Hi there, is this jacket ok so sub-zero weather? -5 to -10 degree Celsius. Thank you. 

Asked by: tnpc
Yes this jacket would be a big help in -5 to -10 degrees, we often recommend for Alpine conditions to use a down as a mid layer, with base layers underneath and a waterproof/windproof layer on top.

Would this be suitable to wear as a mid-layer under a shell jacket (with high waterproof rating) for skiing in Japan / Canada?

Asked by: Andrew S
Yes, it would be suitable to keep you warm as a mid-layer, and as long as your waterproof shell is tight enough around the waist to be sure to not let any snow in then it should be fine. The main reason why I would suggest one of our Styper Snow Jackets is that they are designed for the snow and they have a snow skirt to keep the snow out.

Is this suitable for enter days? 10 degrees or less...

Asked by: Jess3545
This really depends on what you wear underneath. This should be suitable to keep you warm, however, the Heli range is our lightest down range so if you are after something with a lot more warmth I would opt for something from the Epiq range or the XT range

How do you wash it?

Asked by: Cobber_m8
1. Machine-wash your down jacket on a gentle cycle at 30 degrees °C. 2. Carefully remove your down jacket and lay flat to dry on a clothing rack. 3. Put it in the tumble drier on a low heat. 4. Throw in two to three tennis balls, or Granger’s drying balls. 5. Gently fluff up the down jacket. For more in-depth instructions please use the search bar on the website and search 'how to was a down jacket' and this will come up with an article and a video all about how to properly care for your down jacket.
