Hospitable warmth at shivery altitudes.
Taking BLACKYAK's mountaineering expertise to heart, the Men's Sibu Hooded Active Down Jacket keeps you toasty-warm in the frigid conditions experienced while backcountry touring and ascending alpine routes of mixed rock and ice. The shell is comprised of lightweight Cordura fabric, which keeps its overall weight down and prevents damage from abrasion. It's finished with a DWR treatment that repels outside moisture and light snow from compromising the down insulation underneath.
As you'd expect from a jacket of this caliber, premium 750-fill down insulation maintains lofty warmth in sub-freezing temperatures. What really sets this jacket apart is the mesh-box wall construction, which uses separately attached box-walls of mesh fabric to prevent down migration and cold spots from sapping your overall warmth. Best of all, this construction technique acts as a fail safe, as the outside seams are basically double stitched, so you'll have a second line of defense in case of thread breakage. Another unique feature, the center-front zipper is entirely replaceable without compromising the jacket's integrity, should it fail some years down the road after heavy-duty use.
