Nikwax® Hydrophobic Down
Nikwax® Hydrophobic Down features the high-insulation, compressibility, and durability of natural goose down combined with the water-resistance of synthetic. Goose down is treated with an environmentally-friendly, PFC-free Durable Water Repellent treatment, meaning it absorbs 90% less water than untreated down, keeping you warm and protected even in wet and extreme conditions.
Designed to be the perfect companion to both natural and synthetic down, Pertex® Microlight is a windproof and weather-resistant material with a downproof construction that enables insulation to fully loft. Microlight uses a ripstop weave to increase abrasion-resistance and features a high-performance Durable Water Repellent finish to shed light rain, snow, and dirt.

It's warm, it's light, it’s windproof, so far it's just as you would expect 750 FP down jacket to be. I didn’t have a chance yet to try it the in wet conditions, but that’s not this jacket’s purpose anyway. Regarding the fit: I’m 187 cm, 80 kg, and size L fits ok. It leaves you some room to wear a midlayer underneath, maybe even more than expected. I wish it was just a little bit more slim fit (since it says in product description it is a slim fit, but I wouldn’t exactly agree on that). Maybe the solution is to put on significant amount of upper body muscles (or at least bigger belly, and then it’ll probably fit more slim :)
Anyway, warm and light piece of clothes that is easy to carry around and serves you well.
