Guide-built for cold-weather alpine climbing, this jacket is exceptionally warm, yet it's equally lightweight and packable. An ideal belay jacket, our guides depend on it for safety and comfort up high. Those qualities also make if perfect for travel in extreme cold. Thermally efficient, highly compressible, 800 fill StormDown maintains its insulating loft even in wet weather. Durable Pertex® ripstop nylon shell with StormRepel Super DWR finish that sheds moisture.

"This is a layer I've been missing, and it's extremely useful. It easily fits in a 40L pack with my full ski guide kit and doesn't add significant weight. I'll continue to use it as my go-to emergency layer and for breaks. I see it being a part of my guiding and personal kit throughout the winter."
—Erik Leidecker, Eddie Bauer Ski Guide
After testing the Downlight Alpine while guiding backcountry skiing in Sun Valley, Idaho

      This down jacket/parka is super-warm while remaining reasonably packable. Its a notch warmer than the classic Downlight Storm Down. Use it as an outer layer in cold, dry conditions, or to layer under a burly shell like the Duraweave Alpine Jacket to confront the nastiest alpine conditions you can find. I recommend a small stuff sack if bringing it in your backpack. Top of the line technical down insulation.

      Well Done

      Comments about First Ascent|Men|Jackets & Vests Men's DownLight Alpine Jacket:

      Got this cozy warm extra length jacket on sale - tremendous value. Love the Velcro cuffs and drawstring at the bottom. The generous yet adjustable hood really adds a lot of warm on those really cold Nasty days.
      Where I'm from -20 is common and -30 not unusual in the Winter - this jacket handles the deep freeze no problem.
      I haven't put it into action in any wet conditions, so not sure yet about the storm proofness.

      So far, I give the Downlite a lofty 4.5 out of 5

      I wish I had read the comments below about the feathers showing throw. Online the orange color looks amazing and even when I first opened the box and pulled it out it looked good, however, after further evaluation it does look dirty which is a shame for the price.

        Comments about First Ascent|Men|Jackets & Vests Men's DownLight Alpine Jacket:

        We bought this jacket for a ski trip last winter. We chose the orange color for better visibility on the slopes, and it was great. The style looks good, the jacket feels good and keeps you incredibly warm, even when the jacket gets wet from the melting snow. The problem with this jacket is that the inner lining is very dark, so the jacket looks really dirty along the seams, and in any areas where the down is not quite as thick. The appearance becomes exponentially worse when wet, to the point that it almost appears that the jacket is moldy. It's just due to the black lining showing through. My wife got the same jacket in the Poppy color, and hers has a light gray lining instead, which seems to eliminate most of the issue, although some dark feathers still show through when damp. We both love the comfort and warmth, but it's disappointing to have a jacket that looks dirty for this price.
