New for winter 2019, the Neo top is identical to the Turbo top, but with the addition of a fixed hood. Half-zip styles are lighter and warmer than their full-zip versions, and perfect for anyone seeking to maximise their warmth-for-weight efficiency. Pullover styles are fairly uncommon – a lightweight one with a hood is very rare indeed.
The Neo top has a large single pocket with zipped access from each side. It also doubles as a stowaway hag (complete with belt loop). Down fill quantity and quality is 77 g of 970 fill-power Polish goose down. It has a stitch-through baffle construction with vertical stitch lines to further prevent movement of down. The underarm area has no down to improve air permeability for cooling and to reduce weight.
The Neo top has a water-resistant outer which is shower and moisture proof to help keep your down dry.

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.
