Our most popular technical duvet jacket is ideal for Scottish winter and Alpine summer use. The Lightline Plus is a well featured jacket that offers exceptional warmth and a very small pack size. 250g of 90% pure down fill (600+ fill power) in a stitch through baffle construction provides warmth for use down to -10° and beyond. Exlusive Drilite Loft outer is totally windproof, highly water-resistant and offers full down loft protection in all but the driving rain.

Features: Two-way front zip, two external hand warmer pockets with zip entry, large internal pocket bag that maximises storage space.

Note: Prices in Europe!

Even though not a Expedition duvet, the Lightline performs extremely well. So far the jacket has keeped me warm even at temperatures as cold as -22F without any prob.

I have used this jacket for nearly two seasons now and so far it has kept it part in keeping me warm. The drilite fabric also sheds rain, ice and damp snow very well: Drilite has also keeped the down dry in short periods rain (Drilite is waterproof/breahtable, but on this jacket the seams are not taped).

The jacket is light enough to carry on a daypack and comes with a stuffbag. When packed in the stuffsack it's about the size of 1l milk bottle.

Pros: Warm, light, hooded, "waterproof", and doesn't take too much room (also quite cheap as I got mine for about 120$).

Cons: Stitched through baffles, could also have two (or more) pockets (on the hand, and mayby a map pocket), and has leaked a bit of feathers (well all down garments seem to leak a bit).
