Finisterre Sastruga Mark II Jacket
The answer to harsh, unforgiving, icy environments.
You don’t get much better than award-winning, ethically sourced outdoor clothing with a lifetime guarantee.
Finisterre’s Sastruga Mark II offers exceptional insulation from the moment you zip up by using Primaloft Eco recycled synthetic insulation. The body offers 170g/m2, with sleeves and hood at130g/m2 – it’s a puffer jacket with a difference.
While it’s only mildly water resistant with a DWR finish, the fill will retain 75% of its warmth when sodden and dries quickly – there’s no comparison to a down jacket that retains just 15% of its warmth and clumps when wet.
The super-lightweight ripstop outer shell can be re-proofed if it loses its beading properties, and is 100% recycled just like the lining: impressive for any enviro-conscientious outdoor folk.
You can tidy away the hood with a simple poppered pack-away system and store your various piece of kit in any 1 of 5 pockets – consisting of 1 internal security pocket, 2 chest and 2 side pockets.
Bungees in the hood and hem, combined with stretchy storm cuffs will have you wrapped up against the bitter weather in seconds.
Living in this feather light duvet through winter is a delight. It packs down to nothing and (a large) weighs a mere 600gms. The cut of the collar and hood are supremely comfortable and so well designed you’ll actually look good zipped right up. While it feels delicate, its resilience is remarkable. The lifetime guarantee is a true testament to the quality of materials and craftsmanship of this great puffer jacket from Finisterre.
