Rondoy Down Jacket (sale)

The jackets were incredibly warm and light, equally suited to ensure we were warm when climbing and even when static, melting snow, in the advance camps.

Description:

The Rondoy Jacket meets the needs of a wide range of mountaineers, climbers and high altitude trekkers. This version, made in waterproof HS2 fabric, is on offer at £193 less than our standard version.

A lightweight mountaineering and trekking jacket, the Rondoy is designed for climbing, mountaineering, and trekking in the Himalayan six-thousanders, Alpine winters, as well as Andean peaks from Rondoy through to Fitz Roy.

Box-wall construction is used to achieve the -20°C temperature rating. The (untaped) waterproof and wind-resistant HS2 outer fabric gives excellent protection to the down in damp, snowy conditions. 

Two hand-warmer pockets at the waist, one chest pocket for stashing and quick access to your camera, a helmet-compatible hood, and adjustable Velcro cuffs make this an exceptionally high-specification mountaineering Jacket.

Dispatch time: As with all PHD products, these are made to order and by hand. We estimate it will take us around 4 to 6 weeks to make and dispatch sale orders. During busy periods it may take a little longer.


 

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.


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 a 2-layer laminate, a high-spec option for the outer layer of our insulated gear. This ripstop fabric strikes an excellent balance between lightness and durability. It is light enough for our Belay tops and tough enough for expedition use in our Omega clothing, while the Kappa clothing makes full use of both its qualities. HS2 is completely waterproof (when the seams are taped) and offers excellent breathability. (Weight: 88gsm).


Reviews relate to our standard Rondoy jacket

"The jackets were incredibly warm and light, equally suited to ensure we were warm when climbing and even when static, melting snow, in the advance camps."
Jonathan Phillips, Imperial College, Obra Valley Expedition (GARHWAL HIMALAYA, INDIA).

"I summited Elbrus with the help of your Rondoy jacket - made the 17 hour summit day very comfortable indeed!"
— Leigh Peterson.

"Tweaked for this year with two waist-level hand-warmer pockets making it a little more versatile than it's harness-friendly predecessor. Good news for high altitude trekkers taking in the night sky from outside the tea house we reckon. There's also a new two-way main zip to allow for easier use with a climbing harness."
