Description:

A lightweight hooded down jacket is an essential for most adventurers, but many are simply not up to the job when conditions worsen. The Hercules represents an upgrade to the standard lightweight in every way: design, features, manufacturing quality, performance, fit, comfort and appearance.

The distance between the Hercules' baffles is wider than those of a typical ultra-light jacket, allowing space for more down to achieve more loft. More loft generates more warmth but it also provides increased resilience against moisture. The performance fit allows efficient layering whilst creating an athletic look.

The 100% recycled ripstop fabric contributes not just superior abrasion resistance but also superior comfort next to the skin unlike standard nylon. Low-tensile elasticated webbing on the hem and hood provide grip, eliminating the need for draw cords. The distinctive baffles and Italian made quality complete the appeal of this adventure staple.
