Description

Wafers are the new ultralight down clothing from PHD. Real outdoor gear which will add a raft of choices to your gear selection. Trousers, Jacket, Vest, and Socks. Each of them some of the tiniest and lightest we have ever made.

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.

Note: Fabrics as thin as 10X do not stand up well to direct abrasion, so we do not recommend our Wafer gear as actual climbing outerwear. But for all its thinness 10X is amazingly downproof and windproof and with reasonable care will go on giving you good service for years.

These trousers are part of PHD's 'Ready Made' range. In stock and ready to ship within 5 working days.

New! Now also available in custom sizes: specify waist and inside leg sizes independently.

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.
