Ultralight down pullover

Built for use as mid-layer insulation, the ultralight Crux Proto Top offers impressive warmth for weight, stuffed with 60 g of premium 800FP ethically recovered Polish goose down to deliver vital warmth for mountain missions. The underarm area has no down insulation to minimise bulk and aid body temperature regulation. A half-zip and bound hem and cuffs complete the streamlined feature set, while the stitch-through construction with horizontal and vertical baffles prevents down migration, keeping your insulation precisely where it needs to be.

  • Down is a very resilient insulating material and, with basic care, any down jacket should last you a very long time. There are two simple rules to ensure longevity:
    1. Always store your jacket uncompressed in a dry, airy place
    2. Try to keep it as clean as possible to minimize washing (this ultimately damages the down)

    We highly recommend you hand-wash your down garment or, alternatively, use a professional service.

  • Sustainability through longevity - Crux guarantees all products for ten years from the date of purchase to the original customer. This guarantee is against defects in materials and craftsmanship. Should any flaw appear due to defective materials or craftsmanship, Crux will repair or replace the product.

    Ethically sourced materials - Crux only use Polish down which has been 100% ethically recovered.

  • Crux kit is designed for mountaineers, by mountaineers. Well, actually, by one mountaineer – since this specialist brand is entirely owned and operated by New Zealander Carol McDermott.

    Carol is a trained chemicals and materials engineer with a background in the outdoor industry. He’s also a highly experienced alpinist and climber, with ascents in most of the world’s great ranges to his name. That’s a pretty good CV for designing the world’s most uncompromising outdoor kit, focused purely on performance in the most demanding conditions. Which is why Crux use only the best quality materials, like Polish white goose down and premium Japanese fabrics, with stringent quality control that puts the big brands to shame.
