Warmth without the weight.
Packing the warmth of 750-fill goose down without slowing you down with excess bulk, the Black Yak Men's Maiwa Light Down Jacket is a toasty midlayer for adventurous alpine missions, fast-moving ski tours, and ice climbing pursuits. To maintain lofting power in the wet and damp, the down insulation features a hydrophobic finish that repels condensation and outside moisture from compromising its heat-trapping loft. Black Yak places lightweight Cordura ripstop along the insulated panels for a high levels of abrasion-resistance. This fabric uses a DWR finish that repels outside moisture from seeping through and dampening the down insulation beneath. Along the rest of the jacket's body, Cordura Stretch Fleece maintains a soft, stretchy feel during fast-paced alpine activities while holding up against abrasion and regular abuse.

- Q & A
I love everything about the Black Yak Maiwa Light Down Jacket with one crucial exception ... the biceps are too tight. For some reason, my hooded Black Yak jacket fits phenomenally well, and this one did too through the torso, but on this one the arms were just too tight. Not sure why. C'est la vie.
My favorite down jacket
This is the cleanest down jacket I've ever worn. Great attention to detail and packs down to nothing.
Light Down Insulation
Great movement and breathability
Because it's used with high end CORDURA Stretch the material never looses its memory.
