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.

                Comments about Men's Essential Plain Down Gilet:

                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!

                              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.
