Our ELEMENT down long coat model achieves its excellent waterproof qualities through a combination of heat welded, non-quilt processing and seam tape construction. For the first time, we’ve made the outer fabric in LUMILET™ WOOL 2L, which uses a wool blend yarn that creates the natural feel of wool with excellent water resistance and moisture permeability. For extra warmth, the lining features Descente’s own HEAT NAVI technology, actively converting light into heat and boosting heat retention. The main front dual zip ventilation system has two zippers arranged with a mesh fabric panel between them which allows in sufficient outside air to prevent any uncomfortable buildup of heat and moisture inside the jacket. The hood is equipped with a Boa System ※1 dial closure to ensure perfect fit when in use.
※1 A unique, simple closure system developed in the USA by Boa Technology. Light and durable, it can be adjusted to provide maximum comfort with just one turn of a dial.
