Mountain Equipment's iconic down jacket, ideal for freezing conditions anywhere in the world.
Built to meet the demands of modern mountaineers, the Mountain Equipment Lightline Jacket is made using 700-fill pure down inside DRILITE® Loft 40D fabric, giving exceptional warmth and protection for sub-zero conditions.
The removable, adjustable hood uses a 3-panel design that gives a perfect fit, for comfortable warmth all round.
DRILITE® Loft 40D outer; totally windproof and highly water resistant
296g (Size L) of Pure Down with a minimum content of 90/10 700 fill power
Stitched-through construction throughout
Adjustable zip-off hood with 3 panels for exceptional fit and protection
2-way YKK® moulded centre front zip with rear insulated baffle
2 zipped hand warmer pockets behind insulated flaps
Initially great, but disappointing longer term build quality
Warm, packable and great fitting. Owned for 3 months. Used it for walking and as mid layer under a shell. Stitching around the hanger loop and around the neck by the hood failed and had to return.

Down Jacket five stars
I'm in my late sixties and over several years i have possessed numerous Down jackets from different well known companies. I can honestly say the Mountain Equipment Lightline is the best of them all.

What can i say.. Amazing jacket..
This is my No. 1 favourite down jacket.
Outstanding quality.. brilliant design.. and soooo warm.
As soon as i put this jacket on i was impressed instantly.. this is alot bang for your buck.
Your getting a top quality jacket and for the price it really is outstanding.. the material is 1500 mm hh waterproof.. although water will penetrate the stitching. But for the majority its waterproof protecting the down from moisture.
One main feature i love is the detachable hood which is one of the main things i was looking for in a down insulating jacket.
I also use a waterproof shell with jacket if it does rain to protect from rain/ moisture. This is primarliy the insulating layer of my jacket layering system.
I love the colour.. i went for the blue with orange liner..size XL.. which allows for base layers
It really is my favourite bit of kit..
Check out my video on youtube of this jacket in use..

Mountain Equipment Lightline Jacket
I got this jacket last week and it fits really well. It’s very comfy and extremely warm.
My local store didn’t have the jacket in stock, but the manager went above and beyond and managed to get the jacket delivered from another store. Excellent customer service.
Five stars for the jacket and five stars to the manager.

Mountain Equipment Men's Lightline Down Jacket
I highly recommend this snug fitting down jacket for normal winter temperatures in uk, nice big deep pockets to keep the hands and wrists warm, inside front pocket easily accommodates a mobile phone or wallet. Has a good cut and length at back of the jacket so the lower part of my back doesn’t get exposed if I’m bending over unlike my current Northface Puffer jacket which always seems to cinch over the waistline of my trousers when I’m working. It does have a removable hood and the collar is quite high and substantial around your neck which I like but some people may not. Haven’t been out in wet weather yet so not sure how it performs when soaked but it’s warm and cosy and the hood which has wired peak and can be adjusted to keep cold harsh winds at out kept my head warm. Overall very happy with gooutdoors and mountain equipment products are reliable.

Very Warm Jacket!
This is a very warm jacket, the only thing I found was I had to get a size bigger if I wanted to get a jumper under it. The bag is very handy to put it in when you have a backpack, compacts small. Would highly recommend! Great jacket by a great company!!
