The Skaha is a 2-3 season, fully baffled box construction zip neck sweater optimally filled with our 900FP goose down. For folks wishing to extend the use of the Skaha into colder seasons we offer 3 additional levels of down fill boost. Please see menu choices below.
Use the Skaha as a stand alone 'almost' down jacket, or under a shell when the conditions are rough. With the right size chosen, the fit is roomy and capable of accepting the wide range of layering often needed in the backcountry especially compared to the popular form fitting, quilted down jackets.
At night the Skaha can serve double duty boosting the temperature rating of your ultralight quilt. With the optional hood, the jacket is especially handy at this.
We build the Skaha with simplicity as the overriding design parameter. In its standard configuration 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.
The standard front closure is a YKK #3 pullover style half zipper. The half zipper, without the complexity of a separating mechanism, has proven to by very long lasting, even in the tiny #3 size.
Hood and bottom hem are controlled by shockcord and toggle.
The sleeve ends can be done in a number of different ways. See menu choices below.
We recommend selecting Hyper-Dry moisture resistant down for garments, at the expense of a little more weight and bulk.
The Classic Skaha configuration is available with a choice of light and/or durable shell fabrics.
The 1.0 ounce per square yard materials (Quantum, Argon) are towards the light end of the spectrum. These fabrics are our most popular jacket shell materials, hitting an almost perfect spot in the balancing game of weight, performance and durability. Colors offered currently are black, sage green and purple.
Epic is Nunatak's most durable shell, and easily the best choice in circumstances where the jacket is worn in brush or tight rocky places. In addition the Epic has improved water shedding abilities. The drawback is added weight and bulk, as seen in the chart below. Black and pale orange are the colors.
