Live Your Adventure®

The newest generation of our premium alpine down vest, 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."
—Ed Viesturs, Eddie Bauer Alpine Climbing Guide

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

      I am 6'4" Tall 240 lbs. XL Tall fits perfectly for shoulder width and body length. Sleeves are very short however. Sometimes all you need is a vest over a flannel shirt maybe, or can be used in addition to a parker as an extra layer. I really like having one. Black is the color, goes with everything.
      I was kidding about the sleeves, I know it's a vest.

      Warm, light, and fits well. Works great over my base layer and/or light fleece. Fits under my shells. I have a lighter and a heavier fill vest as well. This one is my favorite.

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

      Trust the picture. This is not heavy down. I read that it had "800 fill" so I thought it would be a good amount of down, it is not. The picture is accurate. It is a moderate amount of down and the look is good. Would work well for work in an office or in the house where you need something for additional warmth. I needed something a bit heavier.
