Marmot's Avant Featherless Hoody is constructed using 3M Thinsulate insulation - an innovative down alternative. It looks, acts and feels like down, even working when wet. With woven baffle fabric for a more durable construction.
The lightweight Men's Avant Featherless Insulated Hoody will keep you warm on your next outdoor adventure without feeling bulky or adding a lot of weight to your pack. 3M™ Thinsulate™ Recycled Featherless Insulation is made with 75% recycled loose-fill fibers that feel just as warm as 700 fill power down, but still perform when wet. The 20-denier, woven baffle fabric construction weaves the layers together, keeping the insulation in place and eliminating cold spots. Elastic binding around the hood will keep it firmly in place.
The Marmot Avant Featherless Hoody is scientifically engineered with 3M Thinsulate to replace natural down. It looks like down and acts like down but while traditional down loses warmth when wet, the Featherless keeps on performing. Unlike the original Featherless collection, the Avant has been made with 20 Denier woven baffle fabric which is a more durable construction. The stronger baffles also lead to less leakage of insulation, which is ideal when there's a whopping 254g of it.
The Jacket packs tight and travels light. There's a pull drawcord on the hem and both the hood and cuffs have an elasticated binding. The jacket has 3 pockets in total - two hand warmer pockets and 1 internal storage pocket.
Overall a warm jacket that will keep you warm even when wet.
