Following the main design features of our popular Yukon Jacket, the Yukon Pullover has box walls throughout, water-resistant Drishell outer fabric and 950 down, offering a distinct step up in warmth from the Ultra and Minimus Pullovers.

Technical

Water-resistant Drishell outer fabric (weight: 54 gsm)

Ripstop nylon with an ultralight coating: achieves total windblock, along with high breathability and superior water resistance. Superbly efficient for a very light overall fabric weight.

Superlight MX fabric (weight: 32 gsm)

A mini-ripstop nylon with excellent tear strength, MX is the pick of the superfine 15 denier downproof materials. We have tested lighter fabrics, but most have had significant drawbacks, while our confidence in MX is based on several years of extensive use in both our ultralight and our high mountain gear.

950 Fillpower Down

A newcomer to our range. European goose of rare quality. A high value alternative at the top levels of performance. More on our down insulation.

Sizing

Standard clothing sizing chart

Weight shown is for medium (M) size.

The PHD Sizing Chart below is based on measurements without clothing, exactly the way you would buy a shirt, a sweater or a pair of trousers. A 42" (107cm) chest means that your bare chest uninflated measures 42". Inside Arm is measured from armpit to wrist-bone and Inside Leg from crutch to ankle bone. If you find that you fall between (or across) these sizings, please contact us and we will quote you for modifications needed. Modifications cannot be made to sale items, bargain box items or other products not offered at full price. And if you are supplying us with your measurements, it is always useful for us to know your height, even when you are only buying a jacket.

Reviews

Backpacking Light - Recommended

"In wind and snow, I found the Yukon provided superb protection from the elements. While skiing on frigid days with a biting wind, the Yukon kept me toasty warm. I deliberately wore it as an outer layer on snowy and rainy days to test its water resistance; it stayed completely dry inside, and the shell fabric did not wet out. The Yukon is a balancing act of durability, functionality, warmth, fit, and weather resistance ... from a mountaineer's perspective, it is spot on."
Will Rietveld, Backpacking Light.

"Some feedback on the Yukon pullover which we both purchased prior to our annual three month summer alpine trip. Over our months in the Alps we used the Yukon both as our emergency spare belay jacket and as an ultra-light bivvy option. The Yukon smocks performed well above our expectations. The Yukon's warmth to weight ratio was really impressive. So much so that we used it on its own as an ultra-light bivvy (with a half Karrimat, bivvy bag and legs stuffed into our VR smocks and rucksacks!). For high altitude rock and ice routes we often used the Yukon smocks instead of our lightweight alpine sleeping bags and this saved us almost a kilo of weight each! We spent several nights at sub-zero around 4,000 metres with just thermals under the Yukon and yet our upper bodies remained comfortably warm."
R.W. and F.C. (both International Mountain Leaders).

"First of all, I must say that I am extremely satisfied with this and other clothing from PHD. After crossing Greenland, being on Baffin, and living an active life in the Northern Part of Norway in the Lyngen alps (also as an semipro guide - hiking peaks in the winter), I must say that I've found my supplier of warm and practical clothing."
Frode H., Norway.

"What an amazing piece of kit! Can't believe how light it is. The workmanship and attention to detail is total quality."
Gareth L., Cardiff.

"The Yukon Pullover arrived today, right before Christmas. And it's great! Can't wait to get it out in the cold ..."
Max Olesko, Austria.

"The Yukon is given an operating temperature of -15 ... I've only had mine since summer and worn it in the UK so far but it's toasty. Last weekend we camped out on Aran Benllyn. Through the evening the temperature in the porch showed about -7 or -8 and I was warm in the tent in a baselayer and the Yukon and some ... softshell trousers ... I don't think I'd reached its limit."
Matt C. on Outdoorsmagic Forum.

"As my first PHD purchase, I am impressed."
