Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great style I bought this lovely down jacket in the sale. The smart style in black is perfect in a stretch fabric. I haven’t had a chance to wear being summer. I know it will be perfect when winter comes along.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice fit I am very happy with this jacket. It is a lovely shaped fit, especially for my size, a 16 and I don’t feel extra “padded” in it. The fabric is really nice, matt and not shiny. It is very warm but not thick and bulky

The sleeve of my jacket doesn’t seems to be well padded. It is especially thin (almost empty) on one sleeve near the elbow. Is this normal? 

Asked by: Freezepanda
If you have any concerns about the down dispersal in your jacket, please take it into your local Kathmandu store so that our team can take a look at it and advise.

Can I use this jacket to ski in? 

Asked by: RitzMelb
We would not recommend this jacket to ski in. We would recommend a jacket from our Styper range as our pick for snow sports! These are waterproof, have the snow skirts and other features designed to make your day on the mountain a breeze!

How does the length of this jacket compare to the Epiq?

Asked by: Berni
The Federate stretch down jacket is approx 3 cm shorter than the Epiq in each size. So for example for a size 10, Federate is 67 cm long and the Epiq is 70 cm long.
