The Mountain Equipment Vega Jacket is a seriously warm yet lightweight down jacket, making it ideal as a winter belay jacket as it is easily compressible. The outer fabric is Mountain Equipment's own Drilite Loft fabric which has been specially designed for use in their down jackets and provides a high level of water resistance with total windproof protection. The 800 fill power Goose Down is contained in stitched through baffle construction throughout the jacket. The down is distributed in differing fill weights in each baffle providing warmth in precisely the right places.
The Vega features a Half Dome helmet compatible hood so you can really hunker down when on those windy belays and it features EXL lining giving the hood a precise and fully protective fit. The Two-way YKK moulded front zip is durable and smooth running and features an offset insulated baffle to keep your core warm. Two zipped hand pockets with moulded zips provide storage for close to hand items and to keep your hands warm when required. With adjustable cuffs and dual tether hem drawcords this ensures you can prevent draughts.
The Vega Jacket features ME's Active Alpine Fit, providing excellent wearer comfort whilst retaining a slightly closer fit. If you're after a properly warm belay jacket for fast and light missions then the Vega Jacket is a great choice.

I used this for summits in Monte Rosa and Chamonix area. Durable (despite falls on glacier). Warm - kept cold out at 4600m but excellent breathability. Practical - packs small and has just enough pockets in the right place. Large hood - toggles at back rather than front which is my only gripe.
