The latest incarnation of this legendary Expedition 8000 Jacket has been developed in conjunction with active Himalayan climbers and polar explorers.

The jacket is filled with the highest quality 850FP RDS-Certified European Goose Down which is stitched with box-wall construction utilized specifically to eliminate cold spots. The Expedition 8000 Jacket uses extremely robust Pertex fabrics and includes a helmet-compatible down filled hood, 3 outer & 2 internal pockets, elbow articulations for greater freedom of movement, and mitt-compatible features like large zipper pulls.
