Also available in custom sizes. We make clothing to order, so if you’re not a standard size we can make it to fit. To order a non-standard custom size, select the Custom Sizing tab, choose your body width, and then the body/arm lengths, shorter or longer, that work for you. A custom size takes us a little longer (typically two weeks longer) to make and, because it’s personalized, it’s non-returnable and our customer loyalty scheme can’t be applied.
The Kappa is a truly versatile crossover jacket, completely at home on high Himalayan treks, Alpine ascents, Scottish winter routes or any active cold weather sport – one has already gone off dog-sledding in the Arctic, a function we didn't anticipate.
Excellent protection is provided by the HS2 waterproof outer* and quick body warmth by Primaloft Gold® insulation, which will retain much of its insulation when it's wet. It also works well when you're already soaked and simply want a warm-up jacket to shift the chill.
The Kappa's two zipped handwarmers make it a pleasure to wear round camp, while the helmet-size hood and the two chest pockets (one out & one inside) are the extra technical features climbers need.
Insulation is Primaloft Gold® (133gsm quality in body, 100gsm in sleeves).
Mate with our Kappa trousers for a complete system!
* - Please note: although the outer fabric is waterproof, the stitch lines are un-taped for lightness. So, although the outer will shed rain and snow, in a heavy downpour water can penetrate the stitching. However, the Primaloft insulation retains much of its insulation if wet. As always in the mountains, if there is a possibility of rain, carry full specification waterproofs.
