APEX by Climashield, a superior continuous filament synthetic insulation, is the choice here.
We have 2 weights available. For summer season mountain use in the continental US (and the Alps) the 2.5 oz/yd level is appropriate. Shoulder season users can select the 3.6 Apex level.
The APEX specs:
2.5 oz/yd Climashield APEX - 85 g/m - light, compact, 2 season
3.6 oz/yd Climashield APEX - 122 g/m - more weight/bulk, 3 season
Shell, 10d ripstop nylon: Finely textured, comfortable and about the lightest material possible for practical shell use. Very breathable with minimal moisture repellency.
Shell, 15d ripstop nylon: While only 15d this fabric is a significant step up in durability and tear strength over the 10d. Almost ultralight certified, with just a slight weight penalty between ¾ - 1½ ounces depending on size.
Liner, 10d taffeta: Black non-ripstop smooth weave.
Liner, 20d taffeta: Burly liner material for passing muddy boots thru regularly.
