This separate review provides additional descriptive and performance information on the GoLite Demaree Canyon Jacket and Anorak. Read our article Ultralight Three-Season Down Jackets State of the Market Report 2010 for a state-of-the-market analysis and comparative specifications and performance for a range of ultralight down jackets.

GoLite will be back in the three-season down jacket category in fall 2010 with the introduction of their new Demaree Canyon Jacket and Anorak. These new garments, in men's and women's versions, feature the new Pertex Microlight Eco shell fabric, which is 100% recycled polyester. They’re sharp looking and eco-friendly, but how well suited are they for backpacking?


When GoLite product designers created the new Demaree Canyon garments, it’s clear that their primary goals were to make them attractive and eco-friendly. Men’s and women’s versions of both garments have a lot of stylistic quilting, and recycled fabrics made of polyester are preferentially used. The shell fabric on both garments is Pertex Microlight Eco, which is 1.4 oz/y2 (47 g/m2) 100% recycled ripstop polyester with DWR.
