Westcomb Blaze Down Shirt

Westcomb’s new Blaze down shirt fits just as well at the local watering hole as it does on the mountain. For warmth, the Blaze comes packed with premium 900-fill goose down paired with a Pertex Quantum shell to keep you dry. Pertex Quantum is used on a number of rain shells and, when paired with a down-insulated layer, makes for a truly versatile piece. The shirt comes in an “alpine” fit, which means that it is cut slimmer for layering under a heavier shell.
