Why We Like The Approach Down Hoody

Black Diamond's Approach always ends up at the top of our packs just in case we need a bit more warmth on the climb. Black Diamond designed it for expeditions, ice climbs, or belaying on multi-pitches, but we'll take it on nearly any hike with a chilly weather forecast. We especially appreciate that the DWR treatment made environmentally friendly and appears to be more robust than standard DWR treatments.

  • Ultralight down insulator designed for alpine pursuits
  • GTT DWR treatment offers environmentally friendly water-resistance

What do you think about this product?



Does anyone happen to know the 'fill ratio' of this jacket? 800 fill-down is great but I need to know the feather ratio to get a sense of when to use it.
