Description

This bespoke down jacket is available in 125 different size combinationsSpecify Body Width, Body Length, and Arm Length independently to order your made-to-measure down jacket. This tailor-made service can cope with sizes from XXXS to XXXL and is ideal if your chest/waist to arm and/or chest/waist to height ratios differ from standard, ready-to-wear patterns. As this item is made to a customer's own specifications it is clearly personalised and therefore can not be returned or exchanged. This Jacket is also available in standard sizes (with a shorter dispatch time).

 

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.

Weighing only 460gm (16oz) complete with hood, it has the superb fabric combination of water-resistant Drishell outer and superlightweight MX inner, but box wall construction and extra fill of 950 down boost its performance well beyond the rest of our Ultralight clothing. The handwarmer pockets are zipped to keep out blowing snow and there is a stretch drawcord in the hem.

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.

Please note: as this jacket is made-to-measure to your own specifications, it will take approximately 45 days to be manufactured ready for dispatch. Customer Discounts cannot be applied to Custom Sized clothing.

Technical

Water-resistant Drishell outer fabric (weight: 54 gsm)

Ripstop nylon with an ultralight coating: achieves total windblock, along with high breathability and superior water resistance. Superbly efficient for a very light overall fabric weight.

Superlight MX fabric (weight: 32 gsm)

A mini-ripstop nylon with excellent tear strength, MX is the pick of the superfine 15 denier downproof materials. We have tested lighter fabrics, but most have had significant drawbacks, while our confidence in MX is based on several years of extensive use in both our ultralight and our high mountain gear.

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.

In this respect the arm lengths of our jackets differ from street/fashion jackets.

Reviews

"Many thanks for the jacket that you supplied me for the Yukon Arctic Ultra. [It] performed perfectly in temperatures down to -35C. The light weight and small size was also a huge help and helped me gain second place in the race. I ... am now the second fastest person over the course and the fastest European."
Dr Stuart Gillet (wearing a prototype Yukon jacket).

"Without PHD kit I would have been toast."
Jacob Hastrup 2nd place in Yukon Arctic Ultra 100 mile race.

"Thanks again for getting the Yukon jacket too me in time for my expedition to Peru, as you would expect it performed flawlessly - it came in handy when we had to make an unplanned bivi at 6000m."
Lloyd Betsworth.

"I used a Yukon down jacket with Gore-tex outer on the expedition. It packs down small (half the size of my previous jacket), it's great for early starts and when the snow starts falling."
Dominic Southgate - Imperial College Reru Valley Expedition (Zanskar Himalaya, India).

"I was leading really thrutching pitches in the dark late at night and was sure I would have ripped it to shreds, but not a scratch."
Jon Griffith on his one day ascent of the Bonatti Vaucher on the Jorasses north face using a PHD Yukon Down Jacket in Drishell fabric.

"For more serious winter outings I use PHD's Yukon Down Jackets. PHD make the best lightweight kit on the market. I just wouldn't go Munro bagging in winter without mine. It's fab."
Phil Newby.

"Ben was impressed with the Yukon Jacket I bought for him. In fact, we ended up fighting over it on more than one occasion! Again, simplicity of design, total warmth, amazing lightness and quality of manufacture was what made it stand out from the rest."
James Garrett.

"Thank you for the Yukon jacket! It fits super, is warm and nicely made."
Mark van Onna.

"Just wanted to thank you for the prompt delivery of my Yukon down jacket. It is fantastic and I have worn it constantly since it arrived."
Lise Cooper.
