The newest generation of our premium alpine down jacket, guide-built for climbing, mountaineering, and all cold-weather activities. Durable polyester shell with DWR finish to shed moisture. High-loft, moisture-resistant, 800 fill StormDown insulation for ultralight, ultrawarm, ultra-compressible comfort. Updates include an extra 1.5" in length, a drawcord waist to streamline the fit, and a new chest pocket with media port.

"The new Downlight is versatile, lightweight, and warm enough for most cold weather situations. The longer length and drawstring waist helps keep the warmth in and the cold out. The new handy chest pocket with audio port keeps your electronics close at hand and warm."

Glad to Have It!

Comments about First Ascent|Men|Jackets & Vests Men's Downlight StormDown Jacket:

I second the detailed comments by "Brad from Yukon" below. Like him, I'm somewhat tall & slim (6'1", 160 lbs) and the medium tall size fits me well. I've comfortably worn the jacket during the current Midwest cold spell (-6 as I write this) and have been comfortable walking outside for an hour in temps between 0 and 15. I give the jacket high marks in all categories, but can't yet comment about durability because I've only had it for a couple weeks. A great value at EB's periodic sale prices.

Thinnest 800-fill down coat ever. No better than a sweater

By yo

from New York

Comments about First Ascent|Men|Jackets & Vests Men's Downlight StormDown Jacket:

This coat is incredibly thin. No better than a sweater -- and completely ineffective outside in a 20-degree urban environment. What happened to EB's quality control? UGH.

Med Tall

By Brad

from Yukon

Comments about First Ascent|Men|Jackets & Vests Men's Downlight StormDown Jacket:

For reference, I'm 6'2 and wear a 15.5 dress shirt with longer 36" sleeves. 40" chest. 32" waist. Basically I'm a Medium Tall. I worried when I see the medium tall worked for my taller friend here at 6'5". For me, the sleeves are long enough that when I raise my arms and tech straight forward, they stay at the wrist without riding up. As such, they feel a little long when arms are at my side but the (maybe too loose) cuff keeps the sleeve from sliding down past my wrist. The length in the body is perfect. Just long enough to cover access to my pants pockets, and not ride up past my belt when I crouch down or bend over but not too long at all. Chest is good. Feels nice and fitted. I could wear a merino with wool midweight and a light mid layer underneath if required but nothing bulky. A regular hoody for instance would feel pretty compressed and unpleasant. You'll want merino wool and midweight fitted fleece or wool midlayer if you need extra heat.

I wear mine under an uninsulated goretex shell for rain and wind protection.
