The Ascent Jacket is a water-resistant down jacket which is very warm for it's weight but also relatively light and fantastic value for money.

Description    Features

The Ascent Jacket shares a similar feature set to the Neutrino Endurance, but features 650FP Hydrophobic Duck Down within a stitch-through baffle construction. We have been able to shed weight by using an updated, water-resistant Pertex® Endurance outer fabric, and light-weight YKK® zips throughout.

A unique feature of the Ascent Jacket is the separate down-filled collar with a tricot fleeced lining, keeping your face protected from the elements and providing increased levels of warmth. Designed specifically for winter climbing, the Ascent Jacket also features a helmet-compatible hood, anti-snag Velcro adjustable cuffs and a stuff sack for increased packability.

When your backpacking around the world, you might not always be looking for the traditional sun, sea and sand trips. So if your venturing to regions which are much colder, then you need to think about suitable clothing. Some of the warmest jackets available are filled with either synthetic insulation or a duck/goose down fill. Synthetic jackets are great but when your traveling with your life in your pack, every ounce of weight and space matter, and down jackets tend to compact down a lot smaller than synthetic jackets do.

Enter the Ascent Jacket! Down fill jackets can get quite pricey as the fill power increases. As this one has a reasonable 650 fill power you can get a good amount of insulation at a price that doesn't make you want to run for the hills. It has water resistant outer fabric which is a plus as not all down jackets do. Overall the Ascent Jacket is very warm for it's weight but also relatively light and is fantastic value for money!
