A perpetual favorite in the Feathered Friends line, the Volant marks the transition from sewn-through construction to a fully baffled garment. These baffles, combined with high lofting 900+ fill power down, Pertex® Shield® XT waterproof/ breathable fabric, and reinforced sleeves and shoulders creates an incredibly warm, durable, and reliable jacket. Used extensively by the climbing rangers on Rainier, the Volant Jacket is the Feathered Friends recommendation for Northwest summit attempts, chilly ascents in South America, smaller peaks in Alaska, and the lower Himalaya. 


Great For: Mountaineering, Winter Camping, Ice Climbing, General Cold Weather Use

The Best!!

I had not planned on purchasing this because I had an older version of this garment (around 2010) that I sold in 2014. However, while visiting the store and trying it on, it was a tad more sleek than the older version and not quite as burly. The older Volant was a tad too much of a good thing. Essentially, it was overkill. The latest iteration achieves the same thing, yet it is more flattering, better fitting, and just as warm with the 900 goose fill. The older version had 850 or 800 goose fill. I can't recall but I do remember looking like a large blue marshmallow. Regardless, this jacket is a home run for the purpose it serves...staying warm whiles standing relatively still on the pitch, belaying, camping, having your friends admire your goods, or just battling the cold a$$ weather. My advice, buy one!

Volant Down Jacket

This is my second Volant Down Jacket. My first jacket survived over 10 years of heavy use before finally wearing out. After researching replacement jackets the Feathered Friends volant stood out as the best choice for design, durability, warmth and made in USA.

Amazing jacket - runs a bit small!

I bought this as a gift for my husband, he is a pretty standard medium but the large in this jacket was the right fit for him for adequate room for layering. It's a truly amazing jacket - he especially loves the durable outer on the arms.

Second down jacket

I have been waiting for this jacket for a year. It is my second one and we’ll worth the wait. I bought my first one from the first store in Seattle and wore it out.
