What is the Featherlite Down Jacket?

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. 

What is it made of?

Insulation: 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 effectively 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 allows you to trace the content of your jacket back to the original source. 

Outer fabric: 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. 

What are the features?

Features wise, you get 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. 

How does it fit?

The Featherlite features Montane's 'regular' fit. Essentially, it isn't baggy, it isn't tight, it sits perfectly in the middle. It's designed to be worn fairly snugly to prevent heat loss, however you can easily fit a midweight fleece underneath if you feel the cold. 

Where does it fit in the layering system?

The Featherlite can either be used as a heavyweight midlayer with a shell over the top in foul conditions, however it works just as effectively as a mid-weight outer layer in cold, dry conditions.

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.

"I first noticed Trekitt by their fantastic YouTube videos, which were very informative and honest. So I headed on over to the website and looked at various coats to try and determine which to go for. Being a bit of a muppet I didn't really have a clue what was best so contacted customer services who directed me to a few coats but said he would go away (over the weekend!) and think some more and get back to me Monday. I thought it was just a fob off as the conversation had been going a while but low and behold on Monday morning an email appears with suggestions! I was so pleasantly surprised that if I hadn't already been convinced to buy with them, it was concreted then. I bought 2 coats from them the same day and very shortly after they appeared. The fit was exactly as they had suggested it would be, the quality of the items was as described and I am very happy with them. In this day and age of large companies taking a backward step from customer service, it is such a breath of fresh air to be treated with such a personal touch. If I ever need anything outdoorsy, I know exactly where I'm going."
