Description

A special version of our superb Wafer Jacket but specifically redesigned for our Mountain Marathon Collection and made in water-resistant fabric. 

A super-light jacket that offers much more in camp than a fleece. It's lighter, warmer and windproof, as well as taking up one third as much space in your pack. You could squash twenty Wafer jackets into your 20 litre day-sac: try that with twenty fleeces!

Lightweight zipped front, hand warmer pockets, and water-resistant Ultrashell fabric are design specifics for the chilly nights and damp dawns of the autumn and winter seasons.

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.

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.

Reviews

"Performed brilliantly. The hood was a great fit and tight enough to the face to keep off wind. Absolutely incredible warmth / weight ratio, could not be more impressed. Minimal packed bulk meant it could be kept in a rucksack pocket for easy access when temperatures dropped. I honestly cannot suggest improvement for this product. Having lost my waterproof jacket during a sudden evacuation of high camp I found myself descending in white out snowing conditions expecting to have to stop and switch to other gear soon enough but the water resistance held for the entire day. Incredible stuff and a great addition to any winter arsenal."
