‘The revamped Filoment is a cracking lightweight down jacket by any standards, but the Nikwax water-resistant down adds a new dimension of damp-friendly performance. Brilliant’
Outdoors Magic: Neat looks and cut, thorough design, warmth to weight ratio, packability, awesome Nikwax hydrophobic down. Great colour. Brilliant value.
Outdoors Tragic: In an ideal world, the hood would move with your head, but it’s not a big.
Outdoors Grabbit? Just a really good lightweight down jacket full stop. The cut is great, all the details have been thought through and the midi-baffled design gives an excellent combination warmth and weight. The use of ethically sourced Nikwax water-resistant down is a huge bonus. It retains more loft if the jacket fill gets damp, but also means it dries improbably quickly and still retains its original performance without any special drying techniques. All that and at a spectacularly good price too. Ideal lightweight down all-rounder that can cope with the odd dunking along the way. Recommended.
