This jacket is now also available in custom sizes. Specify Body Width and Body Length independently to order a made-to-measure Primaloft jacket. This tailor-made service can cope with sizes from XXXS to XXXL and is ideal if your chest/waist to height and/or arm ratios differ from standard, ready-to-wear patterns.
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.
