The Ultralight 850 has not been discontinued, but can be difficult to find at major retailers. For a hooded hydrophobic down jacket, check out the Brooks Range Mojave Down Jacket, a unisex jacket with the same technology. Or, find out what the Best Down Jacket for Women is.
We are intrigued by the Down-Tek treated hydrophobic down, but are unsure how durable the treatment is and what affect it has on the life of the down itself. Hopefully after more use we will have more definitive conclusions.
