Men's Lightweight Down Gilet

VERSATILE HYDROPHOBIC GOOSE DOWN GILET

Newly upgraded for 2024. Asta is a lightweight goose down gilet for flexibility on the mountain and everyday wear in the valley.

The Asta is filled with 850 Fill Power goose down, in a premium 93/7 down/feather ratio, giving an exceptional warmth-to-weight ratio. A water repellent rip-stop face fabric resists the wet and blocks the wind. Synthetic insulation in the collar and shoulders resists moisture further and prevents down migration and flattening under pack straps.

Our water-repellent down from DownTek™ stays dry 10x longer than untreated down. Unlike inferior versions, our water repellency won’t wash out and is free from harmful fluorocarbons. Our ethical approach to down sourcing complies with the Responsible Down Standard.

A multi-use piece; wear under a shell as a minimalist mid layer for core warmth, or as a standalone. Upgraded for 2024 with a cleaner aesthetic and improved performance fit.
