The Featherlite Down Jacket is designed to offer reliable protection and warmth in the mountains, all year round. Wear it as a super warm midlayer in cold winter conditions, or as a mid-weight outer layer on cool spring/autumn evenings. 

The key to this lightweight yet packable warmth is the insulation Montane use. 140g of super high quality 750 fill power duck down is used throughout the jacket to ensure the highest levels of warmth comparative to the weight and pack size. Not only is down one of the lightest forms of insulation available, but one of the most compressible too, allowing the Featherlite to stuff into it's own hand pocket. This down is then coated in HyperDry, a water repellent, flurocarbon-free treatment which reduces the amount of time the down takes to dry if it happens to get wet, increases the loft of the down and allows it to deal with moisture more efficiently when sweating. As if all of that wasn't enough to keep you warm and satisfied, Montane only use R.D.S (responsible down standard) certified down, and Track My Down to allow you to track the content of your jacket back to the original source. 

Further contributing to the low weight of this jacket is a lightweight Pertex Quantum outer fabric which offers a degree of water resistance (not waterproof), and wind resistancy. The great thing about this fabric is that although it is not water or windproof, it is far more breathable than a fabric that is, making it perfect for those who are frequently changing intensity. 

Other features on the Featherlite include a total weight of just 470g, an included stuffsack, two handwarmer pockets, a chest pocket, an internal pocket (perfect for a phone), a technical three-way adjustable hood to offer increased warmth and protection when stationary, articulated arms for an increased range of motion when climbing or mountaineering, and lastly a front zip with an internal baffle cover to reduce heat loss. 

The Featherlite Down Jacket is perfect for those who are frequently in the mountains, whether it's in the depths of winter or during a dry, cool evening in autumn. Despite its mountain heritage, it will work perfectly for walking, trekking and everyday use thanks to the excellent fit and large array of pockets.

Care & Advice

How to wash your down products

Having spent years talking to people about down products, whether that’s a jacket, sleeping bag or even a pair of slippers, very few have had the confidence to go ahead and wash the product on their own, especially when they have just spent an arm and a leg on it. This small guide is here to explain that it’s not as daunting and utterly terrifying as it first appears.

Step one: Before you even get near that washing machine, wipe off any excess mud or dirt that may be lingering on the surface of the jacket, as this will clog up the washing machine, eventually rendering it useless.

We recommend the use of Nikwax Down Wash Direct for down products as it’s one hundred percent environmentally friendly and will wash and re-proof the garment without the use of bleach or any other nasty chemicals. What household washing agents can (and often do) is remove the water repellent coating on the fabric of the jacket, whilst also damaging the delicate array of feathers inside.

Step two: We’ll assume in this instance that you’ve been washing other products prior to your down jacket and have used a bleach based detergent. Therefore it’s a good idea to run the washing machine for half an hour or so without anything inside to rinse it clean before adding the Nikwax or putting the jacket in. Also, don’t forget to remove the detergent drawer to give it a wash inside, outside and behind, as detergent can clog up and still enter the washing machine if not cleaned out thoroughly. This ensures that any remnants of detergent are removed and that the Nikwax products will work effectively.

Step three: Set the washing machine to a cold wash (check the garments care label, most tend to be around 30°C) and as delicate as possible. Most washing machines have a “wool” cycle which is ideal.

Step four: If using Nikwax Down Wash Direct, place 100ml in either the tray or directly into the washing machine inside a small pot/ball. If you choose to use another washing product, place the appropriate amount in the machine in the same way.

Step five: Set the washing machine to run on a slow cycle, allowing plenty of time for the jacket to soak up the cleaning/re-proofing product. Most washing machines will have a pre-set time for different washing cycles.

When the cycle has finished be prepared for a shock, your precious bit of kit will come out looking like a soggy ball of material. But don’t worry, you haven’t ruined it, it’s just that all that fluffy down insulation has become water logged and has clumped together. The trick is to now get all that down nice and dry to reinstate its superb insulating properties. Simply hanging it up in a warm place will not work that well. It will take days to properly dry and you will have to constantly break up the clumps to get it thoroughly dry. The best way is to use a tumble dryer; either a domestic one for smaller items or a commercial drier for sleeping bags.

Step six: Pop the garment into the dryer and make sure to select a low heat; a high heat runs the risk of melting seams and fabrics within the garment. It sounds weird, but shove a few tennis balls into the drier with the garment; the tennis balls will bounce around and help to break up the clumps of down. Every 20 minutes, pull the jacket out of the dryer and lie the jacket down on a table. Run your hands over the jacket until you find a 'clump' or ball of down; tease apart this down clump and spread it evenly into the baffle. Once you're confident you've pulled apart every clump to the best of your ability, stick it back in for another 20 minutes. Keep repeating this until there are no more clumps left. 

Step seven: When the cycle has finished and you are sure that you have got the garment as dry as possible, hang it up in a warm dry place, an airing cupboard is ideal, for 24 hours. This drives out the last of any dampness and allows the down to loft fully. Take it out and give it a good shake and, hey presto, it’ll be as good as new.

Montane Mens Featherlite Down Jacket Alpine

Would you like to see the special offer we have for you?

 

   

The whole ordering and delivery process went very smoothly but unfortunately the boots I had ordered were slightly too narrow and had to be returned, the no quibbles returns process was quick and easy, with Trekitt keeping me informed by email at every step of the way, including receipt of my parcel and when my refund had been processed. Service and communication with this company always excellent.
