What is the Phoenix Flight?

The Phoenix Flight jacket is an incredibly breathable, flexible, lightweight and versatile insulative layer for moving quickly in mountainous environments. Whether you're climbing, mountaineering, walking or trekking, the Phoenix will find its way into your layering system somehow.

What is it made of?

Insulation: Taking care of the insulation inside the Phoenix is 120g of Primaloft Thermoplume. Don't be ashamed if you haven't heard of it before, we hadn't either! This brand new form of insulation from Primaloft is a jump forward in terms of synthetic insulation. It essentially copies the shape of down but uses synthetic fabrics, meaning it retains almost the same compressibility, feel and loft as down but with the added benefit of performing well in damp conditions. All of this insulation is stored in micro-baffles to allow the jacket to pack down nice and small whilst offering bucket loads of warmth. 

Outer fabric: Montane surround this insulation with two fabrics, so lets start with the main one - Featherlite Mini Rip-stop 20D. This tough yet lightweight fabric protects the insulation inside, yet packs down to a fraction of its original size. A durable water repellent coating has been applied to the outer of this fabric to ensure light rain beads off the surface. Please note, you'll still need to pack a shell for when the weather gets really gnarly! The second fabric used is a super stretchy, lightweight and breathable Thermo Stretch Pro fleece. This fleece is used down the sides of the jacket and over the shoulders (where you naturally require less warmth); this allows your heat to escape when you're working hard.

What are the features?

Starting at the top, an insulated hood fits snug to your head and features an elastic brim around your face to seal in the warmth. This hood is designed to fit under a helmet when belaying or climbing. Moving down, you get articulated arms to prevent the dreaded 'hem lift' when reaching above your head, a zipped internal chest pocket for a phone or snacks, two zipped hand pockets, pre-elasticated cuffs and lastly an adjustable hem with a drawcord. 

How does it fit?

The Phoenix features a slim, tapered fit with an average length, however due to its stretchy nature it will accomodate a range of shapes and sizes. The stretchy fabric over the rear of the shoulders allows a full range of motion if you're climbing or mountaineering, while the articulation in the arms increases comfort even further. 

Where does it fit in the layering system?

This versatile piece can either be used as a warm midlayer with a shell over the top in wet and windy conditions, or it can be used on its own when moving fast in cold, dry conditions.

Care & Advice

How Should Your Insulated Jacket Fit?

Insulated jackets are pedantic little things. Too tight and you'll compress the insulation and limit the warmth capabilities of your brand new jacket, too loose and you'll spend hours warming up the dead space inside the jacket. Getting the correct fit isn't just about aesthetics, it will determine how warm you are. 

The Incorrect Fit

Too loose: A jacket which is too loose will keep you relatively warm, however it will take far longer to do so and will waste large amounts of your precious energy. An insulated jacket works by trapping the natural heat that your body gives off in the fibres of the insulation; this creates a micro-climate inside your jacket, keeping you warm and toasty. If your jacket is too loose, heat will be able to escape through the hem, the sleeves and the neck of the jacket; it's a little like sticking the heating on in your car with the windows cracked open - it will heat up, just incredibly slowly.   

Too tight: A jacket which is too tight is arguably worse than one that is too loose. If your jacket is far too tight, the baffles can compress to a point where the insulation can't loft effectively, limiting the amount of warmth it can trap. Essentially, it won't work! 

The Correct Fit
It's a tricky one to explain, but it's somewhere in the middle. You've first got to consider how many layers you'll tend to wear underneath; will you have just a t-shirt then the jacket, or possibly a baselayer, midlayer and then the jacket? When you've figured out your layers and you've popped your insulated jacket over the top, you shouldn't have any dead space inside. The cuffs and hem should be comfortably sealed around your waist and wrists with room to move. You should be able to lift an arm up above your head without the hem of the jacket lifting more than an inch or so, and the sleeves should be long enough that when carrying out the same motion, they aren't mid-way up your forearm. Your shoulders and chest area should have enough room so that your hands can touch behind your back without feeling restricted. 

Additional Information
Lastly, consider which activites you'll primarily be carrying out while wearing the jacket. Are you primarily using it as a winter climbing piece, or an everyday/dog walking jacket? You'll find that technical climbing jackets tend to feature a shorter cut, while urban and casual jackets feature a longer cut to offer additional warmth with less mobility.

The product I bought was competitively priced. The video demonstration of the product assisted me in my decision to purchase the item and was very informative, as it showed all of the features and the fit. I chose "click and collect" which was an efficient and quick process. I would definitely shop here again.
