La Sportiva Cham Down Jacket wins the backcountry editor's choice!
The USA magazine, one of the most important in the outdoor world, nomined the down Jacket in January issue.
The Cham down jacket combines very warm insulation with windproof and water repellent finishing. A key jacket to maintain warmth in the coldest conditions. This lightweight garment has all the features and will compress to stow in an internal pocket.
