Description

Wafers are ultralight down clothing from PHD. Real outdoor gear which will add a raft of choices to your gear selection.

The natural complement to the Wafer Jacket. Cosy camp gear, which will boost the warmth of your sleeping bag too. Fits into our new half-size stuff sac.

This is the ideal warmer for spring or autumn camping, when that cold little evening wind makes the sunny afternoon a distant memory. And if the night's a bit colder than you expected, keep the Wafer Trousers on inside your bag: a definite booster, particularly if you've got the Wafer Jacket on too.

  • Ideal companion in a cool camp, bothy, or hut.
  • Pack without noticing the weight (or the bulk).
  • Midlayer to boost warmth: warmer than a fleece weighing more than twice as much, and windproof too.
  • Add performance to your sleeping bag.

Dispatch time: As with all PHD products, these are made to order and by hand. We estimate it will take us around 4 to 6 weeks to make and dispatch sale orders. During busy periods it may take a little longer.

 


 



 

Technical

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.

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.
