What the Reviewers Said
"The price is exceptional for what you get, as this is an 850 fill power down with a Pertex Quantum shell, which makes it very lightweight...Many winter walkers need a cosy layer they can stash in their packs and throw on as needed, and this jacket fulfils that brief well. It uses 850+ fill power down so it is reasonably warm, but it is also exceptionally light as this is combined with a Pertex Quantum shell. The hood has drawcords, and you get two zipped pockets...It feels very comfortable. Down does provide good insulation without obvious cold spots and it is certainly suitable for general winter use by walkers and campers..."Specialist kit for the keener mountain goer. Exceptionally light and well-priced.Ē Graham Thompson, Gear Editor, Trail Magazine.
"The jacket is lovely to wear, being very soft and flexible. Itís very warm for the weight too. Iíve worn it standing around on windy days with sub-zero temperatures and stayed comfortable...Overall I found the Activity Jacket excellent. I think it would be an especially good choice for backpacking due to the low weight and packed bulk. Iíd use it as an autumn to spring jacket but those who run cold might like it for cool evenings in summer too." Chris Townsend, Outdoor Gear Editor, The Great Outdoors.
"Itís an ideal choice for cold, dry, alpine-style conditions where youíre counting the grammes...Light, small-packing, top-notch fabrics, high fill-power Polish goose down, good warmth to weight ratio, packs into inside pocket, helmet compatible, adjustable hood...Thereís no doubting the quality of the Pertex lightweight fabrics and 850+ fill power Polish goose down and we canít fault packability or warmth to weight ratio. The jacket has a silky light and warm feel to it...The Activity Jacket is a souped-up, old school down lightweight.Ē John Doran, Gear Editor, Outdoors Magic
