Description

A lightweight mountaineering jacket, the Svalbard down jacket is designed for climbing, mountaineering, skiing and trekking in the ranges of the Himalayas, Andes and winter Alps.

The box-wall construction maximises the warmth of the exceptional 900 fillpower down. Untaped for lightness, the water-resistant Drishell outer gives good protection to the down in damp, snowy conditions. Five pockets and a helmet compatible hood make this an exceptionally high specification mountaineering Jacket.

Outside of this sale the Svalbard is only available from our Design Your Own Down Jacket collection where, in this configuration, it would cost £537.

£138 less than our standard version

Dispatch time: As with all PHD products, these are made to order and by hand. We estimate it will take us around 20 working days to make and dispatch sale orders. During busy periods it may take a little longer.

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. Order samples of this fabric & just pay the postage.

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.
