The SUL (super ultralight) series garments are aimed at pushing weight as low as possible for a given fill amount, without compromising function. They are down sweaters in the strictest sense. Like a knit sweater, no zippers, no pockets, no drawcords, no linings, no webbing, just insulation in the form of down in a nylon shell.

Fill type – 900fp Hyperdry goose down

Fill weight (approximate) – 3.4oz (small), 3.8oz (medium)

Total weight (approximate) – 5.6oz (small), 6.4oz (medium)

The goal with the SUL down sweater 1.5 was to make the lightest jacket possible for solid 4 season use. It gets the same shell as the SUL .75 and SUL 1.1, except the baffle spacing is increased to 6″ to limit cold spots and maximize loft. Calculated loft is increased to 1.5. It’s incredibly warm with over 1.5″ of loft between baffles and very few cold spots. I estimate this as full winter level warmth. Comfort range well below freezing. It has a cinch at the neck and a cinch at the bottom hem to keep out drafts. Both cords are removable.

A puffy is most often used as an inactive layer for stops, at camp, or to help boost a sleep system. They don’t make for very good active layers since your sweat can easily compromise the down fill. This makes a zipper for ventilation a somewhat frivolous feature that can add a significant amount of weight and bulk. Pockets can be nice to have, but they often add a big chunk of weight and bulk and compromise the performance of a jacket by creating cold spots and by pulling insulation flat when there is weight in them. For those wanting pockets to warm hands I recommend adding a few inches to the sleeve to cover your hands. This is lighter than pockets and doesn’t compromise the overall warmth. All non-essential sewn through lines have been eliminated so the down can loft and cold spots are reduced. Simplicity and reduced weight and bulk are not the only benefits of all this. Leaving off many tedious features also reduces my labor and allows me to offer a very affordable jacket at an extremely low weight.

It’s meant to be used with a modular hood or head insulation, but can be built with an integrated hood on request.
