Exceptionally light and warm Allied Feather Down Jacket.
Insulation doesn't get much lower in weight or bulk than this. Exceptionally light, the Featherlite™ Down Jacket is highly versatile for year round mountain activities. Wear as a mid-layer when moving quickly in really cold conditions or as outer insulation on cool evening camps. Packing down to the size of a large orange it will hardly be noticed when stowed in your backpack, whilst the PERTEX® Quantum outer fabric allows the down to loft to its capacity on demand.

The Featherlite™ Down Jacket uses PERTEX® fabric which contains a Durable Water Repellency (DWR) as the first barrier in keeping you dry. Clean your garment in order to maintain this.
MONTANE® recommends a professional cleaning service for down products.
If you choose to wash your down clothing yourself, it ideally needs to be handwashed and care must be taken to dry the product correctly.
Wash using a mild detergent in warm water (around 30°C/86°F). MONTANE® recommends Nikwax Down Wash.
Do not use fabric softeners, bleach or liquid detergent.
Rinse the product thoroughly after washing to remove any soap traces.
You should dry the product carefully in a tumble drier on a cool setting. You may need to stop the tumble drier at regular intervals to loft the down by hand (TIP: place a bag of three clean tennis balls in the tumble drier. This agitates the down to help stop it clumping together when it dries).
It will take some time to dry a down product thoroughly, even if the outer fabric is dry the down may not be.
