The Hercules Ultralight Hooded Down Jacket is Shackleton’s year-round go-to. 

The lightweight insulation is provided by its 800-fill power RDS-certified goose down and warmth is further retained by the base drawcord and high neck baffle design. The highly durable outer shell is engineered from 100% recycled soft-touch micro-ripstop. The use of Pertex® offers lightweight performance and breathability, with incredible sustainability credentials.

The baffle construction has been carefully optimised to ensure maximum warmth to weight ratio, reducing cold spots and delivering insulation where it is most required. As a result, the Hercules has a distinctive design with a performance fit to enable efficient layering. The fully adjustable hood with reinforced peak and microfleece chin guard delivers highly effective comfort and protection from the weather. Two large microfleece-lined external pockets and an internal security pocket makes this a highly practical lightweight essential for all seasons.
