Mens Lightweight Down Jackets

Mens Lightweight Down Jackets are ideal for carrying in your backpack for extended hiking trips, or as a quick insulation layer to keep you warm after completing a sporting event.

The shell of these jackets is manufactured from ultralight down-proof mini ripstop fabric that is extremely breathable, windproof and water repellent*. Narrow baffles in the fabric are constructed using micro-stitch-through techniques to prevent down migration through the cottons and to provide excellent down stabilisation

All Sub Zero down jackets are filled with the finest grade of ethically sourced European hydrophobic goose down and feathers to a composition of 90/10. The durable water repellent (hydrophobic) treatment repels moisture, enabling the down to retain its loft in damp weather and to dry quicker when wet. With 750+ fill power and a total down content of 132g (large size), this makes these insulated down jackets one of the warmest in their class.

Two zipped hand warmer pockets and a zipped left hand chest pocket have textured pullers for better grip, whilst inside you will find a zipped mesh chest pocket and a elasticated storage pocket. The full length zip has a wide baffle on the reverse to protect against wind penetration as well as a micro fleece chin guard. All the zips used in these down jackets are supplied by YKK for unparalleled quality and reliability.

The fit is generous but not voluminous, allowing base layers and mid layers to be worn underneath when outdoors. Single handed operation drawstrings on either side of the body allows the wearer to fully adjust the hem of the jacket for a close fit, and the elasticated sleeve cuffs provide a snug fit on your wrists to prevent wind and cold penetration. A small back drop on the reverse provides lower back protection when sitting down, and reflective logos on the chest and the back neck increase your visibility. When not in use, these insulated down jackets can be packed down in to a compact stuff sack (included) for storage in a jacket pocket or rucksack.

* The micro ripstop shell fabric is waterproof but the stitching and zips are not, so water will eventually permeate through these areas.

Over laundering down filled garments will reduce their lifespan. Try wiping the jacket and body warmers with a cloth first if dirty. For wet items, a quick blast in a tumble dryer on a cool setting should suffice. If a full wash is required, then follow the directions below.

Washing instructions for Sub Zero lightweight down jackets and body warmers can be found on the white silk tag stitched to the inside seam of the garment. 

Please follow these instructions carefully as failure to comply with them will make your guarantee void. If you have removed the tag or are unsure of the washing symbol meaning, the full washing instructions can be found below.

  • Machine wash on a delicate/wool setting or hand wash in water not exceeding 30°C or 86°F
  • You can use a mild washing detergent but ideally you want to use a specific down washing treatment 
  • Wash dark colours separately, do not bleach, do not use fabric conditioners
  • These down jackets and body warmers can be spun dry in a washing machine. 
  • Cool tumble dry only. To reactivate the volume of the down after washing, they will need to be tumble dried on a low heat setting. Using tumble dryer balls will aid in the drying and restoration of the down loft.
  • Do not dry clean
  • Do not iron

 

GENERAL WASHING TIPS
When you go to wash any garment with a zip, ensure it is done up fully otherwise the exposed teeth may cause harm in the wash cycle. The same can be said for garments containing Velcro. Your best course of action would be to wash these garments either by hand or on their own in a washing machine.

With the advancement in detergent technology, you very rarely need to wash any garments these days above 30°C. It is better to use a specific anti-bacterial wash-in treatment rather than increasing the temperature.

A lot of Sub zero products, especially the base layers and mid layers, can be ironed on a low temperature setting. We would advise against this as the heat settings on irons are not always reliable. In any case, the stretch properties of synthetics helps reduce creases in the wash and if there are any afterwards, they often drop out when worn.

Like most synthetics, Sub Zero fabrics will melt or burn if exposed to flame or direct heat. They are not flame resistant; do not use them near ANY direct source of heat or flame. This includes some of our merino wool products that contain a small percentage of synthetic yarn.

All Sub Zero down jackets are filled with the finest grade of ethically sourced European hydrophobic goose down and feathers to a composition of 90/10. The durable water repellent (hydrophobic) treatment repels moisture, enabling the down to retain its loft in damp weather and to dry quicker when wet.

* The micro ripstop shell fabric is waterproof but the stitching and zips are not, so water will eventually permeate through these areas.
