Description

Mountain Equipment's Sigma Jacket is a substantial down jacket for use whenever and wherever temperatures are frigid. It occupies the middle ground between lightweight down jackets which are able to fit under shells and act as mid-layers, and heavier expedition parkas designed for use at high altitudes and temperatures as low as -40 degrees. We would roughly estimate that the Sigma jacket holds its own against temperatures down to around 0 degrees, but this will depend on layering and the activity level of the user.

The Sigma jacket is filled with 200 grams of high-quality 750+ fill power  goose down, which offers excellent loft and compressibility. The jacket uses stitch-through baffle construction to hold the down clusters in place, which reduces weight, complexity, and price compared to heavier and more expensive (but potentially warmer) box-wall construction.

ABOUT MOUNTAIN EQUIPMENT 

Based in Cheshire, United Kingdom, Mountain Equipment has been going Above and Beyond since 1961. For over five decades, they have been equipping expeditions for the harshest conditions on earth. They have participated in every British first ascent of an 8000m peak, been part of more than 175 Everest summits by International Mountain Guides and Sherpas, and equipped unsupported trips to the North and South Poles. They made the very first one-piece down suit for mountaineering use, for Don Whillan's 1970 Annapurna expedition. So whether you are going on expedition to the Himalaya or learning the ropes in North Wales (or Vermont!) you can do so safe in the knowledge that your Mountain Equipment gear has been proven to perform.
