The Mirage is a warm down jacket that uses 160g of quality 900 fill power down. With box wall construction and high quality down this is an impressive insulated jacket.
This is no illusion. Made with 7-denier Ballistic Airlight nylon and full Box Construction this ultra-lighter's dream is packed full of high lofting 900 fill power down and offers an unsurpassed warmth to weight ratio. With insulation accounting for over 40% of the garment weight the Mirage Parka feels like you're wearing next to nothing, except maybe a shroud of pure warmth! Revised for Fall/Winter 2019, we've received years of feedback on this classic Montbell piece and have added even more premium goose down and set our sights on perfectly sculpting each baffle to optimize the thermal benefits of the Mirage Parka. These revisions are aimed at reducing down migration and developing cold spots.
Montbell's Mirage Down Parka is a brilliant jacket that is extremely light and easy to wear. It is every bit as warm as you'd expect from a jacket with 900 fill power down in it. The combination of 160g of 900 FP down and box wall construction are excellent indicators of outstanding quality and performance. The use of 7D fabric for the outer helps keep the weight below 400g and allowing it to compress down really well.
It fits really nicely, though the size is perhaps a little on the smaller size compared to some brands but it doesn't compromise on length, and although the appearance looks quite chunky, it fits snugly. The hood has side adjusters to pull it down, yet keeping the wired top section of the hood flat, this combined with a velcro tab on the back of the hood makes for a very adaptable fit. Perfect for cold dry weather.

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.
