Cross-country skiing, alpine ascents, Lakeland mountain marathons, adventure biking… You’re moving fast and light, you want to be warm, but you want unrestricted movement and a lightweight pack too.

Designed to give you the warmth of the Filoment Hoody in a stripped-down package for moving fast and light. We’ve achieved this by taking the arms off, we’re sure you’ll agree it was very effective.

Horizontal micro-baffles prevent cold spots caused by down migration, whilst an insulated zip baffle, a chin guard, and an adjustable hem drawcord shuts out pesky draughts. Soft hand-warmer pockets keep your fingers toasty.

We make our down jackets to last by using Nikwax Hydrophobic down. Filoment’s durable polyester outer is DWR coated, helping to shed moisture.

With a tiny packed-size, Filoment stows away easily and lofts effortlessly.


Nikwax Hydrophobic is a water repellent treatment that makes down less susceptible to humid conditions, staying lofted for longer and prolonging the overall lifespan of your down.


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 know.
