Alpine Light Down Series garments are our range of highly functional mid-layers with excellent warmth-to-weight ratios and superb compressibility. The secret to the warmth of these garments lies not only in their high-lofting 800 fill power goose down, but in the wind shedding properties of their 20-denier Ballistic Nylon face fabric. By blocking a large percentage of wind, the light weight down layer is better able to conserve the heat your body naturally produces. Quality construction, an excellent warmth-to-weight ratio, and dollar-to-weight ratio make the Alpine Light Down Series and excellent choice for cold weather adventures.

Down Sourcing

ecinfo_001_00103.jpg

At Montbell, we source down from both the European and Asian markets to satisfy a variety of characteristics (supply/availability, low cost, consistent quality, humane practices, etc.) and maintain our lofty standards. Every season we seek to balance the superior quality for which we are known and the lowest possible raw materials cost. We change down sourcing companies frequently to insure that our customers have access to superior products at the lowest price possible. In the course of these efforts, Montbell never purchases down from operations that practice “live-plucking” methods. We only utilize down plumes and feathers collected as a by-product of water fowl raised to meet the demands of the food industry.

We will continue to look for sources of down that maximize value to our customers and allow Montbell products to perform at the highest level.

800 Fill Power Down

ecinfo_001_00067.jpg

Fill power (or loftiness) refers to the volume in cubic inches that 1 ounce of down will displace. The higher the fill power, the less down is needed to achieve a given thermal profile. All other things being equal (fabric, construction method, and fill amount), a jacket made with high fill power down (1000) is lighter and more compressible than an equally warm one made with lower quality down (550).
