Mountain Equipment Lightline Down Jacket

The Mountain Equipment Lightline Jacket is the iconic down jacket from the Mountain Equipment line up of duvets. Its technical cut has a longer body length compared to a lot of other down jackets which allows good movement and better weather protection.

The outer Drilite Loft has a highly water resistant finish and is totally windproof and because it's light it allows the down to loft fully. Inside 296g of 675 fill power (EU) 90/10 pure down ensure the Lightline will keep you warm in all conditions. The hood is made up of 3 panels ensuring an exceptional fit without compromising protection. This is the perfect technical down jacket for Scottish winter and alpine summer use as well as for high altitude exploration in the marine climates of the Americas. The ME Lightline jackets (men's and women's) are their best selling down garments and have been so for many years.

The jacket fit is great for slimmer people as it hugs the body nicely and reduces the effect of that puffy/fat look that many down jackets have. Although not my warmest (it is still quite warm) it has become my favourite and go to jacket for the city on cold days due to the fit and comfort. It is a pity it does not have a chest pocket as that would be useful for travel. The hand warmer pockets are very warm though. I would definitely recommend the jacket, although there are warmer jackets available if that is your primary need.

Reviewer: Anonymous,  

I've always been a fan of layering, and, however misguidedly, have always been wary of these large duvet style down jackets. I was worried about how they would hold up in damp or wet conditions, and I was worried that they may also prove to be too hot in all but the most extreme UK temps. I also didn't want to look like the michelin man...

But the ME Lightline answered all my questions. The DWR coating sheds light precip brilliantly, meaning I don't need to take out a shell at the slightest sign of water. It's also slim fitting (for a down jacket), meaning putting a shell over the top isn't an issue when the heavens do open.

I've also not found it to be too warm around town, and its warmth is extremely appreciated in the hills. The front opening, and ability to remove the hood, mean you can actually regulate your temperature a fair bit. Packs down small and the warmth to weight ratio is fantastic.

Couldn't be happier.

First ME jacket I have purchased - definitely a notch up from my previous insulated jackets. Love the cosy feel & the slightly longer fitted look. Just used for general winter use but specifically didn't want a jacket that was too light in weight & this is perfect. The detachable hood is handy whilst the pockets are really snug. Also does a fine job in wet conditions due to the water resistant fabric. An outside pocket for iPhone would have been a nice addition but all in all a top quality purchase.

Purchased after borrowing a shot of one when I was caught out whilst visiting friends on the West coast of Scotland.

The weight is good and can be compressed to a reasonable size for packing. The jacket provides good maneuverability and I didn't feel like the Michelin man, which is the impression down jackets can sometimes leave.

I was also impressed with the collar and hood which provides a snug fit on a cold breezy day. The colour combination was also a plus point along with the reasonable price.

Reviewer: Terry , West Handley, Marsh Lane  

An excellent, comfortable jacket, long enough at the back to provide proper warmth, but not too long if you're required to cover the whole jacket with a waterproof in the event of a deluge. The arms are the perfect length, with fastenings tight enough to exclude cold draughts.. I'm told the jacket looks smart and fashionable (not for me to comment), but I can say that the colour is certainly most attractive. I've always been reluctant to buy clothing on line, but the description provided by Facewest was accurate enough for this to have been an excellent purchase.
