Merrell Wildgarst Down Puffer


Winds kick up, the temps drop – and you’re scrambling up glaciers along the Austral Highway as if it’s a summer day.  Wildgarst, with practical 600-fill power from Allied Down, joined the cadre of grab-and-go pieces  in Aysen during Active Junky’s recent trip to Chile.  Elastic collar, cuffs and hem were enough to slough off chilly breezes as the DWR (Durable Water Resistant) finish was sufficient for most scenarios.  Center back length of 29” made it better for standing and walking  outside.  Merrell translated backcountry performance to urban attitude with the quilted pattern in an affordable piece from a trusted brand.

Tester Quote: “Wore it until I needed to test something else – and then put it right back on.  Chilly mornings and sunset photo sessions were my favorite times of day with Wildgarst. The moderate fill power wasn’t a barrier to generating reliable warmth during our trip.”
