Explore Down Jacket
Adventure starts anywhere
The Explore Down Jacket is our most versatile jacket ever, with a fit that’s designed to work equally well on and off the bike.
The jacket is made with a lightweight woven nylon outer fabric and filled with high loft 850-fill-power down to create an insulating layer for exceptional warmth in the coldest of conditions, weighing just 238 grams in size medium. The down insulation is treated with a durable water repellent coating in order to retain loft and lock in warmth even when wet. Working closely with industry-leading partner Allied Feather, we use a fully traceable, responsibly sourced down and each jacket comes with a lot number, allowing you to track the exact origin of the fill. Heat is locked in with elasticated openings at the hood and cuffs as well as an elasticated waistband which is adjusted via hidden cinches inside the front pockets.
Distinctive contrast stitching features on the chest, adding visibility without compromise on weight or packability. The hood features a lightweight elastic binding and can be removed completely for those packing lighter still. Reflective logos are positioned on the back and chest for added visibility.
When night falls, the jacket combines with the Explore Sleeping Bag to form an integrated sleep system for warmth and comfort on overnighters in mild conditions. The full sleep system packs down small, taking up only a third of the Explore Bar Pack.
Our Explore range has a slightly more relaxed fit. If you’re unsure which size will offer you the most comfort, our updated size guides can help you find the perfect size.
The down in every one of our jackets is fully traceable, ethically sourced and free of fluorocarbon.
