Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Poor Quality I bought this a week ago & the duck feathers keep coming out. I’m feeling very irritated after wearing this jacket. I saw feathers on my pants & my car seat. Even this afternoon when I was having my food few feathers fell down in my food. I’ve never seen this kind of rubbish jacket before. Don’t buy this product. Totally waste of your money.

Which pocket does the men’s Heli jacket fold into? 

Asked by: Kimmi T
The wearer's right hand side pocket should have a double sided puller that has a green PACK&GO tag on the inside. This is the pocket that your jacket stuffs into.

I recently ordered this jacket. Had a question in my mind on your website model have a packaway pocket and on the tag it shows how to fold the jacket for the pocket I was wondering if I should have received a pocket with the jacket? Or it is only to show

Asked by: Jay07
Hi there, the jacket packs away into it's own pocket ( the one with the green PacknGo label). This pocket is inverted so it is inside out to make it the storage bag for the jacket.

Is this jacket breathable and does it still provide warmth when wet? Ideally looking for a mid layer to compliment a merino base layer and Styper shell for Aussie sking conditions. Want a mid layer than can insulate but also regulate body temperature.

Asked by: Rob101
Hi thanks for your questions, the jacket is breathable however this is not measured and most of that comes from the space between each baffle of down, the down feathers will not insulate when wet so this will not provide warmth when wet.

Hi there, is this jacket ok so sub-zero weather? -5 to -10 degree Celsius. Thank you. 

Asked by: tnpc
Yes this jacket would be a big help in -5 to -10 degrees, we often recommend for Alpine conditions to use a down as a mid layer, with base layers underneath and a waterproof/windproof layer on top.
