The Western Mountaineering Meltdown jacket is made with the finest 850+ fp goose down and a microfiber outer shell fabric, the Western Mountaineering Meltdown Jackets are a superior package of warmth and protection. Being lightweight, functional and made to last; the Western Mountaineering Meltdown jackets are made in Canada. Backpacker Magazine says: We can think of only one thing that can heat you up faster than this pound of down, but your honey can’t go everywhere you do. After 3 weeks on Denali with the Western Mountaineering Meltdown jacket, our tester praised the Western Mountaineering Meltdown jacket’s toasty details, like high-loft 850-fill-power down, a fat draft tube behind the zipper, extra down fill in the collar and pockets, and a two-way zipper for versatile venting. The hem drawcord kept breezes from sneaking in at the bottom, and the microfiber nylon shell never leaked a feather after weeks of hard-duty mountaineering. Bonus: An integral stuff sack (with drawcord) sewn into the liner makes it super quick to stuff. It’s a little pricier than some down jackets, but you’ll save money on cold medicine in the long run.
