James was able to test the First Ascent Downlight sweater on a 8 day expedition into the Wind River Range. He wore it while training on Mammoth Glacier.
Some of the the highlights that he likes are
- DWR Finish
- 800 Fill Goose Down
- Weights in under a pound
- Packs into its own pocket
This is a great mid layer to put under a hard shell or worn alone around camp and in town. The quality of this jacket really shines in the attention to details with the zippers and cuffs. It also makes a great pillow while sleeping in the back country.
It retails for $199
