Congratulations, Dark Peak, you’ve done something I didn’t think was possible: you’ve made me like cold weather. When I wear this jacket, I feel like I’m actually wearing a hug from Santa Claus. Bring on the winter weather, baby.
Dark Peak was kind enough to send me one of their NESSH Lightweight Down Jackets in return for some honest feedback. I’ve been loyal to my North Face ThermoBall for about 8 years now, and I’ve been hesitant to make the shift to real down despite its high warmth to weight ratio due to its vulnerability to moisture. Dark Peak promises to combat this with its water resistant DWR coating, so I figured I would give it a spin.
