    Great Jacket

    I bought the jacket as a general use bit of kit. It stuffs down nice and small, very light, warm and comfortable. I'd 100% buy another.

    Great jacket

    Thin and comfortable and very warm. I am not sure it is quite as good for temperatures -5 -10 as advertised but for a normal British winter day it is perfectly adequate.

    Men's hiking down jacket

    Would benefit with having draw strings at the waist.
    Other than that, it's a great jacket

Approved by
All our quilted jackets have been laboratory tested on thermal mannequins in 5 km/h winds, reproducing a hike with moderate exertion. This allows you to make the best choice by comparing the degree of thermal insulation on a scale of 1 to 5.
Tests
Thermal chamber test It allows us to check our design choices. We reproduce the temperature, wind and humidity conditions that you encounter in the mountains. In this way we can adapt our thermal insulation where you most need it. Feather impermeability test We use a test machine to ensure that the feathers do not escape from your jacket during your activities. Our fabrics are thus "featherproof" and so ensure lasting warmth.

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 hiking in the rain

NEW IN 2016
X-Light is the number 1 TECHNOLOGY (Bodymapping) available in 2 MODELS: X-light 1 and X-Light 2. Available in 7 colours providing you with plenty of choice.
Inflating Power of down/feather filling
For this down jacket filled 75/25, the inflating power of the down/feather is guaranteed to be greater than or equal to 540 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 (for the back and front of the down jacket)
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.
The advantages of synthetic down filling (for the arms, sides and hood)
Synthetic down (wadded) filling provides an appealing alternative to feather down: - it provides good thermal insulation even when wet - it provides a little breathability and may be recommended for dynamic activity (down is recommended for static or moderate activity)
Care advice for a down jacket filled with down and feathers
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="https://d1065et7n9hdcp.cloudfront.net/__imageservlet/file/damimport/pj/024/d14728101586210/doudoune_plume_hommz.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.
Note regarding the light colour versions
The X-Light down jacket is made with a fine fabric in order to make it lightweight and compact. Please note that the feathers are slightly visible through the fabric of the orange and yellow colour versions of the range.
