We will be bold here and say it outright: for its weight, the Pyro is by far the warmest jacket you will find anywhere. The secret to its warmth lies not so much in the amount of down it contains, which actually is not a lot (180 g of 850 cu.in. Polish goose down), but due to the fact that – uniquely for such a lightweight jacket – the Pyro features a box-wall baffle construction. This makes the Pyro considerably warmer than jackets with far more down but still featuring stitch-through baffles that leak heat like a colander drains water. Of course there is one downside – jackets with a box-wall construction take much longer to sew and this this is reflected in their higher cost. The benefit, however, is that you have a lighter, more compact and more thermally efficient jacket.
We have modified the Pyro jacket for 2019. The chest pocket is now on the inside, and the hood as been upgraded to fit over climbing helmets, There is also a new colour - dark red (image not available).

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.
