An alpine style ascent of Cho Oyu demands ultra-light and warm insulation like the Mountain Hardwear Nilas Jacket for men. This cutting edge down jacket rocks the lightest fabric and highest quality 850-fill down Mountain Hardwear could find. The revolutionary AirShield™ Elite fabric's 15-denier rating delivers durability with minimal weight and bulk. Expressly designed for visionary alpinist Ueli Steck and his groundbreaking alpine pursuits, the Nilas embodies his alpine style ethic: no-frills excellence and efficient design. One-handed drawcords make hood and hem adjustments a breeze, while baffled construction maximizes down loft and warmth at all times. You'll find four pockets, two inside and two hand warmers. The margin for error when you are traveling light is thin, and the Mountain Hardwear Nilas jacket is designed to keep you warm without fanfare or question.

Light and Toasty Warm!
May 07, 2012

This is one of the warmest down jackets on the planet yet very light and easily packable. I have North Face Himalyan and Canada Goose down jackets, but this is the far lightest and not bulky at all. I have to test its toughness in harsh conditions over the brutal winter season back country for more fair comparision. But it is toasty warm and still makes you look very stylish. I will highly recommend this to all my friends and family members

Pros: Great design, Ease of use, Performance, Cons: Cost
