750 Fill Power Down is high quality down which offers lightweight warmth and low pack size. High quality down gives lower weight but higher heat retention than lower fill power down.
Garments with an Adjustable Hood feature draw cords with toggles or other adjustment mechanisms, to change the size and shape of the hood to better fit the head of the wearer. Such hoods usually adjust independently around the head, and around the face, for a snug fit and optimum weather protection.
Down has been treated in a water-repellent solution to enhance down water resistance, improve dry time, and enable loft to be retained far longer in wet conditions than untreated down. In short, hydrophobic down is not as sensitive to getting wet, so is a great improvement over untreated down in unpredictable real-world conditions.
Lightweight products feature lightweight materials and constructions to reduce the user’s load and aid mobility. Lightweight clothing products are thin and provide very little or no cushioning and insulation. They are best used for high-intensity or warm-weather pursuits, or employed as part of a layering system.
Pertex Quantum technology is the lightest of the Pertex fabrics and it shows the best strength to weight ratio. Pertex Quantum is down proof and withstands the abuse of hardcore use.

I really love this jacket. It'd a great balance between warmth and weight, the moment you put it on you feel warm, yet it still packs down small and light. The cut is great in the back, low enough to keep it from riding up when moving around. I bought the men's version even though I'm a woman because I have problems with the width of womens jackets around my hips. It does fit great in the body but the arms are exceptionally roomy -theres plenty of extra fabric I could do without. But I'm happy with this balance and would recommend this as a unisex jacket for women with larger hips.

The jacket is good, comfortable and warm. I bought it for my son and he likes it very much. It is packable, convenient when he has to move from one class to another during school lesson.
