Description

This jacket is now also available in custom sizesSpecify Body Width, Body Length, and Arm Length independently to order a made-to-measure down 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 Omega is the warmest Jacket that PHD makes. An incredible refuge of a Jacket, the Omega is the choice for the very coldest mountains and the worst Polar conditions. A fully waterproof outer protects the down on long and arduous expeditions.

HS2 is a lightweight, wind- and water-proof, breathable fabric that’s the first layer of protection in truly inhospitable conditions. A huge depth of down insulation and a differential cut designed to allow full lofting delivers an immensely high-performing Jacket.

Five expedition pockets, a large helmet-compatible hood, Velcro-adjusted cuffs and cordlocks at the hem allow complete lockdown in whiteouts, and the option of filling with 950 down pushes the Typical Operating Temperature down to -59°C.

Tempest outer fabric remains an option for trips where extra durability is the most important factor.

As used by Sir Ranulph Fiennes on the first Trans-Antarctic Winter Expedition - the Coldest Journey, the BBC's Tribe team in Siberia, by the Ice Warrior team, and many others.

Technical

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.

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.

Waterproof HS2 outer fabric (weight: 88 gsm)

HS2 is PHD's high-spec 2-layer ripstop for waterproof outers on our down. It is light enough to be the optional taped shell on our sleeping bags and tough enough for expedition use in our Omega clothing. HS2 is completely waterproof (when the seams are taped) and offers excellent breathability.

Tough Waterproof Tempest outer fabric (weight: 160gsm)

A technically advanced waterproof breathable material. 100% Nylon. Good abrasion and tear resistance, yet offering high flexibility for such a tough material.

Notes:

  • Down Jackets are sized to fit over thermal underwear & fleece.

  • The arms of our outdoor jackets are designed to be long enough to keep your wrists warm when your arms are extended horizontally (when using trekking poles, for example) or when you are reaching above yourself (when climbing, for example). In this respect the arm lengths of our jackets differ from street/fashion jackets.
