Mountain Hardwear Men's StretchDown DS Hooded Jacket
The Mountain Hardwear Men's StretchDown DS (Dynamic Stretch) Hooded Jacket is a down jacket that's built with a different kind of quilting pattern to makes it more stretchy and easier to move in. Rather than the traditional grid pattern, the StretchDown DS uses a discontinuous line of quilting (easier to understand from the picture) which enables it to stretch in multiple directions rather than being limited by lines of parallel stitching. And, to increase warmth, the seams are stretch welded rather than sewn to prevent heat loss. All of this combined with Nikwax Hydrophobic Down, a water-resistant down fill, makes the StretchDown DS ideal for use in all weathers and especially by those seeking a down jacket with greater mobility.

I have been looking for this jacket for the last 2 years but I have been to stingy to pay full price of $340 but at $198 I was finally willing to take the plunge. Shipped to the US super quick. Fit as expected and looks great according to my wife! I have been dreaming about having this jacket to take with me when I walk the Camino de Santiago next year and now my dream has come true.
