The is the big sibling to the JMT Jacket

With more features and a roomy fit accommodating extensive layering, this APEX insulated PCT Pullover excels during adverse weather conditions, or in circumstances where moisture can infiltrate the insulation. 


Available as both full zip and pullover style, the latter is warmer, slightly lighter and easier to put on when windy, wearing gloves and/or in dark conditions. The short, non-separating zipper is longer lasting; and the roomy tunnel-thru kangaroo pocket is a cozy and effective handwarmer.

Why consider the full zip? Who knows; venting maybe?

Synthetic Fill:

3.6 oz/yd Climashield APEX  - 122 g/m - Static comfort to 30°F*
5.0 oz/yd Climashield APEX  - 170 g/m - Static comfort to 20°F*

*A healthy, well acclimatized individual with a full belly and adequate layering, protected extremities, and out of the wind.


Shell, 15d ripstop nylon: While only 15d this fabric is a significant step up in durability and tear strength over most UL fabrics. 

Liner, 10d taffeta: Black non-ripstop smooth weave. Or optional 15d ripstop Burnt Orange.


The cut is generally aimed at providing a roomy fit, easily accommodating layering and backcountry utility.


Skaha pullover

I just received my Large Skaha. Im 5'11 and weigh 180. It is well made and the sizing was great. Perfect for my backcountry fly fishing trips.
I couldn't have asked for better customer support while deciding on various options and I am so glad I ordered a semi custom jacket rather than going with an off the shelf jacket.

Thank you Nunatak!

Works as planned.

I have the 85g/m in the sleeves and
122 g/m in the body. I planned this to be good for camp chores to a few degrees under 0C and a bit beyond if need be. So far it has coped easily.
Wee bit over 320 grams. Elegant in design. Succeeds as planned.


Winter warmer update

Since my first review I have used my Skaha APEX jacket for about 6 months and it is awesome. On windy nights photographing the moon in 25f, around base camp in 18-30f even the occasional walk short walk when snowing. It has always kept me warm and snug.
Thanks again for a truly great jacket.


Toasty at 37f

Skaha APEX jacket
Body length is good, not being too short, and the cuffs don't ride up when raising my arms. The 13" zip makes it easy to get on and off. Elasticated hem which keeps the drafts out, could do with an elasticated collar to stop heat escaping. Climashield APEX 5oz filling is a little bulky like most Four season synthetic tops, having said that it fits well over my base layer and not that bulky under my waterproof jacket.
The outer shell is Grey Robic Ripstop fabric with a breathable micro porous coating. The Robic is useful at shedding water with a HH (hydrostatic head) of 1000mm, while providing enough vapour transfer for mild activities (good breathability). The inner material black taffeta and this is where the insulation is stitched in. This is the lightest version of the pullover style jacket, with the medium weighing 353g, 12.5oz.
You can of course specify the fill, back length, collar, pockets, hood and several other features.
I used this jacket on a recent overnight trip on the North Yorkshire Moors. Windy at 15-20mph and gusting 30mph with hill fog rolling in.
Around camp I was warm and dry and when I turned in for the night I left the top on over my base layer under my quilt. It soon became too hot so removed & added to my stuff sack pillow. Unfortunately, the temperature did not drop below 37f overnight, so the jacket did not reach its full winter status. Will be submitted to further use as winter draws on and the temperature drops.

Jacket arrived safe and sound this morning Jan :-)

Really impressed with it, very well made and the fit seems spot on, everything I wanted and nothing more.

Thanks so much for getting it to me in time for my Arctic Sweden trip.

I'll report back when it's had some use :-)

WOW, super impressed!

I got the the 5.0 Apex and It is so lofty yet so light! Superb quality, looks great, feels great. Special thanks to Jan for working with me on some custom details- I really appreciate it! Look forward to ordering from Nunatak in the future they are a first class operation.

An email from a customer, talking about initial impressions:

Just letting you know the jacket arrived today with two weeks to spare before my trip!. I am absolutely thrilled with the result. It's a beautiful, warm jacket and the finished weight came in at only a hair over 400g!!

I'm hoping to do a little write up for backpacking light when I get a chance.

Please pass on my thanks to the team. Superb work!



From an email we got:

Received the jacket yesterday- looks great! I was surprised (pleasantly) how much loft the 2.5 Apex has- wow :) I'm hoping to bag Stuart Peak tomorrow, the jacket will accompany me.
