The sensation of immediate warmth is unsurpassed. The 1000-fill is so high-lofting, it puffs up as if a pump has been attached. Rare and wonderful.

Description

This bespoke down jacket is available in 125 different size combinations. Specify 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).


This K Series product has been created for one single reason, to take warmth-for-weight performance to the limit of what's possible. Unique 1000 down, super-light materials, and specific design features mean that the word Ultralight now applies to this wide range of gear that will take you to the Poles as well as on a Sahara Marathon. More on the K Series...

1000 down and 10X inner, the exceptional lightweight components of the K Series, have allowed us to make a down jacket at 240gm (8oz) which weighs less than most down vests. But make no mistake, this Ultra Jacket is a piece of real outdoor kit: the 1000 down gives surprising warmth inside the highly water-resistant and windproof Ultrashell outer.

It shares the pared-down design principles of the whole Ultra range: elastic at side-waist, light Lycra cuffs, waist-level front pockets, zipped inner security pocket, and a drop-tail back.

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

Ultrashell (weight: 40gsm)

The lightest of PHD's coated materials. This ripstop nylon provides complete wind block and good water resistance at minimal weight. Ultrashell gives an excellent upgrade to performance with very little weight penalty.

Ultralight 10X fabric (weight: 26 gsm)

10X, PHD's First 10 Denier Fabric. 9,000 metres of the yarn used to weave 10X weighs just 10g, that's about the same as a £1 coin! For all its thinness 10X is amazingly downproof and with reasonable care will go on giving you good service for years.

1000 Fillpower Down

This rarest of all downs we reserve for the K Series. European goose down of unique quality. 1000 provides the highest warmth-for-weight performance possible from down. More on our down insulation.

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.

Reviews

"The sensation of immediate warmth is unsurpassed. The 1000-fill is so high-lofting, it puffs up as if a pump has been attached; this is enhanced by wide baffles, which allow the down to expand so quickly. Weight is kept to a minimum through simple but effective design. Overall it was a dream to wear. PHD is the only company in the world using 1000-fillpower down in clothing and sleeping bags for expeditions and mountaineering: rare, indeed, and wonderful."
