MontBell Plasma 1000 Down Jacket

Latest and greatest from MontBell for ultra lightweight backpackers. This is serious no bullshit lightweight design. We are talking about minimum everything. No pockets, no draw cords, no hoods, smallest zipper used and not even clothing tags to save weight (jk, maybe not).

I can see how this year’s model features a new horizontal zig-zag sewing pattern. I think this will minimize the cold spots some reviewers were complaining about in the Mont-bell Ex Light Down. With an added $70 from the Ex model, in this you save .8 oz  and get 1000 fill, 100 more compared to the Ex.

Specs:

  • 1000 fill power goose down
  • 7-denier Ballistic Airlight rip-stop nylon
  • Standard DWR treatment
  • Sewn thru construction
  • Elastic cuffs to seal out drafts
  • Weight: 4.8 oz
