When it's no longer cool, it's downright cold, you want our Flight Lite down hoody.
Our Flight Lite hoody will put the warmth back in your smile. And it's light, just over a pound (½ kg) to keep the cold at bay.
Our most popular down jacket for alpine ascents has a shorter length to work with a harness. A strip of tougher material on the draft tube protects against getting caught in the zipper. Quilted baffles with a tight construction are filled with 700+ fill power goose down for more uniform loft and better compressibility. To prevent the down shifting, vertical baffle walls are added in the sleeves. Articulated arms enhance range of motion, and elastic cuffs seal in warmth. The hood has a high internal collar with drawcords around your face and behind your head. Four zippered pockets adorn the jacket, along with two pack-compatible hand pockets on the sides, an internal and external chest pocket, and two interior cargo pockets.

"Though it appears high volume when I’m wearing it, it packed down into my day pack easily, leaving plenty of room for snacks, water, and other necessities...Few jackets that I’ve worn have had such easy-to-use zips."
"I have never been a fan of the cold, but for the first time in my life, I am sad to have to put my coats away for the summer...Not only did I get compliments on the jackets, I never complained about being cold while wearing them!"

I have never been a fan of the cold, but for the first time in my life, I am sad to have to put my coats away for the summer. .. Not only did I get compliments on the jackets each time I wore one, but I never complained about being cold while wearing them! One critique about the pockets is that the two chest pockets are on the same side of the jacket. If using both pockets at the same time, this could look awkward and bulky. The cargo pockets are my favorite!
I climbed in Southern Patagonia wearing this jacket. I was too cold to take it off and ended up climbing with it on. Worried at first but ultimately impressed how it held up. Patagonia granite is notorious for being sharp and shredding ropes and clothing alike. The reinforced shoulders and sleeves truly held up. Not a single rip in the jacket! Like it!
My wife loves the coat but has had trouble with the front zipper & it is not even a month old!
