Among the many uses for the Skaha Vest is the advantage of boosting the temperature rating of your sleeping bag by providing core warmth to the torso region.
We build the Skaha Vest with simplicity and low weight as our design parameters. It has no extras, zero bells and whistles, nothing to snag or break or get in the way of traveling light and fast. What you do get is maximum warmth for the given weight, and a clean looking, functional garment. Standard features include a pullover style half zipper, and an elastic draw cord and toggle at the waist.
Standard features are a YKK #3 pullover style half zipper and an elastic draw cord and toggle on the waist hem. The half zipper, without the complexity of a separating mechanism, has proven to by very long lasting, even in the tiny #3 size.
