The Superior Down Jacket is one of Montbell's most iconic products. The balance of warmth, weight and value is quite unique in the Australian marketplace.
With 45g of 800FP goose down, the Superior Down Jacket is ideal for Australian conditions. It's warm enough for outback hikes or winter casual wear but stows away small enough to be conveniently carried when not in use.
The Superior Down Jacket makes use of lightweight, value for money stitch-through construction and the baffle size is carefully optimized to maximize loft. If the baffles are too narrow, the loft is restricted and the jacket is less warm. If the baffles are too large, down shifts, opening up cold spots. This balance achieves an excellent warmth to weight and provides greater protection from the wind.
The fabric is thin and light yet deceptively strong. Ballistic Airlight Ripstop Nylon is three times more tear resistant than a regular nylon 20% heavier. It feels light and soft to the touch.
The Superior Down Jacket is a great down jacket for an Australian, as it is warm enough for winter conditions without being excessively bulky. It's perfect for travel too, as you can carry it on to the plane in the December heat and be wearing it as you disembark at your ski destination.
