The Nuptse 2 is made out of polyester faille taffeta/Bluesign® Approved Fabric and the Nuptse is constructed of plain weave nylon.
The polyester faille taffeta weighs in a little heavier bringing the total weight of the Nuptse 2 almost a full ounce heavier than the Nuptse. The Nuptse 2 weighs 25.04 oz while the Nuptse weighs only 24.7 oz.
Both versions of the Nuptse sport that classic puffy thickness and style and are made with 700 fill goose down. They both have interior pockets that they stow into and have reinforcement materials on the shoulders (great for when wearing a backpack). Neither have a hooded option.
Looking for something warmer or a bit more waterproof, check out the Valandre Split S - Women's. Too expensive? The North Face Aconcagua jacket - Women's is a better price with similar functional qualities.
