Description

Special offer for January & February only: £425 (full price £563). Jacket won't be available after February 2020.

White-out blizzard conditions on the plateau can turn to rain lower down the mountain, so our Snowline down jacket – shelled in our waterproof, breathable HS2 fabric with fully taped seams, along with water-resistant Aquaguard zips – works to seal out the worst of these changeable conditions. The fully sized helmet compatible hood, insulated hand warmer and stash pockets, the two-way front zip and the reflective zip pulls all increase the performance for winter mountaineers, ice climbers, trekkers and ski tourers.

Just as useful ‘out and about’ while off the mountains, the ‘grab and go’ nature of a waterproof down jacket is really handy, particularly to those of us in Northern Europe with our damp winters.

The fully taped HS2 fabric has a Hydrostatic Head of 30,000mm and a Moisture Vapour Permeability of 20,000g/m2/24h making it highly waterproof and breathable, and has proved itself to be outstanding on the biggest and coldest mountains of the world. And the YKK Aquaguard water-resistant zips – backed by an insulated under-baffle – work to minimize air and water ingress.

Lighter than carrying a separate down jacket and a full mountain waterproof jacket, the Snowline packs down into its own stuff sac to take up minimum space in your rucksack. 

Please note: If you order a custom-sized version of this jacket it will take longer (approximately 45 days) to be manufactured ready for dispatch. Custom-sized versions of this jacket are not returnable and customer loyalty discount cannot be applied.

This jacket is 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. 


Technical

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.

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.

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.
  • Shell Jackets are sized to fit over thermal underwear & fleece or light down clothing (e.g. Minimus Jacket): to cover thick down clothing, go up one size.
  • 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.
