With 900 Down

"From a mountaineer's perspective, it is spot on."
Will Rietveld, Backpacking Light

This lightweight pullover brings extra warmth when temperatures really start to dip. Following the main design features of our popular Yukon Jacket, the Yukon Pullover has box walls throughout, Drishell outer fabric and 900 down, offering a distinct step up in warmth from the Ultra and Minimus Pullovers. The full-width handwarmer pocket is zipped at both sides and contains a small zipped security pocket.

Please note: this pullover is, temporarily, also being offered in blue Drishell, not black as shown.

*Please note: we make our stuff sacs big enough to allow fairly easy stuffing rather than reducing the jacket to the tightest minimum. What air is left in the packed item will easily be compressed out of it, if you are squashing it into a small space in your rucsace. Tiny stuff sacs look impressive: but unless you are a sac-wrestling fan, fighting the gear into them day after day can be an unncecessary chore.

"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 a 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 extreamly satisfied with this and other clothing from PHD. After crossing Greenland, being on Baffin, and living an active life in the Nothern 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 its 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 it's limit." Matt C on Outdoorsmagic Forum

"As my first PHD purchase, I am impressed." John Burley on Outdoorsmagic Forum
