When I tried on the prototype of this jacket at Trail Days in Damascus earlier this year, I knew I’d be getting one! I think my search for the perfect backpacking jacket is finally over! Bonus that it matches my Zpacks full zip sleeping bag! Zpacks does not disappoint. Just get one.

When those cold nights in the backcountry hit, stay warm and cozy with our Goose Down Jacket. Striking the perfect balance of warmth and weight,​ our ultralight Goose Down Jacket is the go-to insulated layer for outdoor adventurers looking to beat the chill at an unbeatable weight!

 

  • Constructed with responsibly sourced and 'Responsible Down Standard' certified DownTek PCF-FREE water-resistant 950 fill power goose down which stays dry 90% longer than untreated down.

  • Both the liner and the shell are treated with C0 durable water repellent to resist rain spray and body moisture.

  • Comfortable body and sleeve length provide warmth over layers.

  • Fitted hood with adjustable cinch cords provides maximum coverage. 

  • Dual hand pockets help you stay warm on trail or at camp.

  • Adjustable elastic at the hem can be cinched tight to prevent the jacket from riding up.  

  • Elastic at the wrists seals the sleeves and keeps drafts out.  

  • An internal zippered chest pocket, appropriately sized for each jacket, is the perfect place to store maps or a phone.

  • The chest pocket can also be flipped inside out and used to store the jacket when not in use or used as a pillow.  
  • Both the liner and the shell are treated with "C0" Durable Water Repellent to resist rain spray and body moisture. C0 DWR contains no PFOA or PFOS.

  • All Zpacks gear has a two year limited warranty against defects in materials or workmanship. Please see our return / warranty policy.

Jacket Down Fill Weights

Small: 3.0oz (85g)

Medium: 3.4oz (96g)

Large: 3.8oz (108g)

XL: 4.2oz (119g)

XXL: 4.6oz (130g)

.51 oz/sqyd Ventum Ripstop Nylon

The inner and outer shells of our Sleeping Bags and Quilts are both made from this super light, high quality, 7 denier fabric that weighs in at just .51 oz/sqyd (17 g/m²). 

Featuring a high quality "C0" durable water repellant (DWR), this ripstop and tear resistant material can also handle light mist and dew (but is not waterproof).

Ventum nylon cuts the wind while still allowing for excellent vapor transfer and breathability. With a soft texture, Ventum is not sticky or plastic feeling like some other fabrics in this weight range.

The material is down and mosquito proof and is an excellent choice for wind shell clothing and sleeping bag shells.

Ventum fabric tests at 39.5 CFM under ASTM D-737.


DownTek 950 Fill Power Water Repellent Goose Down

DownTek 950 Fill power goose down has a "C6" water repellent which allows it to stay dry over 90% longer than untreated down. The water repellent is PFOA and PFOS free. It is 'Responsible Down Standard' certified, ensuring that the animals are treated humanely. Goose down is a byproduct of the goose meat industry.


Measuring:

Measure your chest using a string or cloth tape measure and go by the "Fits up to" size. The "Fits up to" size includes a few inches of wiggle room for layering. The jackets are straight cut (like Men's jackets) and do not flare out at the hips. 

They are fine for women, but make sure your hips will fit the bottom hem girth, or size up.

Quite possibly the Goldilocks of Backpacking Puffy Jackets!

Warmer and lighter than a Ghost Whisperer, longer and softer than a Torrid Apex. When I tried on the prototype of this jacket at Trail Days in Damascus earlier this year, I knew I’d be getting one! I think my search for the perfect backpacking jacket is finally over! Bonus that it matches my Zpacks full zip sleeping bag! Zpacks does not disappoint. Just get one.
