    Looks great

    Great for days when a full coat isn't required. Looking forward to taking it on my next walking holiday.

    Great value down gilet - much cheaper than Brands

    We were really pleased with this down gilet as a present for my Mum to keep her warm in the winter both in - and outdoors. Very warm, comfortable, good looking, zipped pockets, bag to pack it down into and so much cheaper than a branded goods equivalent. Only thing I'd warn on is the relatively small sizes. We needed up having to get my Mum a L and she is pretty small (though with a wider back). 'L' is smaller than the equivalent size elsewhere.

Inflating Power of down/feather filling
This 85/15 padded gilet has a guaranteed minimum fill power of 660 CUIN. ). 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 helps to further lighten the load in your backpack - Ultra compressibility * Our feathers come from Chinese ducks bred for their meat. We obtain the feathers after slaughter. We hold the death certificates for the ducks

The advantages of a gilet
A gilet helps to keep the body warm: it protects the chest, neck and kidneys from the cold, as these areas a especially sensitive to chills. It is sleeveless so it saves weight in your backpack, provides even more breathability during exercise and excellent comfort of movement when worn under a jacket. The sleeveless gilet is therefore especially appreciated during exertion while hiking.
