Silver Fork 750 Hooded Jacket

Packable, lightweight, and warm, you'll be glad to have Backcountry's Silver Fork 750 Down Jacket in your corner come the coldest winter days. This lofty piece can be worn alone, but also features a regular fit you can layer a shell over if the weather is wet and stormy. A toasty dose of premium goose down offers packable warmth you can pull out when temperatures drop during a belay or ski tour, and it comes with an integrated stuff sack for compact storage while you travel. The down-proof ripstop shell prevents the insulation from poking out, and is treated with a water resistant finish that causes light precipitation to bead up and roll off.

  • Lofty goose down offers toasty lightweight warmth
  • Water-resistant finish sheds light dirt and precipitation
  • Zippered pockets can stash essentials or warm your hands
  • Glove-worthy zipper pulls are easy to maneuver

Premium look, feel, and function

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

Athletic fit, runs true to size. Packs well in a bag, but I’ve had other down coats that seem to pack down smaller. Elastic around hood and wrists comfortable and snug. Kept me comfy standing around in bitter cold wind with a t-shirt underneath. I don’t regret purchase.

so fresh so clean

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

So warm, so soft. I need a matching one for my first mate! Make a puppy one please!!

A Great Addition To Your Jacket Quiver

I was given this product from Backcountry but this review is my personal opinion. I will admit, I was a bit skeptical of the idea of a piece of technical clothing that was Backcountry branded but that all changed from the moment I took the Silver Fork 750 Down Jacket out of the box and started wearing it. I live in Colorado and play in the mountains in all kinds of conditions and this jacket will now come everywhere with me. I am 5 foot 9 inches and 150 pounds and the medium fits perfect. The jacket affords enough space for layering underneath and has a trim enough silhouette to wear under a shell. I have used the Silver Fork 750 Down Jacket as a mid layer while taking a break during long tours in the backcountry, as extra warmth while standing at a cold belay, and while hanging around camp on cool mornings - it's even stylish enough to rock at the pub after all the aforementioned activities have ended for the day. The DWR on this layer has performed flawlessly in dry and snowy environments, though if its is raining or if the snow is wet I would recommend pairing it with a hard shell as down will lose its warming properties when wet. The zippers and bungee drawstrings around the waist and in the back of the hood are all great quality and will last. The 30D nylon that's used for the face fabric is really durable but I would definitely not throw it on to lead your next squeeze chimney - I do not see it holding up well against a lot of abrasion or a sharp point. All of that said, I am very pleased with the quality of the Silver Fork 750 Down Jacket from Backcountry and look forward to having more Backcountry branded technical apparel in my quiver.

Great!

Perfect coat, not thick at all, but keeps you warm. Longer than most coats which is nice for taller people, sleeves are long enough. Color is just like the picture

Great Mid-Weight Down Jacket!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Living out here in the Pacific Northwest, I was able to give this jacket a good work through evaluation. The Silver Fork Down jacket has lately been my "go-to" jacket for a variety of conditions; but for some of the stuff I do, I would not use it exclusively - I would incorporate it into a system. I'm giving this a full 4.5 stars for the following reasons below. It really is a GREAT mid-weight down jacket; I really do love it! It's so light and unobtrusive, you don't even know you have it on. But the warmth is not overbearing - I've worn it just inside the house during the day instead of cranking on the heat on the thermostat - it's great! Outside on very cold days, it does exceptionally in heat retention; and I love the hood - it feels and reminds me of a light mummy sleeping bag (in fact, I've actually slept with it on - feels like a light sleeping bag! Would be great for camping!).
This jacket also has a nice capacity to fold into its own zippered pouch. This was great when I traveled to Cabo from Portland on a cold snowy day. Wore the jacket to the airport, stuffed it in its pouch, tossed it in my backpack, flew to Cabo where it was 80 degrees, came back to cold Portland, and the jacket was again handy to have while waiting outside for Uber.

The Pros -
- very light
- great down insulation
- packable
- fits great (true to size); I'm 5'7", and weight a muscular 175 pounds; size Large)
- works great as an under layer to a shell
- exceptional hood

The Con -
- being an avid outdoorsman in the worst of conditions here in the Pacific Northwest, whether I'm snowboarding, hunting, fishing, etc., I'm very particular regarding equipment and apparel. This jacket is a little water resistant; only. A quick trip from car to store during some rain is okay. BUT, outside during a downpour; no way. You'll get soaked. I would love for this to be water repellant. BUT, as I mentioned earlier - this would make a great underlay to a waterproof shell! I do intend on using that.

With all of this, I'm giving it a 5-star rating, and would highly recommend this jacket!

Great Mid-Weight Down Jacket!

Hey Tom,
Thanks for the thorough review, glad to hear you've been enjoying your new down jacket!

Fits great

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

I saw some people saying the sizing was off, but I bought the XL and fits great! Definitely a better fit for people of more of an athletic built, the XL was still slim and not overly wide on me. Looks great as well and is a bit warmer than most mid layers with the 750 down. I would recommend this jacket for sure!

Great jacket

Because I love jackets have own both this and the Backcountry Murdock. If you are trying to decide between these two, for me it really comes down to usage. On the absolute freezing cold days when I know I'm going to be outside for a long period of time you can't go wrong with the Murdock. On the flip side, the Murdock is overkill if you just need a warm jacket on a very cold day to run to the store or take into work. For that reason I get more use out of the Silver Fork because I use it as my every day jacket during the cold winter days and use the Murdock during outdoor events that will last for awhile. I love the inside lining for both the quality as well as looks. The first few times I wore the jacket a few feathers came out but that stopped after a few uses.

