Style + Performance.
Afternoon snowshoe adventures and evening gallery strolls call for the style and performance of the Black Yak Women's MAIWA Light Down Jacket. The MAIWA is constructed using a combination of three different materials. The first is a lightweight Cordura ripstop that offers extreme durability with a packable feel. Stretch Polartec fleece panels along the sides and under the arms for increases mobility, breathability, and wicks away sweat during high-performance activities. Cordura stretch cuffs finish off the jacket by sealing out cold, adding durability, and creating dimension for visual interest. Responsibly sourced down gives this jacket serious warmth and has been treated to resist water for reliable warmth in extreme conditions. In addition to its technical design, the Light Down Jacket features a stand-up collar for additional weather protection and zippered hand pockets to keep essentials secure. With a simple, clean aesthetic combined with technical performance, this jacket will carry you from outdoor excursions to urban explorations with little effort.

- Q & A
My wife was excited to try the Black Yak Maiwa Down Jacket and she hasn't been disappointed!!
When it first arrived, she was a bit concerned that the side panels were fleece rather than down, but after wearing the jacket daily for all activities (skiing, hiking, climbing, lounging, etc.) she absolutely loves it.
The fabric is extremely durable, more so than most other lightweight down jackets, with minimal additional weight. It doesn't pack down quite as well as the Mountain Hardwear Ghost Whisperer, but still fits compactly in a pack.
The overall fit is quite slim, but not tight.
The arms are long which gives a good range of motion for active pursuits (e.g., climbing).
Overall it's a great jacket that is built to gnarly mountains, but looks cool at the same time.
Warm, durable, stylish
