The Mountain Equipment Arete Vest is perfect for insulating the core, lightweight and compressible making it suitable for climbing, alpinism or ski touring. Versatile too as can be utilised within your layering system or worn over the top.
The outer is constructed from a super light Helium fabric which contains the 700 Fill Power Water Resistant Pure Down within stitched through narrow baffles, offering the best warmth to weight ratio. The front YKK moulded zip features a protective insulated baffle. To keep the heat trapped around your core the arm holes are elasticated and the dual tether hem drawcords can be cinched up for maximum heat retention. One of the hand pockets acts as an integrated stuff sack so the vest will stow-away in it and with twin carabiner loops, it will convienently clip to your harness or pack for quick access without stopping.
