The Patagonia Women's Lightweight Fiona Down Parka saves you a few ounces when weight matters. It's the perfect just in case jacket for your mid winter getaway to Santa Feit's compressible enough to pack into your bag in case the high desert weather gets extra chilly, or into your carryon in case you miss your connection to Albuquerque and need something to snuggle under during the long wait at the gate. Lightweight yet rugged 1. 1 ounce nylon ripstop treated with a DWR finish lets the drizzles and flurries roll off your back like water off a, um, duck. The 600 fill Traceable duck down insulation warms your body by preventing hot air from escaping. It also warms your heart since every last feather came from a well treated duck, who was neither force fed nor live plucked. When you wear this hooded honey with its slim lines and sleek fabric, you turn into a highly polished fashionplate of winter warmth.
