Jott Jacket Review

63

The Jott Jacket is a top-of-the-range midweight down jacket designed for cold conditions. It’s built using premium materials, including 850-fill power water-repellent goose down, a 30-denier ripstop nylon face fabric, and synthetic insulation in moisture-prone areas.

It is an excellent addition to a mountaineering pack for winter summit trips and chilly bouldering sessions or as a warm jacket for frosty wild camps and bivvies. Despite minor shortcomings, it’s a highly effective garment that delivers warmth and performance.

Size

JOTT jackets are designed to be light, compact, and windproof. These are all features that make them perfect for outdoor adventures, and they can even be easily stowed away in your backpack or day bag when not in use.

This jacket is made from a thin shell material with one of the best DWR treatments on the market. This fabric repels water 10x better than untreated down, which makes it an excellent choice for any outdoor activity in damp or rainy conditions.

The Jott Fenrir is an 850-fill power goose down jacket that uses body-mapped down to provide insulation where it’s needed most and less where it’s not. It also has body-mapped box wall construction to help it retain heat and an ultra-lightweight DWR rip-stop face fabric that still provides full loft.

Design

The down-fill weight is one of the most critical factors when evaluating a jacket’s warmth. It determines how much insulation a jacket contains and how it compresses to create heat retention.

Generally, an excellent down jacket will have a high fill to total weight ratio. This means that most of the insulation’s weight goes down, compared to the importance of shell fabrics, zippers, and sewn-on logos.
