Illuminate Down Jacket

Layer up for your next alpine adventure with the warm and lightweight Outdoor Research Illuminate Down Jacket. This midweight 800-fill power down insulating layer excels at trapping heat and keeping you warm when worn under a shell on your next ski, snowshoe, or mountaineering excursion. The nylon outer layer protects against water and wind if you have to unzip or shed a layer on the uphill, while an internal media pocket and two hand pockets can hold your favorite energy gels, granola bars, and music device. Additionally when the sun heats up your ski tour, take the Illuminate down jacket off and stuff it in its own left pocket so that it fits easily in your pack for the rest of the day.

  • Insulating mid-layer for cold alpine adventures of all kinds
  • 800-fill power down traps heat while remaining lightweight
  • Nylon outer resists wind and water if any sneaks through your shell
  • Zippered media and hand pockets hold all of the essentials
  • Two internal Shove-it pockets hold items to keep your hands free
  • Stuffs easily into left pocket for condensed packing on the go
  • Elastic drawcord at hem keeps out unwanted drafts of wind

Already Shedding Feathers

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

Did a lot of research on my first down jacket for an upcoming winter trip and ended up with the Illuminate. Pros: Great fit (I'm 6' 185 lbs and the Large is perfect), extremely warm and light. Seems to be excellent build quality.
Cons: I've owned this jacket for less than a week and already a considerable amount of feathers are shedding from the lower seems. I'm not sure if this is normal for a down jacket, but definitely doesn't seem like it should be. Disappointing overall and will likely be returning.
