Why We Like It

Lightweight comfort and uncompromising performance at an affordable price. Need I say more? The Magma is one of the most versatile puffy's on the market, with a great feature set that is ready for just about any condition. With a 50D Pertex ripstop shell, underarm baffles for easy movement, a draw cord hem to seal out drafts, and 850 goose down fill, the Magma will keep you nice and toasty without having to fork out hundreds. One of my all-time-favorite jackets.
