Live Your Adventure®

Guide-built for cold-weather alpine climbing, this jacket is exceptionally warm, yet it's equally lightweight and packable. An ideal belay jacket, our guides depend on it for safety and comfort up high. Those qualities also make if perfect for travel in extreme cold. Thermally efficient, highly compressible, 800 fill StormDown maintains its insulating loft even in wet weather. Durable Pertex® ripstop nylon shell with StormRepel Super DWR finish that sheds moisture.

"This is a layer I've been missing, and it's extremely useful. It easily fits in a 40L pack with my full ski guide kit and doesn't add significant weight. I'll continue to use it as my go-to emergency layer and for breaks. I see it being a part of my guiding and personal kit throughout the winter."
—Erik Leidecker, Eddie Bauer Ski Guide

Awesome Jacket


Great Jacket. feels very warm and quality is excelent. I hope it will last for many seasons to come. I am 5'9", 183lbs male. Was swimming in size Medium, picked the Small which fits just right.




Where is the down?


Some people collect shoes, I collect down jackets to take out backpacking. This jacket has less loft than some of my 4-5oz fill jackets and weighs about a third more. In the field it is only moderately warm and not toasty enough for alpine environments in the shoulder seasons. Tested it out in a 50min downpour the jacket didn't wet through which was impressive. This jacket is great for the Pacific northwest rainy urban life but doesn't compete with other jackets for actual alpine use. To heavy, not warm enough, low quality down for the price. The fit was designed for someone is less than ideal shape. If you are looking for an athletic cut warm packable alpine jacket I would not recommend this one. I'm 6'2" 185lb and large was far to boxy and the medium fit but with tight shoulders and chest area.

Hits the sweet spot


I was looking for a down jacket with more insulation than the typical light puffy jacket (which I already have, e.g. downlight storm down), but not as extreme as expedition grade like the Peak XV. I initially bought the orange version at the beginning of last winter, but I agreed with reviewers that it looked terrible with the black lining and feathers showing through - so I returned it. At the time I didn't want black, because I like color on the slopes for safety reasons. But I have kept my eyes out for a similar jacket from other companies, to no avail. They either were wrong amount of insulation, extremely expensive, and/or lacking a good set of pockets in the right places. This jacket appeared temporarily in my size at the end of the season, and although black, I grabbed it on sale. I look forward to using it next season. I hope for other customers that they'll make it again, but in a color besides the orange - or at least with a lighter lining.

Awesome jacket for alpine environment


I've used this jacket for winter mountaineering and backcountry travel. Mostly when moving slow in very cold or when stopping. This jacket is super warm! It also stuffs nicely into my pack. I usually shove it down the back of my pack.It's also a good durable material. I've snagged it with ice tools and other sharp things and no damage. Unlike my lighter down jackets that shred at the sight of anything sharp.Lastly, the pockets are great and the internal mesh pockets are awesome for warming up gloves, spare cap, stove fuel, etc.Only thing I don't like is there isn't a bottom up zipper. But it's not a deal breaker. Usually I can tuck the front of the jacket into my harness.
