Whether in search of a cold weather camp jacket or a simple, yet reliable belay piece the warmth provided by box construction is a must! Normally used in the production of sleeping bags, this method minimizes heat loss from seam lines. The Frost Line Parka makes an exceptional insulating layer for those that prefer the solitude and challenge of winter activity at altitude. A helmet compatible hood, adjustable alpine cuffs, and hem draw cord allow you to fine tune the fit. Articulated arms and slightly over-sized with a longer torso this "all mountain" parka is cut for layering and appropriate from late fall to early spring.

800 Fill Power Down

Fill power (or loftiness) refers to the volume in cubic inches that 1 ounce of down will displace. The higher the fill power, the less down is needed to achieve a given thermal profile. All other things being equal (fabric, construction method, and fill amount), a jacket made with high fill power down (1000) is lighter and more compressible than an equally warm one made with lower quality down (650).

BOX CONSTRUCTION

Eliminates cold spots resulting from sewn-through seams and allows down to loft completely.

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.
