  • EMS Women's Icarus Down Jacket

    Lightweight and compressible, the toasty Icarus is stuffed with 850-fill goose down that features DownTek technology for warmth in wet or dry conditions.

    Features/Benefits:

    • The Icarus can be worn as a mid or exterior layer
    • Unlike traditional down, DownTek goose down is highly water resistant
    • DownTek treatment negates the drawbacks of down’s susceptibility to moisture by applying a micro-thin nano polymer to create a water-repellent insulation that actually floats on water
    • DownTek treatment does not affect the fill power or feel of the down
    • Jacket compresses into its own zippered pocket (about the size of a Nalgene bottle)
    • Soft Pertex nylon 20D shell fabric is ultralight, water resistant, and down proof (won’t leak feathers)
    • Adjustable hood with fleece lined collar for comfort against the skin
    • Two hand pockets with zippered closures

    Fiber Content: Shell: 100% nylon, Lining: 100% nylon, Insulation: 850-fill goose down
    Country of Origin: Imported

              I wanted to be able to layer a bit with this jacket. In order to get a looser fit and room through the chest I ordered large. It was a bit snug at the hip. Not good for layering. A larger size would have been too big in the top. I am 5'3" 145. Body types are all over the place. Preferences for fit are the same. Had this jacket worked for me I would not have returned it.

                    Love it, only downside is the down clumps are noticible through the fabric.

                      This jacket is very light and very warm. I wore it this morning with a baselayer and a thin wool sweater and was warm in -12F weather. I love love love the hood.

                      The armpit fit is very strange, though. Despite the fact that my body measurements are at the small end of "Medium" according to the size chart, the armpits on the medium are oddly tight. It just seems to be a feature of how the jacket is constructed. The rest of the jacket fits great, so I'm not going to return it for a large. I will just have to use thin layers underneath.

                      Super light, compressible

                      By Rebecca

                      from Redwood City, CA

                      Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Icarus Down Jacket:

                      This is a super light and compressible jacket. I can easily stuff it into my purse if I don't want to wear it. It seems pretty water resistant and pretty warm. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I was hoping it would be even thicker and warmer than it is. Even though it's 850 fill, it's still fairly thin, and I might get a warmer jacket for the coldest part of the year. I could even put a warmer jacket over this one and use the two layers. Regardless, I am happy with this purchase. It is well-made and is currently being worn happily by me every day.

                                  Climbed Mt. Liberty Christmas Day and the temp was 5 degrees. Brought a warmer jactket in case this light weight jacket wasn't warm enough but was pleasently surprised. With layers I was amply warm and I loved the hood, which came in very handy at the top.

                                        I tried the highest-rated and well-priced equivalent from a famous competitor, but there were issues with its construction and fit. When I got this, I thought I'd be settling for less. Boy, was I wrong. The jacket is incredibly lightweight and supple but oh, so warm! I am just thrilled. I especially like the brushed nylon neck liner, and slightly longer sleeves that don't creep up my arms when I reach out. It may run a little small - I usually take a medium or large, depending on fit, and I ordered this in XL. It still fits closely but not snugly, just the way you'd want a jacket like this to fit. (I'm 5'7", 170#.)

                                            The jacket seems true to size. I usually take a small, and this fits well with a sweater and shirt under it, which is what I wanted. The XS looked nice in the mirror but was too tight to be practical on the trail. I love the light weight of this jacket, yet it seems to be just as warm as my old, poofy down jacket. I wore it recently in a sleet storm and really appreciated the size and style of the hood. I love that the jacket zips up high, creating a neck gaiter effect for extra warmth when needed.

                                            This jacket is excellent! I love it, it fits great, it looks stylish and the hood is a huge plus.
                                            I have always been impressed with EMS for making their women's clothing at the same high standard as their men's. the result is their women's line is just as technical and still stylish.
                                            The only thing this jacket doesn't have is an exterior chest stash pocket; for sunglasses or chapstick.
