Jack Wolfskin Men's Fairmont Stormlock Down Jacket - Black
The Jack Wolfskin Fairmont Jacket is designed to keep you warm in the very coldest of conditions.
Jack Wolfskin says:
If you’re the kind of guy who likes to take the long way home in the cold snow and the icy winter wind, the super warm and windproof FAIRMONT jacket is the jacket for you. When designing this jacket, the focus was on minimal weight and maximum insulation, which is why we opted for a high performance duck down fill.
You can feel the warmth as soon as you put the jacket on. The windproof outer fabric improves the insulation performance. The jacket can be worn with or without the hood. Just zip it off when you don’t need it.

Great things you should know about Storm Lock
Stormlock is Jack Wolfskin's Windproofing system which ensures you feel no breeze through the jacket whilst still allowing breathability. But what Jack Wolfskin do with this system is far superior to your average brand. They want their jackets to be able to be extremely durable to withstand german climates, so they re-enforce it with taffeta. This makes the jacket withstand rain pressure to around the 10,000 hiydro-static head mark.
This level of waterproofing contends with a lot of full waterproof jackets. The only reason they cannot call this waterproof is because of the seams between the baffles. If you were in a big down pour for a long period of time this is the weak point that if the jacket was so wet it started settling into these seams, then that is the only point where water could seap through but in general a walk on the school run or across the beach in the rain isn't going to get through the material itself from rainfall and is actually more likely to run off instead. The Stormlock system has a lot more to offer than just wind stopping. :-)
Aaron at Outback's thoughts on the Fairmont Jacket.
When this jacket came into stock I instantly took a liking to it, I had actually been looking to get a down jacket like this and had seen other's I liked coming in from other brands too before hand but I held back to see Jack Wolfskin's offerings first.
One of the main things that sold me with this jacket was the fact it has a removeable hood. All the others i liked either had a hood attached or no hood at all. So i was glad to see this great feature with Jack Wolfskin.
But the main reason for me which other brands just couldn't quite reach with the price point was the fact of it's outer layer being so tough and actually highly water resistant! Since i have owned it i haven't experienced any down poking out (which is very common in down jackets.) This is thanks to its taffeta outer layer gaurding the material from being peirced by the pointed end of the feathers. And i have been taking my kids to school each day in our consistent rainy weather in cornwall over the past few month's and had day's out on brisk walks without experiencing any water coming in. So for me it's a thumbs up and i just thought i would share my experience's with you too.
