Description

A special version of our superb Wafer Vest, specifically redesigned for our Mountain Marathon collection and made in a water-resistant fabric.

One of the smallest, lightest packages of warmth we offer. Full zip front with two zipped handwarmer pockets, all at 150gm and fitting into our tiny half-size stuff sac. The Wafer Vest will fit snugly under any of our down jackets -- even the Minimus or the Yukon -- for a welcome boost of insulation.

Only available until 31st October 2019. 24% reduction on standard pricing.

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.
