Alpkit Filoment Hoody Product News

Down vest, down jacket, 1/2 zip smock and now a hoody! Filoment Hoody extends our Filoment micro-rib range of down jackets to 4! Wear it as a lightweight top-layer for climbing, bouldering and belaying, or as an insulating mid-layer for when the serious cold really sets.

A micro-rib down jacket is a great lightweight and packable alternative to a windproof fleece. It has the cosy feeling of your most comfortable hoody, the one you always wear on a chilly mornings and sunset evenings, and now with a hood you will be even cosier. It has an active, functional cut made to extend over your hips with a long back length. The external breast pocket is big enough to stash your phone, gps or wallet in without having to undo your main zip and lose all that precious warm air!

Filoment Hoody is highly compact so it can be stashed in your bag without taking too much space and with a DWR coating it will shrug off the occasional spray.

Stays dry and retains loft up to 60 times longer than untreated down. It’s water based formulation is PFC-free and will not harm you or the environment. Absorbs 90% less water than untreated down, restoring performance much quicker.

The down we use in the Filoment Hoody is certified RDS (Responsible Down Standard). This mark indicates that the down in this product does not come from birds that have been live-plucked or force-fed, and that their welfare has been protected from the time they were hatchlings to when they are slaughtered. That’s good to know.
