I used this down jacket during 5 months on my thru hike in New zeland (3200 kms). His compressor bag allow me to tidy it very easily and it is pretty light. It is warm enough until 0.
I felt from a montain and i was stuck : this down jacket save my life against the cold.
It is pretty worth it jacket.
Good size in terms of fit and freedom of movement but just a bit short at the bottom back but really really warm and weather proof
Brilliant trendy jacket next time ill go a size bigger,just slightly tight but ok
Got this in the sale and would have paid full price for it. Just right to take the chill off the bones at night while sitting around a campsite. Packs down for the rucksack. Bought a Medium size but feels a size Small & 1/2
I bought one of these in France four years back and it has been worn out in Welsh hills, the high street, football terraces, wind blown freezing cold surfing beaches and around caving huts. It is lightweight, and warm in cold weather. I would recommend highly one of these jackets (a couple of pals have bought them on my recommendation). I like the jacket so much, I am going to order another one as they are so good. Order a size larger than your perceived size as they come up small.
Although snug this was light and warm and I loved the grey and orange colours. Then one enthusiastic dog later and it ripped like tissue paper. Hardly durable?
Hello Darren, thank you for your review of the x-light down jacket. We are sorry to hear that your jacket has been destroyed but the jacket is designed to be durable within the limits of the activity (trekking) and will not withstand dog attacks.

On average sizes this was just a bit on the small size, had to return for a refund
I bought this for my son to complete a 64km Walk next month. It is fantastically light and warm. He likes it so much he is wearing it around town! Just be aware that they are really slim fitting. He is only 65kg and 15 years old but I had to get him a medium and that is pretty snug. I’d recommend trying one before buying or go up at least one size if buying on line.
Up to the first was, i was a bit "meh" about this product. Very warm, too warm for high effort activity like mtb'ing where I was very sweaty. Pockets way too small. In one week I had numerous things (gloves, phone) fall out of the pocket (yes I should have closed the zip). Sizing very wacky, Im 173cm and 74kg and had to exchange medium for a large, and even that size is very tight. Just washed it and all the down filling has balled up. Again my mistake for not reading the washing instructions. It turns out you are supposed to put 2 tennis balls in the washing machine. Whoever heard of such wierd instructions. Ive had similar products from other manufacturers (Montane) and they have washed fine.
Thanks for the feedback on the Quechua X-light down jacket and apologies for the inconvenience caused by the sizing. Regarding the washing; its a common instruction for down jackets which use natural down or feathers. Adding tennis balls or similar into the dryer stops the feathers from clumping together and helps to re ‘fluff’ the down. Should the down be synthetic then you tend to not require them as much. Thanks for getting in touch.
