Our classic lightweight down jacket has been updated. With a fresh design aesthetic and 100% recycled fabric and down insulation, the highly packable Microlight Alpine Jacket is the go-to system for rapid warmth when the temperature drops.

The redesigned Microlight Alpine Jacket takes the versatile, easy-pack established classic and dials in some intelligent upgrades. It features a combination of zoned micro and nano baffles to increase core warmth without inflating weight or bulk. With a 30D recycled Pertex® Quantum ripstop outer and 100% recycled, 700FP, hydrophobic down, the Microlight Alpine Jacket now treads a little lighter on the planet. Practical and stylish, both as an everyday jacket and as a mountain layer, it has three harness-compatible pockets, an easy-carry stuff sack and a down-filled hood with stiffened peak.

With its refined style, improved down distribution, technical features and lower impact than its predecessor, the Microlight Alpine Jacket is the definitive multi-purpose down jacket.
