Duck down jacket

Post by AgentSmith » Wed May 31, 2017 2:34 pm

Hi

I need some advice please?

I am looking to puchase a down jacket that is lightweight and highly effective with the cold. The intention is to use it for general use and next year plan to use it underneath my thermal jacket for hiking Kilimanjaro. I have been eyeing out the jackets that Cape Union Mart sell but before I spend that much money, are there any others (Perhaps better) that someone can suggest? ----> https://www.capeunionmart.co.za/k-way-b ... n-jkt-mens


Thanks

You can also look at the First Ascent Transit Down Jacket 650 fill, no hood or the Prana Lasser Jacket 650 fill with a hood.
Both are available at Mountain Mail Order. Here is the link if you want to check it out:

Alternatively, you can look at a synthetic jacket. What I personally like about them,is that synthetic will still keep you warm if it gets wet.
A nice option will be The North Face Thermoball.
