Filoment Vest [Mens] Hydrophobic down vest
Light and packable 650 fill power duck down gilet that keeps your core insulated when weight and freedom of movement are your top priorities; with Downtek hydrophobic down
Bubble wrap bed? Check! Some form of Franken-tent? Check! For some adventures, we find all manner of bizarre hacks to keep the weight down.
Filoment vest provides the warmth of the Filoment jacket, targeted around your core. It leaves your arms unrestricted for moving quickly, packs down incredibly small, and layers well over a base layer or under a shell. That’s why it’s our first choice for any situation where a light, compact pack-size and freedom of movement are the top priority.
Narrow baffles give the Filoment vest a slim, active fit. It has a slightly dropped, adjustable hem at the back for good coverage and lycra bound armholes for freedom of movement.
Vests let you dump more heat than jackets. For a boost of warmth, you can bury your hands in the hand warmer pockets whilst the external zipped chest pocket takes care of your valuables. The zip baffle and chin guard keep draughts from finding their way in.
The outer fabric is a light yet durable 40gsm nylon with a DWR coating, well equipped to handle the demands of active use. The responsibly sourced 650FP down fill gives an excellent weight ratio. It’s also hydrophobic, so it retains loft in damp conditions and recovers better too.
DOWNTEK WATER REPELLENT DOWN
DownTek-treated down absorbs less water than untreated down. This means it retains its loft better in damp or humid conditions, dries quicker, and recovers better too, keeping you warmer in damp environments than untreated down. DownTek is environmentally safe - Bluesign approved, PFC, PFOA, and PFOS free – and uses only RDS certified down sources. Remember, it's better not to get your down wet – even hydrophobic down is no substitute for a waterproof shell!
RESPONSIBLE DOWN STANDARD
We use only RDS certified down; all our down is audited by a third party to ensure that it comes from birds who are not live-plucked, force-fed, or mistreated. That’s good to know.

Mmm like a hot chocolate
Light to the touch, light to pack, but a warm shield when on. I wore with an alpkit smock/wind shirt ( sorry forgot the name) and felt very comfortable in the autumn winds. I would wear skiing, hiking and down the pub.
