Planks Clothing Cloud 9 Insulated Jacket - Men's

Packable, compressible, and protective warmth.

Digging pits and studying avalanche conditions in the backcountry requires patience and precision—two things you don't really have if you're shivering in sweat-soaked layers, so pull the Planks Men's Cloud 9 Insulated Jacket out of your backpack before your shovel. This midweight insulator uses Planks' RideWarm insulation that's as lofty and compressible as down, except it stays warm when wet for better protection in moist environments. RideWarm is so compressible that the jacket can stuff inside its own pocket for compact storage in your pack. Planks treated the Cloud 9's durable ripstop shell in DWR to shed snowflakes or your backcountry buddy's spray from his shovel. In case conditions are colder than usual, the jacket's helmet-compatible hood lets you ski down in this warm midlayer without compromising safety.

Great Jacket, Runs Large

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Large

Picked up this jacket in August for use while backpacking the John Muir Trail. It was small and compact enough to jam in my heavily loaded pack. It kept me very warm at night and on chilly Sierra Nevada mornings. More recently I have been wearing it around campus during a recent cold snap and it has kept me plenty warm.

My only gripe is that it does tend to run large. I am a pretty big guy and the sleeves and cuffs extend fully over hands, although I can usually keep them in a good position due to the elastic at the wrists.

My favorite go-to

This little jacket is fashionable enough to wear out on the town, but warm and compact enough to be a no-brainer when packing for a day in the BC. Compresses down to a tiny size and isn't a burden to keep stashed. Pull it out when staying idle on those colder days and it's a great base layer.

Great Layer
I bring the Cloud 9 with me every day. It packs up small enough to hardly notice in the pack and has kept me going on the coldest days. It's surprisingly durable given it's lightweight design and looks great as an outer layer as well.

Cloud 9 puffy

This is the perfect puffy for everyday street wear, touring, and base layer. I wear it almost everyday around Salt Lake City where it is very cold. It is also my favorite piece of clothing to tour in. Light weight and breathable. Great puffy for every day life. The ladies it too.

Functional and Warm!

This jacket is great for every day street wear and is also perfect for when you are touring in the Back Country and want to have light and dry gear the whole day. I highly recommend this jacket!

I wear this around campus all winter as i skate around when I can and I've fallen off my skateboard and haven't gotten one tear. Its so lightweight and comfortable is perfect for everyday use. Always keeping me warm even on those cold nights as i walk to class.

I love this jacket, for skiing or just walking around town. It's so lightweight, comfy, very warm and looks good!

Warmth for every scenario

I have had this for half a year and love it. I wear it around town and on the slopes as a jacket or super warm under layer. Under my shell it is as warm as would ever want to be! It is nice because it does not feel bulky under a shell like many puffs do.

Warm and stylish

I use this as a under layer and also as a walking around jacket. Under a jacket your warm as you will ever need to be on the coldest days. Walking around jacket? Hell yeah 2 for 1. 10/10 would and am getting more.
