Description

This bespoke down jacket is available in 125 different size combinationsSpecify Body Width, Body Length, and Arm Length independently to order your 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 arm and/or chest/waist to height ratios differ from standard, ready-to-wear patterns. As this item is made to a customer's own specifications it is clearly personalised and therefore can not be returned or exchanged. This Jacket is also available in standard sizes (with a shorter dispatch time).

 

Redesign: The Rondoy Jacket has been upgraded with two specific changes to meet the needs of a wider spectrum of mountaineers, climbers, and high-altitude trekkers. Insulated hand warmer pockets have been added at waist level while still retaining a large insulated stash pocket at chest level for quick access while on the move. Additionally the baffle-covered front zip has been upgraded to a full length two way zip for easy access and adjustment to a climbers’ harness and rope system.

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 temperate rating.  The water- and wind-resistant Drishell 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.

Please note: as this jacket is made-to-measure to your own specifications, it will take approximately 45 days to be manufactured ready for dispatch. Customer Discounts cannot be applied to Custom Sized clothing.

Technical

Water-resistant Drishell outer fabric (weight: 54 gsm)

Ripstop nylon with an ultralight coating: achieves total windblock, along with high breathability and superior water resistance. Superbly efficient for a very light overall fabric weight.

Superlight MX fabric (weight: 32 gsm)

A mini-ripstop nylon with excellent tear strength, MX is the pick of the superfine 15 denier downproof materials. We have tested lighter fabrics, but most have had significant drawbacks, while our confidence in MX is based on several years of extensive use in both our ultralight and our high mountain gear.

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.

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.

"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."
