The Western Mountaineering Flight Jacket is a lightweight down jacket for insulating against the cold on adventures into the backcountry. The micro dot ripstop shell fabric is protective for the down yet light enough to keep you moving fast. Thick, large baffles have been stuffed with 850 plus fill power goose down with a fill weight of 4.5 ounces for just the right amount of puffiness, warmth, and packability. With a total weight of 11 ounces, you'll be cozy in the cold temps and when the day turns warm or you're not so high up in the mountains, you can take it off and pack it into a stuff sack for later, without taking up space or weighing down your pack.

Rated 5 out of
Highly recommended to supplement your day hike/ski or backpacking gear.Great lightweight warm jacket. Plan is to use this as a warm-up jacket for cross country skiing as well as a similar function for backpacking for evenings, mornings and other cold or windy spots on day or off-trail hikes. The one minus is the lack of a super light stuff sack, as none was provided with the jacket (it is an expensive that you want to make sure you take good care of it and requires a stuff sack). A lot warmer than my Mont-Bell down inner jacket but almost as light. <BR>Note we also have Western Mountaineering sleeping bags that are great for backpacking or trips where the nights are cold such as in the high Sierras or Alaska. We believe they make a great product.
