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.
This lightweight down jacket was designed for the Yukon Ultra Race where competitors may be facing temperatures down to -30°C (-22°F)*, but weight and space are at a premium. Now filled with our exceptional 950 down the Yukon Jacket is lighter than ever, but just as warm.
The remarkable weight and pack-down size of the Yukon make it ideal for lightweight mountaineering, high level trekking, cold races and long-distance hiking.
Weighing just 440g / 15.5oz complete with hood, it combines a water-resistant Ultrashell fabric outer with a lightweight MX fabric inner. Its box wall construction and 950 fillpower down boost its performance well beyond the rest of our ultralight clothing.
The handwarmer pockets are zipped to keep out blowing snow, the fleece lined collar seals out the cold, and there is a stretch drawcord in the hem. The insulated chest pocket keeps a GPS (or other battery-operated kit) both warm and easily available. The reflect zip pulls are a safety feature, improving night-time location.
This is not designed as a high mountain jacket like the Xero. But when the kit has to be ultralight and stitch-through jackets are just not warm enough, the Yukon can be the ideal choice.
*Note Temperature rating. Race competitors balance comfort against weight by a different scale to most other people. The Typical Operating Temperature (TOT) is the NORMAL rating for this jacket, while -30°C is the racers' rating.
