Using 700+ fill power goose down makes the Karakorum our warmest mountaineering jacket, perfect for the bitter cold of high alpine conditions. Tighter baffle spacing of the down chambers with seamless technology increases warmth, improves compressibility, and reduces weight. Criss-crossed baffles are used in the arm chambers to prevent the down from shifting. Articulated arms give a large range of motion. The snorkel hood has two-axis adjustment large enough for a helmet with skin friendly fleece on the inside of the collar to protect your face from wind and cold. Elastic cuffs seal warmth in at the wrist with internal thumb loops. A draft tube over the main zipper keeps the cold out and there are lots of pockets; two pack-friendly hand pockets outside, two cargo stash pockets, and a zippered chest pocket inside. The asymmetric hem can be cinched tight with glove-friendly draw cords.


  • Helmet-compatible hood with snorkel tube and 2-way adjustment
  • Reinforced shoulders, outer and lower sleeves
  • Zippers - smooth sliding, glove friendly pull tabs

Karakorum Down Jacket

Ohio's last snow of the season brought an opportunity to put this jacket to use. The Karakorum Down Jacket has many of the same qualities that the Flight Lite Down Jacket has. The zipper pulls, the 3 hood straps/drawstrings, the waistline drawstrings, and the pockets being the main similarities. One difference; there is no external chest pocket.

One of the best aspects of this jacket is, hands down, the extra elastic cuff that is in the distal part of the sleeve. Not only does it help keep your gloves on, but it also helps to keep out the cold.

While this jacket was made specifically for alpine climbs, I would not overlook it when searching for a casual winter jacket. It kept me dry while in the snow all day, and I never once felt my upper body get cold. I can see this jacket lasting me many winters to come.

Karakoram Down Jkt Review

This is an awesome lightweight, super packable, and extremely warm down jacket for cold cold places. Its warmth to weight ratio seems to be in a class of its own compared to other 'bigger name' brands similar jackets. Nice finishing touches, such as baffled hood, big high draft tube collar, and elastic wrist gaiters makes this a true winner. Ive been using this jacket while guiding in such cold environments as the Ouray Ice Park, ski touring in Alaska and Colorado, and high altitude climbing in the Bolivian Andes and on Denali. A year of hard use, and it has a few knicks and some feathers squeezing their way out, but overall an unbeatable super cold weather layer for its weight and packability.

Excellent pants!

I'm an avid backpacker who backpacks in the USA and in other countries. I love these pants! They're moisture-wicking, lightweight and comfortable. They're also attractive. I can hike for the day, and then come back to the city I'm visiting and fit in with the business crowd. Very nice! These pants are of high-quality and keeps you cool in the summer. I highly recommend these pants!


Warm and comfortable baselayer. It could be used as a mid layer at cold temperatures. I really like the power stretch things. Regarding sizes, I am 6’0’’ and fit, I got L52 , it fits perfect

The price is so high. Bang for the buck! The price must come down to $70.00.

Great buy

Great durable bag

great pack

I bought this 3 years ago, it's been all over the world with me. Very happy with it! It's still looking pretty new after 3 years. The many compartments are very useful and convenient for finding your stuff. the hard back is great for carrying my laptop and external keyboard and there is separate pocket for them as well which helps the main compartment be more organized. The only downside is that the water bottle pockets on the side don't security hold a big water bottle, for me it would be better if they were taller, the strap above the pockets can lock in a taller water bottle but it doesn't work perfectly, sometimes the bottle falls out. Nevertheless very satisfied with this pack and recommend it.
