WINNER: Gazyi

In celebration of the Lightline Jacket's 40th Anniversary, UKClimbing have teamed up with Mountain Equipment to offer you the chance to win this benchmark lightweight, technical duvet.

The Mountain Equipment Lightline Jacket - It's been to 7 continents, used on countless first ascents, and helped to define what a down jacket is capable of. And this year it turns 40.

Before the Lightline, down jackets were the domain of cutting-edge high altitude mountaineers; a specialist and niche product. But from 1977, things changed.

Becoming the staple technical duvet of climbers, mountaineers and hikers the world over, the Lightline Jacket predates the Walkman, MS-DOS, and the CD. But unlike them, it is as relevant now as it has ever been.

A major redesign in 1990 heralded the first rebirth of the Lightline Jacket. Nine years later, in 1999, the Lightline gained a baffle over the front zip, and a redistribution of baffles to ensure improved thermal performance. Finally in 2013, another ground-up rebuild modernised the jacket even further, whilst still ensuring the classic elements of warmth and protection remained.
