The reputation down has achieved as the premium insulating material for outdoor adventure apparel all comes down to its ability to compress into packable shapes and expand again to its original size. It is this quality that makes the Escapism Down Vest a key addition to your wardrobe for multi-day cycling adventures. With high flexibility in the sleeve construction, this piece is equally suited to cycling applications as it is for everyday activities in the city.

The 900 fill-power goose down used keeps this piece ultralight and extraordinarily packable. The down is enclosed in a 100% nylon shell with a C0-rated DWR treatment, keeping you dry through those seemingly relentless rain showers.
The two front pockets are positioned higher up on the body to prevent packed belongings from being bounced and jostled around while pedalling, while a back pocket has been included for extra out-of-the-way storage.
A two-way Vislon YKK front zipper is featured for added ventilation. This zipper also provides easy access to inner layers through the addition of a custom PNS bottom zip puller. Silicone-dipped zip pullers have been added for improved access to all pockets.
An additional storage compartment allows this piece to be easily packed down and stowed away when not in use.
