Lightweight, water-resistant, and very warm; made in USA

Made with the finest 850+ fill power goose down and a water-resistant microfiber shell, the Western Mountaineering Meltdown Jacket is a superior package of warmth and protection. It is lightweight, functional and made to last. This is a perfect jacket for wintertime Joshua Tree climbing trips, backpacking in very early spring or late fall, or semi-active use in cold climates. Warmer than a typical ultralight jacket but not as burly as a mountaineering parka, the Meltdown has an incredible warmth to weight ratio so you can take it nearly anywhere.

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.

- Microfiber Outer Shell Fabric: Each microfiber yarn has many more filaments than a normal nylon or polyester yarn of equivalent size. Woven into high thread count material, it becomes a fabric that really keeps wind and water out. Since there is no coating or laminate on the material, it is highly breathable. The fabric construction itself is responsible for weather-proofness; it's not something that can wear off, wash out or delaminate. This is the most technologically advanced non-laminated weather-resistant fabric available. (While it is water-resistant, this fabric is not waterproof. Don't take it out in a heavy rain, but a light drizzle is fine.)
