There are days when you’re torn between the warmth of your sleeping bag and the adventure waiting outside: with the Inversion, you can have both. Inspired by One Planet sleeping bag technology, this jacket offers exceptional performance in extreme cold.
Features include 800+ loft DWR down, water-resistant shell fabric and zips, box-wall baffles on the body and an awesome hood that fits over a helmet and folds down into a collar. There are also pockets, both external (two hand-warmer) and internal (one zipped and two mesh); a soft-touch chin guard; Velcro cuffs and a drawcord waist.
Fabric for down jackets must perform two roles: keep the fill in the garment and allow body-generated moisture to get out. The shell fabric must also keep external moisture out in some conditions; in garments designed for extreme use, highly water-resistant shell fabric is preferable.
Pertex Endurance is the lightest, most breathable and weather-resistant fabric we can find. It weighs a measly 36 g/m2, has a water head of 1000 millimetres and a breathability of 7000 g/m2/24 hours (according to results from test JIS L 1099 A-1). You do the comparisons: it’s hard to beat! The fabric combines an air-permeable membrane with a durable nylon face fabric: the membrane is so thin it barely affects the weight or softness of the material, but it is highly breathable and water and wind resistant.
One Planet DWR Down
The Inversion jacket is filled to order with our 800+ loft DWR DOWN. This high-lofting white duck down delivers luxurious warmth at a fine, feathery weight. It has excellent compactability and loft recovery.
Down is the best insulation for jackets due to its loft, compressibility and durability. However, this golden fibre has a failing: its ability to insulate drastically decreases when it is wet.
The solution is now here – DWR DOWN. This down has been selected to meet our rigorous standards, with a durable water-repellent (DWR) treatment applied after the cleaning and sorting process.
The benefits of DWR DOWN are:
It absorbs less water in damp conditions
It retains higher loft (insulation) in damp conditions
It dries faster
Ethically sourced down
Our down is ethically sourced, harvested and cleaned before purchase, with both the down and our supplier passing independent International Down and Feather Laboratory (IDFL) audits relating to ethical traceability. This means that the white down and feathers we purchase are from animals that haven’t been live plucked or force-fed at any point during the supply chain.
The IDFL has been around almost 40 years and has a solid base in China, from where around 75% of the global supply of down is sourced. There are more details on the IDFL here: www.idfl.com/whytest

How to take your measurements
1. Chest: measure around your chest, holding the measuring tape under your armpit.
Note: for an accurate fit, measure yourself whilst wearing your thickest mid-layer. This ensures your jacket fits well as part of your layering system.
