The Megawatt Jacket is made from high quality goose down and quick drying Polartec Alpha insulation to give you the warmth and breathability you need during active pursuits.

Description    Features

Double down on the new world order-the Megawatt Jacket has the unique feature of double the insulation for active use in cold conditions.

This hybrid jacket boasts the supreme thermal regulation of Polartec Alpha-stuffed throughout the entire jacket-and the unmatchable warmth of a water-resistant, 800-fill-power goose down-strategically placed in the torso and attached, adjustable hood. Throw in a wicking mesh lining and Pack Pockets, and the Megawatt Jacket is a powerhouse of winter warmth.

The Megawatt Jacket is the perfect type of jacket for wearing during alpine climbing and ski touring. This is mainly due to it's insulation. It's filled with a mix of 800 fill goose down in the hood and torso with Polartec Alpha insulation spread throughout. This means it's a lot more breathable than normal down filled jackets so can be used for winter active pursuits, without feeling like you have to take it off. It's fast drying, highly packable and provides high warmth for a low weight.

There are alternative insulation garments that are more suited to wearing around camp - Polartec Alpha is about keeping you vented even though you are also being kept insulated. Its quite a breakthrough, especially for cold weather walking when you need insulation but start sweating hard when you reach a strenuous bit. Weight for weight Polartec Alpha is only about half as warm as Primaloft so the king of insulation keeps its crown - but Alpha has its place - I recently wore an Alpha garment all day while walking in Corsica in particularly cold conditions and stayed warm & comfortable for the duration - I kept checking my baselayer, which stayed completely dry.

It features a helmet compatible hood with a drawcord adjustment, a two way zipper to fit with a harness and a drawcord adjustable hem to keep the cold out. Soft micro fleece lines the 2 zippered hand warmer pockets and 2 mesh inner pockets. The cuffs feature interior lycra-bound inners with thumb loops for preventing the jacket sleeves from riding up. It's a super soft and comfortable jacket that you won't want to take it off!
