    Design has changed from previous versions
    Great value for money, good shoulder baffle design Design isn't as good as it used to be

    I have had a previous incarnation of this jacket, when it was under the Wed'ze marque. I loved it for the fit, the warmth and the tiny pack size (I've used it as a warm overlayer for skiing and other activities, and just wandering around town in winter).

    When I saw that the Quechua version was discounted to £22, I thought I'd buy another one 'just in case', assuming the design and fit would be the same.

    Sadly, the design has changed, for the worse (for me, anyway).

    The upper arm of the sleeve is baggier than it used to be, even if used as an overlayer.
    The sleeves are about 2.5cm shorter.
    The hood design has changed, so that the hood feels tight at the back, pulling the body of the jacket up, and feeling somewhat restrictive. The previous fit was perfect for me, although only having a simple lycra-bound edge elastication to hold it up; if can be blown down by winds.

    I had liked the design of the shoulder baffles on the Wed'ze version, as they have raglan seams, and thus eliminate the cold spot commonly found in other down jackets that have a simple shoulder seam. This design feature is retained in the Quechua version.

    If you have short, very muscular arms, and a squat neck, this might be a perfect lightweight overlayer or warm midlayer.

    Sadly, even at the bargain price, I returned the jacket due to the poor fit for me.

    Good
    Weight, Value, General fit sizing, limited fill in some cells

    I got this in the sale, so it's a bargain. More than acceptable in every way - almost.
    Be aware, that as it's a very thin jacket, the amount of fill in each compartment is very little and I've seen many examples where the odd cell look almost empty, especially in the arms. In a puffier jacket this would be unlikely to happen with natural variation. With so little fill it seems unavoidable. However, it's still a good jacket and warm enough for it's weight/packability

    Great value, terrible fit for normal humans
    Value for money, weight Fit

    Great value for money, but rather let down by issues with fit. Those with normal length arms and a trim torso will find the body and sleeves excessively baggy for the length of the arms. The hood is hopelessly small (I don't have a huge head either), such that the shoulders ride up when it is on (no hat or helmet).

    As others have mentioned, a waist draw-cord would have been nice (although adding weight and cost), but not necessary had the fit been better considered.

Tips

Care instructions
Caring for down jackets requires special attention. We recommend using specialist dry cleaning services for the care of your down jacket. Washing: machine wash at 30°C; add 2 tennis balls to ventilate the down. Rinse twice. Tumble drying highly recommended: synthetic programme with three tennis balls to ventilate the down; put the jacket through several cycles until the down has dried completely, otherwise it may clump, losing insulating power. See the care instructions in the online guide
Storage Tips
Keep on a hanger in a clean and dry place
Restricted use
Not suitable for lowland hiking in rainy weather

Features

Inflating Power of down/feather filling
For this down jacket with its 85/15 filling, the inflating power is guaranteed to be 660 CUIN or above. The fill power is a measure of the down's thermal insulation capacity and its potential to "trap" air. Down with higher fill power takes up more space, trapping more air and providing greater thermal insulation.
The advantages of duck down and feather filling*
The durable and inflating properties of down give this jacket 3 qualities for hiking: - Thermal insulation thanks to the air trapped in the down and feathers - Ultra low weight: down is lighter than synthetic wadding while offering the same degree of warmth. This allows you to lighten the load in your backpack - Ultra compactable * Our feathers come from Chinese ducks reared for their meat; we remove their feathers after slaughter. We hold the death certificates for these ducks.
Care advice for a down jacket with down and feather filling
The down jacket can be worn throughout the winter and will certainly need to be washed. Follow our advice by clicking on the link below: <a href="http://www.quechua.com/wash-your-down-jacket" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.quechua.fr/sites/quechua_com/files/image-entretien-doudoune.jpg" alt="How to wash and dry your down jacket"><br>http://www.quechua.com/wash-your-down-jacket</a>
In case of rain
The material of the quilted jacket is water repellent. It allows drops of water to slide off the fabric which delays penetration of water into the jacket while you get out of the rain. But the down jacket is not waterproof. We therefore recommend wearing a waterproof jacket over the down jacket in the event of prolonged exposure to rain.
