The Agner Hybrid Down Jacket is a hybrid insulating layer for alpine climbing where intense guidance is often preceded by long, cold belaying.
Salewa designers use body mapping to accurately match design and materials to the body's ability to isolate and manage both flash cooling during static periods and overheating during activity. The resulting hybrid design provides heat only where you need it and eliminates unnecessary insulation.
The high-loft 90/10, 750 fill power down is located on the torso, back and shoulders only, while the flexible, lightweight, rock-resistant softshell is used in areas where climbers need more breathability and freedom of movement.
However, the real secret of the Agner Hybrid Down Jacket is that its down chambers are not sewn but joined together, and have laser-cut perforations between the baffles to allow active airflow to let excess body heat escape. The result is a super high heat-to-weight ratio and super low packability.
The Agner Hybrid Down Jacket also features a lightweight helmet hood for extra protection against the cold.
Lower arms, side panels, hem and hood are made of Salewa's next generation rock resistant 4-way stretch softshell fabric for the breathability and freedom of movement you need when climbing.
