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.

StormRepel®

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 lightweight, high-performance piece that keeps me warm and dry on cold, windy and wet days. You don't generally want to be out in those conditions, but sometimes the mountains have other ideas. This jacket was made for those days. "
