Why We Chose It: Very warm, high quality and sustainably made
When a jacket costs £350 you’re expecting proper quality and next-level performance. Is that the case with the Klättermusen Liv then? Well fortunately the answer to that is yes. There’s a lot of nice stuff going on here.
As we’ve come to expect from Klättermusen, this is a quality jacket made out of some impressive materials and with loads of nice little details to enhance the overall functionality.
What’s The Klättermusen Liv Unisex Down Jacket Best Suited To?
This is one of those classic all-rounder down jackets, the kind of thing that’ll suit anything from mountaineering and climbing to hiking and backpacking. Basically, it’s made for any pursuit where you want a top notch warmth-to-weight ratio. I personally could see this being the kind of jacket I’d want to take on any of my next long-distance walk.
As was the case with the Klättermusen Allgron 2.0, which we reviewed earlier this year, there are some great efforts towards sustainability here. The face fabric, for instance, is made from 100% recycled Polyamide and no nasty eco-hazardous PFCs are present in the durable water repellent coating and impregnation. On top of that, the down is all certified by the Responsible Down Standard and comes with bluesign approval to boot.
Materials and Construction
The 800 fill power down has an impressive amount of loft to it. It gives the jacket a very puffy and cosy feel. It’s 93% goose down – good quality then – with feathers making up the remaining 7%.
