Nigel Cabourn short down puffa: cool up north

You might think that one puffa is much like any other and in some respects you would be correct. But when it comes to Nigel Cabourn you can expect that little bit more. Such as a design inspired by some key moment in adventuring history and the kind of manufacturing that only British craftsmen can deliver.

So the short down puffa is manufactured from Norwegian cotton canvas, has a goosedown filling, is trimmed with a sheep collar, and has a detachable fur trim hood.

It has a yolk of leather (one detail we'll be seeing a lot more of this year) and leather arm patches for when you're sliding down that mountain with nothing but your elbows for brakes.  Factor in drawstrings in both hood and hem, wood toggles, two side pockets and elastic cuffs and you can see why Cabourn makes clothes which will last you a lifetime.

Available at Present.
