Men's Brooks Down Sweater

800 FILL 37.5 ACTIVE DOWN

$265.00 USD

Color/Pattern
In Stock & Ready to Ship

At 10.9 ounces, the Brooks Down Sweater is the definition of ultralight, highly packable backcountry insulation. Built with 100 grams of DWR-treated, 800-fill power, 37.5-DownTek, the Brooks provides advanced, active insulation that fights off moisture to keep both you and your down insulation warm, dry, and comfortable.

When you're miles into the backcountry, weight is key but not at the expense of your insulation that keeps you warm and protected. With that at the forefront of our minds, the Brooks was designed using 50% more down than its closest competitor to be the lightest weight possible while ensuring best-in-class warmth. The Brooks Down Sweater features a drop-tail hem for critical coverage when glassing, and an ultralight Turret hood design that can be operated with one hand to lock in heat while maintaining full field-of-view. Whether you are packing into the high Tundra for caribou in August or climbing southwestern Sky Islands for Coues deer in January, the Brooks Down Sweater is the trusted choice to guarantee your warmth while maintaining durability in the field.

The Brooks Down Sweater is engineered to fit close to the body for insulating purposes. Please be aware of this and size up one size if you feel you are between sizes.

    Worth the money!

    If you have eight hunting jackets that you have accumulated of the years for an insulation layer, then I would suggest a yard sale! Order this thing, you will not regret it. So lightweight and extremely packable. You backpack will lighten up! The xxl allows me to layer underneath without feeling constricted. I think a TALL option in this would be helpful in regards to arm length.

    The Brooks down sweater combines a ton of warmth with very little weight. I'm always amazed how warm this coat is when I put in on and look forward to layering it with other First Lite jackets when winter arrives.

    My favorite layering hoodie

    This jacket is so versatile, one of my favorite pieces of gear. It’s light and easily packable so I’d wear it before the sun came up and just stuff it in my pack on my way out of the woods. Insanely warm and breaks up more than you’d expect.

    Brooks down is a must for my western hunt kit

    I’m very impressed with the warmth to weight ratio and packability of the Brooks down sweater. It’s been a staple in my pack from archery antelope and Elk and its currently in my pack for mid season mule deer and elk. Perfect for glassing ridgeline spots with windy conditions after hiking to elevation.

    It it’s good, great hood, longer cut in the back is perfect. It needs a draw string built in along the waist. Usually jackets will have the pull ties in the pockets or the inside of waist seam. The jacket flares a little at the waist.

    Great Purchase

    I’m in between sizes and originally purchased a small, which was too tight in the armpit/shoulder area. The medium is a bit long in the sleeves but I still give it 5 stars for over all comfort and warmth. Much quieter than my Kuiu puffy when moving around.
