Among all the superb Mizusawa Down jackets, this high spec model is the standout for comfort and performance – a real gem for anyone in pursuit of perfection. Its non-quilted thermal bonding and seam tape construction makes it supremely waterproof, and its unique Parahood system ※1 prevents water or snow from pooling around the neck. A mesh panel between dual front zips draws in air from outside to prevent uncomfortable heat and moisture buildup, and additional temperature control is provided by Descente’s own brilliant HEAT NAVI lining. A winner ever since it took out an award in the Mountain Performance category at ISPO 2013※2.
※1 By incorporating a unique top opening zip, which we call Parazip, the hood can be kept closed when not in use, but opened quickly when conditions change.
※2 ISPO is the world’s largest international sports business show, held annually in Munich, Germany. For the ISPO Awards, sports-related products are judged strictly on concept, design, technicality, environmental sensitivity and other criteria, with superior products winning awards that are highly regarded within the industry.
Dual Zip Ventilation
Optimum levels of comfort inside the jacket are effectively maintained by a Dual Ventilation system build into the front zipper.
Its Para-Hood system with Para-Zip ensures compact hood storage, but also prevents water pooling when worn in the rain. A Para-Zip in the hood ensures fast and simple adjustment when necessary.
