This separate review provides additional descriptive and performance information on the Eastern Mountain Sports Ascent Sector Down Sweater. 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.
The EMS Ascent Sector Down Sweater did not stand out when I discovered it on their website. The photo of the jacket is unflattering, and the listed weight is 13.96 ounces (397 g) for size Medium, which barely squeaks under our weight limit. I opted to include it in our down jacket roundup because it meets our criteria. The jacket was a pleasant surprise when it arrived. It's attractive, full-featured, puffy and warm, a great value, and significantly lighter than specified.
