Mountain Equipment Compressor Hooded Jacket (Light Ocean)

The Compressor Hooded Jacket is very similar to the M.E. Arete Jacket. They are both considered as a heavyweight mid layer piece or a super lightweight belay jacket and both are constructed using the same Helium 30 outer fabric; however the Compressor is filled with PrimaLoft Gold instead of duck down. This means that this jacket is more suitable for use if you know the day is going to be wet (which in the UK are most days); the reason for this is because PrimaLoft Gold still works when wet where as a down would just die.
The Helium 30 fabric itself is highly windproof protecting the nice warm air that is trapped within the PrimaLoft insulation. The adjustable Mountain Hood gives a precise cranial fit and like any decent belay jacket; it packs into its own pocket and can be attached to your harness using the stitched in crab loop.
