5 questions about the AAR jacket, answered!


A good lightweight packable jacket is a must in every traveller’s wardrobe, and this season, FIG designed the perfect one! 5 questions about the AAR jacket, answered!


How would you describe the jacket?
--------------------------
The AAR jacket combines practicality, performance and style. It will meet all your needs for the fall, and even for mild winter days.



What is it made with?
--------------------------
The shell is made from a 20 denier micro ripstop fabric that is 100% nylon. Not only is it supple and soft, it is a highly durable fabric.


Our packable jacket is insulated with RDS down. RDS is a certification that ensures traceability in the down supply chain, as well as an ethical treatment of animals.



Why did we choose down insulation?
--------------------------

Simply because of its unrivalled performance qualities! Down perfectly traps still air, and air is the best insulation there is. We wanted this jacket to be warm, ultra lightweight and packable, so we chose a top of the line 700 FP down.



Is it water resistant?
--------------------------

Yes! The fabric we use for this jacket is water resistant due to its C6 eco DWR (durable water repellent), which protects from rain and snow. It is considered eco because it is less damaging to the environment, compared to conventional C8 DWRs. Its components are less toxic and decompose faster in the environment. This is the best option on the market, one that offers a high degree of performance, and above all durability.



What makes it travel-friendly?
--------------------------

On top of being super lightweight and packable, the AAR has a useful internal zip secure pocket, which can be used for a passport and/or a phone, as well as two zip secure pockets for extra storage. You’ll also find an awesome hidden pouch inside the jacket that allows you to transform it into a comfy travel pillow! Perfect for the car or the plane!

The AAR is available in 3 beautiful colours. We’re sure you will like it as much as we do!
