The Pico half-zip top is our lightest down garment and just about the lightest available in the world. We would also maintain that it offers more heat (relatively speaking) than other garments in its category, thanks to its top-quality down fill (a stunning 900 European fill-power rating) and a very high ratio of down (70 g) to its overall weight (180 g).
We designed the Pico as a an extra layer in very cold conditions or as an emergency reserve, since its compact dimensions and minimal weight mean you’ll hardly notice you've packed it. It's great for summer trips or for trekking in hot regions where the nights can still be cool.
It can also be used as outerwear in cold, dry conditions where you are generating heat and don’t want to overcook.

Down is a very resilient insulating material and, with basic care, any down jacket should last you a very long time.
There are two simple rules to ensure longevity:
1. Always store your jacket uncompressed in a dry, airy place
2. Try to keep it as clean as possible to minimize washing (this ultimately damages the down).
We highly recommend you hand-wash your down garment or, alternatively, use a professional service. You can download washing instructions here.
