We don’t normally get excited by down jackets, but the new Seamless weaving technology from Millet is pretty impressive. Instead of sewing baffles to keep feathers in place, the French company developed a new type of loom that weaves them in place. This means the Trilogy Synthesis Down Hoodie isn’t full of needle holes which let heat out and moisture in. As a bonus, the seamless technology also saves on string weight since there is nothing to sew. In other words, the Millet Trilogy Synthesis jackets are lighter, warmer, and more waterproof than the competition. Perfect for technical mountaineering and modern alpine ascents. This is the best down hoodie in town, period.
