Filoment Vest [Womens]RDS hydrophobic down gilet
Women's micro-rib hydrophobic down gilet for fast and light activities where you don’t want to constrict your arms
Filoment Vest [Womens] RDS hydrophobic down gilet
Our lightest insulated garment, partly because it has no arms but also because of the lightweight 20 denier polyester shell fabric and Nikwax hydrophobic down filling.
Ideal for fast and light activities where you don’t want to constrict your arm movements such as cross-country skiing, alpine ascents, mountain marathons, adventure biking and chopping wood. The Filoment vest is based on the same base design as our Filoment jacket, but has been trimmed down to provide warmth and comfort for your core body.
If you are wondering what has changed since last season read on:
Most importantly is the insulation. Filoment Vest is packed with Nikwax hydrophobic down for greater resistance in wet or damp conditions. Our down source is also RDS certified which gives greater reasurance it comes from a supplier with ethical standards which is commited to protecting the welfare of the birds. To make the most of this better insulation the baffles are larger, giving the down more room to loft meaning this years vest is significantly warmer.
The pockets now have a brushed lining for extra cosy-ness factor. A hem drawcord helps shut out draughts and provides better adjustability for different body shapes. The vest has all the same bits and bobs as the jacket; insulated zip baffles with chin guard to keep the wind out, hand warmer pockets, chin protector, snug lycra bound cuffs and an external zipped chest pocket.
Filoment Vest is highly compact so it can be stashed in your bag without taking too much space and with a DWR coating it will shrug off the occasional spray.
All the warmth and technical prestige of a microrib jacket in a mountain top.
