Down Vest – PHD Ultra Down Vest
For Alpine stuff we use PHD’s Ultra Down Vests. These are the best lightweight kit on the market.
These down vests are fantastically light at 150g made using their 900 fill-power down and rated to -5°C. Lightweight MX fabric inner and outer, with a full width front pocket, a small security pocket inside, short zip (pullover style) and a tiny-weeny pack size.
I just wouldn’t go to the Alps without mine, it really is the bees knees (all 6 of them)