Puffy for all the Activities

I was given this product from Backcountry, but this review is my personal opinion.
I have been incredibly pleased with the all-around functionality of the Silver Fork Down. It's held up to everything I've thrown at it in the mountains and is still great for just wearing around the town. I got the Fiesta/Andorra (Orange) and it looks just like it does online, just not quite as shiny. I'm 5'6" (on a good day), 150 lbs, and found the medium fit spot on. I've taken it out on a variety of activities, but I really tested it while touring. I used this while touring in 20 degree temps, light snowfall with about 15 mph wind gusts, and it kept me nice and toasty. The athletic fit is perfect for transitioning at the top of the climb without feeling like a giant marshmallow moving around.
The one complaint that I have would be the bleeding of feathers, but it's not a significant amount and I'm anticipating this to stop after a little more use since it's still pretty new overall.
The unsung hero of the Silver Fork Down is the hood. Sounds weird, but a bad hood can ruin a jacket. It fits your head just right and goes well over a beanie or not. Your brain container will thank you in this hood. It is also very nice how it easily packs into the inner chest pocket quickly. This works great for throwing it into a bag and not taking up much space at all.
It fit great under a shell and being used as the outer layer. Overall, it's a top notch jacket that I would definitely recommend, especially for the price. The Silver Fork Down is a great jacket for a wide range of activities.

Puffy for all the Activities

Hey Michael,
Thanks for the great review, happy to hear you've been enjoying your new down!

Hey Michael,

tight fit

    Definitely a better quality than most the fit was a little snug for my fit I normally go no larger than an XL in my puffies this should have been a xxl.

    Slightly small? They must be joking!

    • Size Bought: XL

    Slightly small is incorrect. I take a large size in jackets so I ordered and XL and it fit like a medium. Someone must have been hitting the pipe pretty hard to say it fits slightly small.

    go 2 sizes up

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XL

    I like this jacket and it seems well made. However, my perception of the sizing is very different from others. I'm typically a L or XL when it comes to jackets depending on the cut. For example, Carhartt I wear a L with plenty of room because those are sized really big but for thins with a more athletic cut I get XL. I went with XL on this one and it is still smaller than I would like. I have wide hips and a big backside, so it's especially tight there. It's also narrower in the shoulders than I would like. I guess I should have gotten an XXL which is weird considering I'm overweight but not really in Big and Tall store territory (5'11" 215 lbs.)

    Warmth, Style and Priced Right

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XL

    Been using this jacket for a few weeks and it has been great for the cold rainy days in Portland, OR. Jacket keeps me warm in drizzly 35 degree temps as well as the early mornings when it is below freezing. The hood is an added benefit when it is breezy.
    The style is awesome, have received numerous comments on the urban camo look. The outside pockets are deep so you can put your stocking hat, keys and phone in and still have plenty of room to stuff your hands in the pockets. I also like the additional internal pockets to keep other valuables that you dont want to risk falling out. Based on other reviews with sizing running small, I went with an XL and am glad I did. Fits good even with a couple layers on underneath.
    The price is great, especially compared to national brands for the same type jacket.

    Toasty

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I got one of these jackets as a gift and even if I hadn't after trying it on I would have bought one for myself. Nice lightweight warmth with plenty of style for every day winter wear without looking overly technical. The Ponderosa color looks great in person, its much more of a dark forest green than the blue-green hue it appeared on my screen. ZIppers are smooth and seem high quality. Love the big drop in pocket on the inside as well to stash a beanie, gloves, or maybe even goggles in in a pinch. Great warmth to weight ratio and the fabric seems more durable than alot of down jackets out there. It has been bleeding a bit more down than I am used to, I am hoping thats just because its new and will settle out, but not a deal breaker by any means. I personally didnt find the need to size up like others. I am a medium pretty across the board at 5'10 150 with broad shoulders, and a medium fit great in this and looks super sharp, a large was way too loose and looked sloppy.

    3 Month Review

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large

    I’ve had this jacket for maybe 2-3 months and have worn it almost every day since. Saw this jacket on sale while looking for a nice down jacket; I didn’t feel like shelling out for a Patagonia down sweater or other ‘equivalent’ so I gambled on this guy.- and I am very happy. The down fill feels great, the zippers seem solid as well as the stitching, although it loses feathers more than I would like, which is why I’m giving it four stars. The hood is fantastic; I’ve never used a hood as much and the coating on the jacket makes it good for drier snow and light rain. I would recommend that you size up; I am 5 foot 9 inches and a muscular 165 and I can wear a couple layers and a Better Sweater under my size Large jacket, making it a great piece for anything down to 15 degrees F or so (wearing this in 18 degree Burlington right now!). Definitely worth the buy if you’re interested in a solid down jacket that won’t break the bank- just size up!

    Very Comfortable and Warm

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    I recently picked one of these up and it has become my go to day to day jacket. Its not too bulky and seems a bit tougher than most light weight down pieces. It will work great under my shell for cold days on the hill, but for now it is an around the town jacket for me.

    Pretty Good Goat Down

      In the wake of the Backcountry.com brand name being bolstered by an increase in production I recently procured one of the Silver Fork hooded down jacket. The name immediately had me appreciating the sentiment as it hardens the Lodge and Restaurant halfway up to Big Cottonwood Canyon road that leads to the Solitude and Brighton ski resorts. The outer material feels a bit more durable than those lightest weight down pieces without too much stiffness. The 750 down isn't crazy warm but that lends it to be more versatile as you won't overheat during the indoor times.

      Solid, all-round jacket

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Size Bought: Large

      This is awesome! Lots of down in the hood, elastic cuffs, waist cinchers, deep pockets, slim fitted fit, and a radical colour. This is just solid, I feel warm. Its like being wrapped in a giant blanket. I never thought I would have a bright caution cone orange jacket, but I rock it, its nice, Love it.
