Warning: Last items in stock!
Down quantity upgraded for 2023 to include overfill
The Skaha is an upper 'mid-weight', fully baffled box construction zip neck sweater. It does not have sewn-through seams.
The fill weight represents about 60% of the total, with 6.4 ounces of down in the size medium.
It has 1.25" of loft with no cold breaks anywhere.
The resulting warmth makes this jacket a legit choice for shoulder season/mild winter high mountain adventures.
Static comfort temperature is 20°F with adequate layering and out of the wind. Push it into teens with experience.
The fit is roomy to accommodate layering, especially compared to the popular form fitting, narrowly quilted down jackets.
At night the Skaha can boost the temperature rating of your ultralight quilt, thus saving on weight otherwise invested in redundant insulation.
We build the Skaha with simplicity as the overriding design parameter.
The standard front closure is a YKK #3 pullover style half zipper, backed by a draft tube.
The options for pockets on the Skaha UL includes the hand warmer 'muff' style exterior pocket, and inside chest pockets.
We make the Skaha both with or without a hood. The hoodie version features an integrated standard sized insulated hood.
Hood and bottom hem are adjustable by shockcord.
The sleeve ends can be done in a number of different ways. See menu choices below.
The Skaha UL is insulated with 900 fill power goose down, RDS certified and responsibly sourced down from ethically committed harvesters.
10d Ripstop Nylon shell for lightest weight. upgraded 15d for extra durability.
A fairly accurate depiction of the fill weight is in the main chart below. The totals are representative of the lightest fabrics and several key features: 10d shell and liner, integrated hood and front pocket, standard sleeve ends, no overfill, etc.
Roomy fit to protect loft and accommodate layering. Cut with a straight torso and large sleeves for ease of passing over head and shoulders.
