Winner of Backpacker Magazine's 2012 Editors' Choice Snow Award

Warm, waterproof and rated to 20K/20K, this revolutionary down jacket provides full–on protection for mountain storms at a fraction of the expected weight. Breathable WeatherEdge® Pro technology utilizes our most technically advanced materials and construction for elevated activity in extreme conditions, and a new longer length prevents cold updrafts.

"This 800–fill down parka kept us toasty to about 15°F when we were on the move with only a light base layer underneath (and in colder temps when we supplemented with midlayers or were laboring under heavy packs.) But it also does what no other fully insulated jacket has been able to do successfully before: vent like mad when we're working hard."

WeatherEdge® Pro

The best weather protection. Lighter. Stronger. For strenuous activity in extreme conditions. The first number in its 20,000/20,000 rating is the waterproofness: The fabric can withstand 20,000 mm of water suspended over its surface before moisture seeps through. The second number shows its breathability: In 24 hours, it allows 20,000 grams of water vapor to escape per square meter of fabric.

MicroTherm Down

MicroTherm is First Ascent's lightest, warmest down construction, which pairs high quality 800 fill with some of the narrowest channel baffling in the outdoor industry.

The narrow-channel construction prevents down migration and keeps the fill more evenly distributed throughout the garment—minimizing the cold spots and filling voids that could allow body heat to escape.

This elevates the overall thermal value of MicroTherm to an extremely high degree, meaning more warmth for the same weight, reducing overall bulk and allowing for easier layering as well as greater packability.

We like to emphasize it's the warmest, lightest down we've ever made.


Our durable water-repellent (DWR) finish causes moisture to bead up on the surface so it rolls off or evaporates rather than soaking into the fabric.

"A perfect combination of warmth and protection that weighs almost nothing. This jacket thrives in the wind and cold. Bring it on! "

BC MicroTherm™ Down Jacket 2.0 - GreenDue to overwhelming popularity and customer response, we have refined our alpine guide team's favorite piece for Fall 2012! With an improved fit, one-inch longer, reduced lift during activity and lighter trims to maximize packable efficiency, this groundbreaking jacket combines the microchannel construction of the MicroTherm™ Down Shirt into the lining of this fully waterproof and breathable shell rated to 20K/20K. We’ve built a warm, insulated jacket that is lighter than most non-insulated shells on the market. This jacket is built to be the minimalist, lightweight piece that our First Ascent guide team requires in the most challenging environments where every ounce counts. Highly packable. Two large cross-body vents double as pockets. Harness friendly design. Across the board, this piece was the alpine guides’ personal favorite, hands down. Eddie Bauer - EST. 19205.0
