Also available in custom sizes. We make clothing to order, so if you’re not a standard size we can make it to fit. To order a non-standard custom size, select the Custom Sizing tab, choose your body width, and then the body/arm lengths, shorter or longer, that work for you. A custom size takes us a little longer (typically two weeks longer) to make and, because it’s personalized, it’s non-returnable and our customer loyalty scheme can’t be applied.
At 125grams, the WaferLite shirt just pips our WaferLite Jacket by 5grms to become the lightest down top in the world.
The 7-denier, 7X fabric provides total windblock, and our unique 1000 fill-power down ensures the most weight-efficient insulation. All this means this is a wonderfully flexible layering piece with the highest warmth-for-weight performance possible from down.
Packed into a tiny stuff sac, the K Series WaferLite shirt is for those looking to shave every possible gram. It's less than a third the weight of a mid-weight fleece and warmer too (and don't forget it's totally windproof).
This is not high mountain gear nor is it ideal for doing dirty car repairs (fleece has its uses). But for the pure gift of warmth from something you could literally stuff in your pocket it has no rivals.
The features list is short: it's what's not featured (such as pockets) that makes the Waferlite such an individual piece -- and ultimately our lightest down-filled top.
- Pack without noticing the weight or bulk
- Outer layer or mid-layer warmth
- Warmer, lighter, and smaller pack size than a fleece jacket and 100% windblock too.
