Great value, real down warmth!
A down gilet is a men's outerwear staple. Easily layered under a coat or over a shirt, it's a truly versatile three-season essential. And this one is made to be highly functional, too. Outside, the water resistant shell repels rain. Inside, 600-fill power down insulation provides superior warmth without weight or bulk. All this, at a great price. What's not to love?

Down is surprisingly durable; the gilet can be machine washed and tumble dried; just add a couple of clean tennis balls to help it dry more quickly and fluff up as good as new.

          Quite a thin gillet so very easy to wear but is warm ? The down!
          Bigger size than I was expecting so err on a smaller size when ordering.

            I bought this item in blue and grey in the sale. I had bought the gilet in blue in the autumn at full price but it has a tear at the back where the feathers are coming through. Not sure if tear is due to poor fabric (my son only wore it a couple of times) or it it caught on something. However, liked the item enough to buy two more for him.

                    Even at sale price, I did not want to keep this item. It was thin and poor quality. Not at all what I expected. I returned it. It was also difficult to return as the delivery company messed up sending me a return label,after I had paid for the service on line, for a next day collection and when I emailed them got an automated email back saying I would be answered in 48 hrs - after the collection time!

                        I am sorry to advise that we are not expecting further stock of this item. After our Sale has finished, we will be starting to sell our Spring items.

                        The Gilet is filled with duck down. The 600 rating represents the volume in cubic centimetres of a single gram of down.

                        The largest size in this gilet is XL which is recommended for a 46-48" chest. We do offer a larger version, style number 434965. This comes in 2XL which is recommended for a 50-52" chest.
