UOG TOP PICK - Montbell EX Light Down Anorak - Not quite the 1000+ Fill Power Down used in some other Montbell jackets but 900+ is extremely high quality and the EX Light Down Anorak doesn't have the same price tag. Montbell achieve a very low overall weight of jacket even though all the features are present and there's 85grams of down in it.
The Montbell EX Light series never fails to deliver and the Down Anroak is a continuation of that excellent form.
The EX Light products have always epitomized our minimalist design concepts. Ultra-light and space saving this garment provides the highly versatile sweater weight warmth critical to the ever growing population of gram counting trail demon. Mindful selection of premium materials has always made the EX Light Anorak a perfect replacement for heavier, bulky items that traditionally demand so much space in your pack. New for Fall/Winter 2019, we have outfitted the Anorak with a 2-way Adjustable Hood and a FULLY insulated tunnel pocket (yes, down on both side of your precious digits!). Increases in Fill Weight in concert with incremental improvement in baffle shape have produced greater loft and warmth. Functional in its purpose, versatile in its use, and with over 35% of the garment weight being premium quality down insulation this piece is a must for any well thought out layering system!
Montbell's EX Light Down Anorak is a premium quality down piece. The thought that has went into the baffle placement, down quality selection and the materials used in the construction jacket is second to none.
The 900 fill power down provides so much warmth while remaining lightweight and packable. While the 1/2 length zip provides ventilation while you're working up a sweat.
The adjustable hood provides a secure fit underneath a shell without interfering with vision. The finishing touch is the double insulated through pocket that provides insulation on both sides, with the waist adjustment being tucked inside here as to keep it from getting tangled up on other straps such as the hip belt.

At Montbell, we source down from both the European and Asian markets to satisfy a variety of characteristics (supply/availability, low cost, consistent quality, humane practices, etc.) and maintain our lofty standards. Every season we seek to balance the superior quality for which we are known and the lowest possible raw materials cost. We change down sourcing companies frequently to insure that our customers have access to superior products at the lowest price possible. In the course of these efforts, Montbell never purchases down from operations that practice “live-plucking” methods. We only utilize down plumes and feathers collected as a by-product of water fowl raised to meet the demands of the food industry.
We will continue to look for sources of down that maximize value to our customers and allow Montbell products to perform at the highest level.
