summer belays....of course you would not want to try and climb in it....I love the weight in terms of strapping its self contained bag to my harness, would also consider it a mid layer ski and ice climbing opt.
