    Wear on Earth NZ Made Down Jacket

    Wear on Earth NZ Made Down Jacket - Size Medium. Mint condition, never had it blood stained or dirty, only used as camp puffy.

    I have just come back from Korea where I used this jacket. Temps were around -10 to -20 degrees. Bloody cold but this jacket did awesome to keep me toasty.

    All the tan part of the jacket is waterproof, including the hood. I am replacing this jacket with another one of the same brand.

    FYI: Wear on Earth provides the NZ Military with down jackets & sleeping bags

    $280

    Hey there Iíve been thinking about these. What does it weigh and how small does it pack down? What sort of medium is it? The medium Kuiu jacket I got off you is a good fit close fitting but really comfortable. So maybe you could advise if fit for this would be good.

    I still wear medium in Kuiu. This WOE jacket fits the same but is more heavy duty however no comparison in warmth and very comfortable. It compresses down to about double the size of your Kuiu one.

    WOE jacket weights 1.2KG and comes with a compression sack which is used as a pocket on the inside of the jacket.

    If you're after a seriously cold weather down jacket then this is the one. I'm pretty sure Blair(owner) has a lifetime guarantee on his jackets too, you could send it back to his store in Chch for repair if needed. @WillB

    I'm in the same boat, I'm 6ft and 83KG. I float between Medium & Large. This medium is on the larger side I would say @muzr257

    I thought that the whole of the outer of the jacket is waterproof? Or is this a hybrid sort of thing?
