Summertime Backcountry Gear: Montbell Superior Down Jacket

Tucked into a corner of every alpine-seeking backpacker or climber’s rucksack should be a well-made, ultra-light and highly compressible down puffy like this one. Made for high elevation treks with nights that can and do get quite cold, weighing in at just over 7 ounces, this feather-packed sweater will chase away summertime mountain chills and downright freezing fall and early winter weather at camp, out on the trail, or at home in the city. Weighing in at 7.3 ounces, the 800 fill down, DWR treated jacket has two zippered hand pockets with hem adjustment cords. MSRP: $139. //
