Mountaineering provides a unique set of challenges, and your gear has to be as up for it as you are. Millet's LD Absolute Women's Down Jacket is always ready for adventure, and it revels in cold, soggy, and rugged mountain weather. Millet lined this heavyweight alpine puffy with 700 fill K Dry down, which has been treated to be highly water repellent, so sudden squalls and blowing snow won't compromise your warmth. The Pertex Endurance fabric, which is superlight and exceptionally tough, has also been treated with a water repelling DWR coating to help you stay dry, comfortable, and focused. The adjustable hood seals up tightly over a helmet to provide serious protection from mountain gusts and penetrating cold, and the drawcord hem and hook and loop cuffs prevent drafts from sapping your hard earned warmth and chilling you to the bone. Millet even ships the Absolute with a compression bag, so you can squish it down for easy packing and traveling, which makes a difference when you're heading to the ends of the Earth in search of adventure.
