  • Kappa Synthetic Insulated Jacket
    kept me perfectly warm too Adele Pennington AMI instructor and Expedition Leader for Jagged Globe Trail Gear Guide The Jacket performed wonderfully I skied and climbed and slept in it and it was both warm and almost weightless Janey King a k a Rosie Thomas British Shackleton Traverse over South Georgia I took the chance to test the HS2 jacket today I was very very impressed with the jacket In the more exposed areas or when travelling fast I could feel the coldness of the air pressing on my arms not leaking through the fabric but I never got chilled It is hard to describe it s a bit like holding an iced drink in your hand you can feel the glass is cold but you don t get cold yourself The fit especially around the neck was loose enough to cope with under layers and balaclavas but never let in draughts either Body length and sleeve length were good too just about long enough to cover most of my backside and sleeves never got close to riding up far enough to expose my wrists etc The hood and ruff work well too It is plenty big enough to go over all my hat layers and the ruff did a good job of blocking the wind catching the ice in my breath HS2 outer fabric is really amazing I was a little concerned that the membrane would limit breathability and that it might go stiff and feel almost brittle like some Gore Tex fabrics can in the cold No such worries here It remained loose and soft to the touch even at 25C In the wind it would flap about quite happily and shake off any ice build up I m also guessing this action might have helped pump out moisture from inside I certainly never felt damp or clammy even if I was skiing harder I really appreciated the fact that the outer is almost a separate jacket and it is not stitched through to the insulation This seemed to add a whole new dimension to its protection warmth and weather resistance This is a very very good jacket I ve owned many over the years but I have never had one that can cope with such a variety of awful conditions that is this warm and light but that does not sweat up inside either This combination of fabrics insulation cut and fit is as near perfect as I can imagine It stood up well to both the elements down to 25C and physical wear and tear very well indeed James Garrett testing the Kappa Jacket ski trekking and snow shoeing in Finland Features Primaloft Gold synthetic insulation 133gsm quality in body 100gsm quality in sleeves Outer Fabric Waterproof HS2 un taped for lightness Inner Fabric Superlight MX Pockets 1 chest pocket zipped 2 handwarmer pockets zipped 1 inside security pocket zipped Velcro Cuffs not Lycra as shown Elasticated draw cord adjuster at hem Fleece lined collar Side Stitched for maximum loft Zip off helmet hood with cord adjustment Hood reducer with Velcro tab Reflective tape on Zip tabs for night location Stuff sac 13cm x 21cm Please note We make our stuff sacs big enough to allow fairly easy stuffing rather than reducing the jacket to the tightest minimum Description The Kappa is a truly versatile crossover jacket completely at home on high Himalayan treks Alpine ascents Scottish winter routes or any active cold weather sport one has already gone off dog sledding in the Arctic a function we didn t anticipate Excellent protection is provided by the HS2 waterproof outer and quick body warmth by Primaloft Gold insulation which will retain much of its insulation when it s wet It also works well when you re already soaked and simply want a warm up jacket to shift the chill The Kappa s two zipped handwarmers make it a pleasure to wear round camp while the helmet size hood and the two chest pockets one out one inside are the extra technical features climbers need Insulation is Primaloft Gold 133gsm quality in body 100gsm in sleeves Mate with our Kappa trousers for a complete system Please note although the outer fabric is waterproof the stitch lines are un taped for lightness So although the outer will shed rain and snow in a heavy downpour water can penetrate the stitching However the Primaloft insulation retains much of its insulation if wet As always in the mountains if there is a possibility of rain carry full specification waterproofs Technical Superlight MX fabric weight 32 gsm A mini ripstop nylon with excellent tear strength MX is the pick of the superfine 15 denier downproof materials We have tested lighter fabrics but most have had significant drawbacks while our confidence in MX is based on several years of extensive use in both our ultralight and our high mountain gear Order samples of this fabric just pay the postage Primaloft Gold Primaloft Gold is the ideal microfibre insulation Ultrafine fibres produce an insulating core that is incredibly soft lightweight and water resistant In our experience it absorbs water much more slowly than other waddings a marked advantage in wet cold conditions The nearest of the synthetics to the feel of down yet tougher than you would expect Primaloft Gold offers the best warmth weight performance in the Primaloft range Waterproof HS2 outer fabric weight 88 gsm HS2 is PHD s high spec 2 layer ripstop for waterproof outers on our down It is light enough to be the optional taped shell on our sleeping bags and tough enough for expedition use in our Omega clothing HS2 is completely waterproof when the seams are taped and offers excellent breathability Order samples of this fabric just pay the postage Sizing Standard clothing sizing chart Weight shown is for medium M size The PHD Sizing Chart below is based on measurements without

Jacket off you guys middle of last year I used it on Cho Oyu and it worked fantastically I did put the gear through a thorough test and am totally happy with the way it performed Ben Kane Guide Field Touring Alpine My Mt Rainier climb was a great success and your jacket was perfect John J Fernandez I have used PHD clothing in the Alps and Caucasus and I have grown to trust the performance and the quality that they offer The Zeta belay jacket especially has been a life saver a couple of times Robert Gatt team member Challenge 8000 My Zeta Belay Jacket is great insurance for damp times on the Polar ice Adrian McCallum Scott Polar Research Institute A brilliant jacket Nick R I couldn t think of a better jacket for Scottish Winter avoid the worry over down getting wet and get a synthetic like this It has obviously had lots of thought into the design as everything seems to be perfectly suited to climbing Steve Sharland on Outdoorsmagic Forum I have a PHD Zeta I like it It seems to have all the right things in all the right places and it s jolly cosy I like the handwarmer pockets M W My first PHD product and I m extremely impressed just throw it on at stance or when stopped on the

The new Zeta Jacket is better and warmer than ever Integral hood more accessible pockets and the soft warmth of Primaloft Gold But the original wide cut and user friendly features are still there marking it out as one of the only true mountain belay jackets available For Alpine winter routes Patagonia Alaska make no mistake this is the jacket you want with you when conditions get rough With thick 200grm m Primaloft Gold insulation this jacket gives reassuring protection in shocking conditions In our experience Primaloft Gold absorbs water much more slowly than other waddings a marked advantage in wet cold conditions The Zeta belay can be worn all day over a fleece layer or equally be used over a hardshell jacket The Zeta Belay Jacket could be used to provide additional warmth between cold belays by swapping between climbers at pitch change overs The Alpha is a lighter version of this jacket for temperatures around 10 C Please note this jacket is designed and sized to be worn over top outer layers It provides additional warmth on cold belays and typically is swapped between climbers at pitch change overs As used by Ian Parnell and Andy Kirkpatrick Technical Superlight
