The Flight Vest from Western Mountaineering is just what you would expect from the premier down sleeping bag maker in the US. If you are looking for a lightweight, compact, and highly insulative layer, then look no further; you'll be hard-pressed to find a lighter-weight vest that offers this much warmth. Western Mountaineering has carefully selected the lightest fabrics, zippers, and materials to make the Flight. The shell fabric is a tightly woven 0.9 oz per sq yard, and the total weight is just 6.5 oz. The Flight is a great choice for winter trips to the desert, high-altitude summer camping, and fast-and-light three-season mountaineering. Because this is a lightweight fabric we recommend you use care in areas where you can snag the jacket. Use of a shell is recommended when bushwhacking or climbing!
Western Mountaineering's top-notch construction methods, attention to detail, and years of experience working solely with premium down set them apart from other brands; they are simply one of the world's best down companies, bar none. Based in San Jose, CA, they are committed to manufacturing the in USA. Their down is sourced from free-range mother geese who are never live-plucked or force-fed.
