Versatility, durability, warmth is Zanter's Down Vest in a nutshell. The experienced folks at Zanter sure know how to pack all of these qualities into a simple piece of outerwear with absolute zero compromises. If you're looking for a layer to keep you warm to the core while on the move, look no further.

Zanter's reputation for using the finest of materials in their garments is near-legendary in the Japanese outerwear realm. Not only does this vest feature a down Fill Power (FP) number of 800, the 4-layer outer shell construction guarantees unbeatable insulation. Zanter has managed to achieve all of this while keeping the aesthetic sleek and overall weight to a minimum. What's more, with the inclusion of handwarmer pockets and a double-secured front zipper+snap button opening, you'll be able to take on those chilly days with impunity.

Zanter is heralded as the first brand to produce Down wear in Japan. The first pieces were worn in 1956 by members of the Manaslu Expedition Corps as well as the Antarctic Observation Corps. Zanter has continued to produce the highest quality Japanese Down wear by selecting only the finest materials and using well-honed production methods. 

Locally sourced high-quality down feathers are extremely difficult to come by, at the most only 10g can be found on the chest area of a suitable Waterfowl. The quality of feathers is also greatly affected by breeding methods, environment, and feed during infancy. These carefully selected feathers then go through a thorough process of washing, drying, dehydration, sterilization, and dust removal which results in Down that not only has excellent heat retention properties but is also durable and sanitary.
