A technical all-rounder ideal for cold days at the crag and winter walking, the Nimbus is a quick-drying insulated jacket designed to handle cold and damp environments.
With a lightweight and windproof Pertex® Quantum fabric, the Nimbus Jacket can be worn as an outer or mid-layer. Our Cirrus™ insulation lofts like down, with the wet weather insulating performance of a synthetic. Technical features include an over or under helmet hood with stretch binding and peak, front zip with insulated baffle, and elasticated cuffs to maximise warmth. With one zipped internal security pocket, and two zipped handwarmer pockets, the left side doubles as an integrated stuff sack which can be clipped to a harness or backpack.
Featherless insulation has all the key benefits of down and has water resistant fibres that expand and loft like down feather to create a cloud of warmth around the wearer. It has the same warmth to weight ratio as a 600 fill power duck down equivalent. It lofts well, compresses into it's own pocket for easy storage and resistant to moisture too. The Nimbus is the ideal choice for the climber who needs a light jacket with helmet compatibility, and the hiker who requires a warm mid layer that can fit nicely under a waterproof shell when the weather turns nasty. This versatile jacket has three pockets for essentials and Lycra bound cuffs and hood to trap precious heat inside.
The beauty of the Cirrus synthetic insulation is that should you get caught in a down pour of rain the Nimbus Jacket will not loose any of its warm insulating ability. If you are out and about in wet or damp conditions then you do not have to worry so much about keeping your Nimbus thermal jacket dry to ensure you stay warm. When the weather dries up - so do you, because Cirrus is a synthetic insulation it dries quicker than its natural equivalent.
Lightweight and packable, the Nimbus Jacket is easy to care for and well suited to the damp, cold and changeable conditions experienced in the UK hills. Get out and enjoy the hills in this Light-weight walking jacket. Made from Quick-drying material this featherless insulation jacket will keep you warm no matter what activity you are doing.
