Here at LD Mountain Centre you'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing a down or synthetic insulated jacket or vest. A natural down jacket or vest like the Rab Microlight Alpine Jacket or Haglofs Essens ll Vest will give you a great weight to warm ratio and super small pack size. Synthetic fill offerings such as the Arcteryx Atom LT Hoody have a slightly larger pack size but the synthetic insulation retains it's thermal properites when wet. This type of jacket or vest is rapidly becoming the mid-layer of choice for serious freeride skiers and mountaineers and they look great in the bar afterwards or in your local pub. Multi-functional for sure.
