This family of products continues to delicately balance the characteristics that define reliable ultra-light apparel. For example, the U.L. Down Jacket weighs less than most cotton T-shirts, blocks a deceptive amount of wind, while compressing to the size of a 32 ounce water bottle. Specifically designed as a replacement for the heavy and bulky fleece garments used by many backcountry enthusiasts, the U.L. Down Series is "what you need" when warmth is critical, minimal weight is paramount, and space in your pack is at a premium.

Goose and Duck Down Sourcing

ecinfo_001_00103.jpg

At Montbell, we source Down from both the European and Chinese markets to satisfy a variety of characteristics (supply/availability, low cost, consistent quality, humane practices, etc.) and maintain our lofty standards. Every season we seek to balance the superior quality for which we are known and the lowest possible raw materials cost. We change Down sourcing companies frequently to insure that our customers have access to superior products at the lowest price possible. In the course of these efforts, Montbell never purchases Down from operations that practice “live-plucking” methods. We only utilize Down plumes and feathers collected as a by-product of water fowl raised to meet the demands of the food industry.

We will continue to look for sources of Down that maximize value to our customers and allow Montbell products to perform at the highest level.

15-denier Ballistic Airlight Nylon

ecinfo_001_00016.jpg

15-denier Ballistic Airlight nylon is a calendered hollow fiber fabric ideal for use in high performance outdoor clothing. The calendering process makes a tightly woven lightweight fabric more fiber proof and wind resistant. To achieve these desired traits the fabric is run between heated rollers to flatten and “shingle” each fiber. Once a high grade DWR (durable water repellant) is applied the resulting fabric is highly resistant to the elements and incredibly strong for its weight.
