The Mountain Equipment Women's Arete Hooded Jacket is a lightweight down jacket with a tiny pack size perfect for rock climbers and alpinists. 101g (size 12) of 700FP down is contained in stitched through narrow baffles within an the super lightweight Helium 20 outer fabric. The jacket has been cut a little longer to provide just a bit of extra coverage - ideal when reaching. Plus the down is water resistant so you don't need to worry about a little bit of damp.
The whole of the Women's Arete Jacket will pack into its own pocket which is complete with a carabiner clip so you can attach it to your harness. Lycra bound hood and cuffs keep tight to your helmet/head and wrists so cold draughts don't get in and there are 2 hand warmer pockets for storage and, well, warming your hands in.
WR Down is down which has been treated with a water repellent Teflon treatment. This means that it will resist moisture and dry faster. It does not make the down waterproof, but it will mean that it performs better in damp conditions as it won't lose as much loft. For more information on down please click here.
