Moncler Jacket Review – Is It Worth It?

Should you get your hands on the Moncler Jacket?

More of our IS IT WORTH IT Series, here:

So let’s look at the jacket, we bought two of their more iconic styles which are short and hip length puffy with a shiny satin finish. One is red, the other one is blue which also happen to be their brand color. With the finish and the colors, Moncler is intentionally bold in an area where usually navy and black solid dominate the landscape. Moncler jackets are known for their down filling which is very puffy and very insulating and warm. On their website, they claim to have a superior expertise in the down realm.

All the down fitters using their jackets are DIST certified, that’s a protocol that claims to trace traceability quality and origin of the down. Interestingly, the trade market DIST is actually owned by Moncler so it’s not an independent agency but it’s their own quality control seal, therefore, the quality claims of the down is actually certified by a subsidiary of Moncler and not by an outside third party.

They claim to use superior downs yet they use surprisingly few numbers to back those claims up. They claim that their down cluster content is at least 90% with 10% being other feathers. Now, the higher the pure down content, the more insulating the jacket and the higher the quality the jacket will be. To measure the quality of different down jacket compositions, there’s something called the fill power. Fill power means as much as the volume occupied by the down feathers. An object with a higher fill power takes up more space meaning more air is trapped and therefore, the jacket is more insulating. Essentially, it means that you get more warmth while maintaining the same weight.

Next up, let’s talk about the shell which is one of the iconic things of Moncler. It’s a very dense nylon that is extremely lightweight and only weighs in at 33 grams per square meter. It’s also woven in a very fine way so you don’t end up with feathers or down poking through the shell. This high density lacquered nylon that is shiny is something that is pretty unique to Moncler and not many other brands use it. So if you would like it, it’s a strong reason to invest in the Moncler jacket.

Next up, let’s talk about the fit. It’s quite boxy and simple and it makes you look like a Michelin Man. The sizing is quite strange, they use a numbering system and the jacket I’m wearing here is size 5 even though that corresponds an extra-extra-large, I would say it’s more like a large to extra large in other brands.

Because Moncler jackets are so expensive, they’re faked all over the place and in order to verify that you have a genuine product, Moncler jackets have a barcode on the inside jacket. You can simply scan it with a scanner app which gets you to a website and once you sign up, it’ll tell you what name the jacket should be and what style and if it’s a different style, you know it was copied and it’s a fake or if the number is wrong, it will just tell you to get in touch with support and you know what’s wrong or a fake, as well.

So with a company with its origins in France that moved to Italy, where are the jackets made? According to the label, they’re made in Romania which is definitely one of the lowest cost production countries in Europe with a GDP of under 10,000 dollars per capita.

In terms of weight, it doesn’t tell you exactly how heavy it is but our jackets are really lightweight, just take a look. So if they’re lightweight, do they keep you warm?

Prathistha Singh says:

The 30gsm fabric is too thin. No abrasion resistance outer fabrics. Can get torn as it’s not too stop. Your advice is right seeing the cost.

Bo Rerun says:

Tanweer Majid says:

Can you recommend a heavy overcoat? Made a video for that? Great video sir.

Duke Dog Tom says:

Despite looking ridiculous and being quite expensive, if you’re an active outdoorsman in a very cold environment, theres nothing better. Best jacket money can buy for cold weather

Bootney Lee says:

Being that it looks like an inflated trash bag, my first inclination is….no.

Real Bulldogs says:

The picture of Daniel Craig that you showed – he was wearing CG not Moncler :p

Cloud 420_life says:

I’ll stick with the northface but I like the way they look

Zenon says:

I’d easily spend $500 on it, but $1500 is way too much… I’m sure the retail stores mark up the prices by 90%

sdemosi says:

Arcteryx all day long. I’d feel embarrassed to be seen in one of these but if you need a down expedition jacket then go for PHD. I compared this to my Arcteryx Cerium SV at the Moncler store and the Moncler is an inferior coat. My Haglofs Venjan is a better jacket, has the super puffy look and is about a 3rd of the cost & wonderfully Swedish.

markv1 says:

It’s ALL about that little label…. But, personal experience – I got a competitor jacket made by Herno, another expensive Italian brand that does lots of down jackets and it turned A LOT worse. They had 100% down vs. Moncler’s 90% and they were lighter but the issue was the shell. The shell and stitching were subpar and after about one season of wear, I saw down sticking out at a few places and one of the puff panel had a tiny hole… My Moncler is perfectly fine after 3 years of wear – no down sticking out, no holes, the puffiness is still perfect.

Ken Lynch says:

Snag and pop jackets

Stephen Shields says:

The birds are tortured.

Donat says:

Could you do a video on cheap jackets that are similar to expensive ones?

IDK IJS says:

Nobody cares about how to pronounce them lol

Isak Gernersson says:

Review the Parajumpers

Hagen Herrmann says:

consumer goods are not “investments”. This term is so overused that it comes across as sounding silly.
An investment pays you to own it. I will eat my shoe if someone can explain to me how this jacket puts $ in my pocket.
