The Superior Down series from Montbell includes a number of modern classics. The combination of low weight, amazingly small pack size and relative warmth are seriously impressive.
The revolution continues. Montbell forever changed the landscape of the backcountry apparel world with the North American introduction of the UL Down Inner Jacket in 2004. Meticulous refinement over the last decade has led to our new Superior Down Series! This growing family of products deftly balances the characteristics that define reliable ultra-light apparel. Light in weight and highly compressible these garments travel well, but when needed are transformed into lofty down sweaters of surprising warmth. Prized by budget conscious backcountry enthusiasts around the world, the Superior Down Series is “what you need” when a versatile warm layer is critical, minimal weight is paramount, and space in your pack is at a premium.
Montbell's Superior Down Jacket combines high quality, lightweight outer fabric with 55g of 800 fill power down to give you an impressive weight to warmth ratio. Despite weighing in at a lightweight 208g, this jacket still has two decent sized zip hand pockets, a chest pocket and draw cords for adjusting the hem. A stuff sack is included but more often than not it gets stuffed straight into a small pocket in my pack.
The feel of the outer fabric is nice and soft so whether you're throwing it on when stopping for a break or keeping the chill out at camp this is a nice piece to wear. Overall it is an impressive package which, when combined with the price makes it an excellent option for anyone after good value for a top quality down jacket.
