The Lowe Alpine Polar has a recycled polyester outer; 650 fill power 80/20
down; two zipped hip pockets; zipped internal pocket. But 810g (men’s XL) is heavy; no hood; not as warm as others; no adjustment at cuffs.
The Lowe Alpine Polar is good for a chilly day watching the kids play football, but others have more benefits for the mountain walker and camper.
