Our Montane Anti-Freeze Down Jacket has been tested by UKC who found the combination of cut, fill, features and price hard to beat, awarding it the coveted 'Best in Test' accolade.
Stand-out aspects of this ultra versatile midweight down jacket were its active mountain fit, describing it as 'snug without being restrictive' and praising its ability to stay unrestrictively close to the body regardless of activity level.
"...good for active pursuits, chilly bouldering, as an outer layer for belaying and, due to its attractive appearance, for wearing around town."
Recognising this jacket as a true mid-weight insulation layer, it was applauded for a fully practical feature set - such as helmet compatible hood and two-way front zip - which made it ideal for mountain/belaying use. Multiple pockets - the main hand ones being fleece-lined - alongside its waterproof stuff sac (that can be 'easily squashed small and easily clipped onto a harness.') were also applauded for increasing usability.
