The Minimus Down Pullover has been updated. The full-width front handwarmer pocket is now zipped, and it’s grown a zipped quick-access chest pocket too, ideal for a smartphone or camera.

Elasticated panels have been added at the sides, increasing the insulating performance by creating a closer, warmer fit.

Still exceptionally warm and comfortable, still perfect for minimalist mountaineering and backpacking, only now it’s even lighter.

This special sale version is £118 less than the standard Minimus Pullover.

 

Technical

Water-resistant Drishell Plus outer fabric (weight: 80 gsm)

Drishell Plus is an even more heavily proofed version of our water-resistant Drishell fabric. Drishell Plus is a Ripstop Nylon fabric with a superb waterproof coating that achieves total windblock with good breathability and excellent water-resistance to protect the Down.

Lightweight M1 fabric (weight: 39 gsm)

Lightweight silky microfibre. This close-weave 20 denier fabric is fully downproof, but also light and flexible enough to allow the down full loft. A reliable performer that has been the basis for much of our lightweight gear for some time. Order samples of this fabric & just pay the postage.

900 Fillpower Down

European goose down of very high quality. A truly excellent down with large clusters, consistent quality and lively long-term 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

Reviews are for standard version of our Minimus Pullover

"PHD Minimus pullover is a warm, cosy life saver! I have used this jacket continually throughout this winter and I can only say it is absolutely brilliant. It has become a permanent part of my kit wherever I am. It folds/squishes into a most ridiculous small space and bounces right back! It is warm and comfortable and above all light. Another fabulous design."
Jeremy Hastings, Islay Bush Craft.
