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 DOWN
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.
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 know.
