    Our latest innovation in lightweight insulating serious hunting gear. The Switchback Jacket is the carbon fiber stock of mid-layers. The latest innovation in ultra-light, high-performance hunting gear. Utilising Primaloft eco 80gm insulation in the front and back, this top will keep your core warm, but the lightweight hard-faced fleece sleeves and sides help to cut down on bulk when used as part of a layering system, without binding upon other layers on top. It packs down super small and weighs nothing but will give you plenty of warmth for those chilly autumn mornings.

    • Weight Sz M: 19.5oz / 550 grams
    • 80gsm PrimaLoft Black Eco front and back of the torso
    • 280gm hard-faced, high wicking, two-way stretch fleece (made from recycled polyester) for the arms and sides

    • 2 zippered handwarmer side pockets
    • Available in Forest Green/Grey and Desolve Veil Camo

      Ethically Sourced Down:

      Down is an incredible product with amazing thermal properties. Unfortunately, the down industry has a dark side to it. Most down products come from untraceable sources, many of which are the product of live plucking. Live plucking of birds is extremely cruel, and something we aren’t willing to have anything to do with. We have gone to great lengths to ensure that 100% of our fill products are either sourced from fully traced, ethical supply chains, or premium quality synthetic alternatives.

      Our search for a responsible down product led us to Primaloft® Black Eco®. This is a new fill that is 100% synthetic, with strong warmth to weight and packability, great performance in wet weather and in breathability. 60% of this fill is made from post-consumer recycled material which is great for the environment and it boasts the maximum warmth to weight for this category.

        Awesome Jacket

        I purchased for hiking in cooler weather, camping and fishing. So far it punches above my expectations. It does a really good job at blocking the majority of the wind and was very breathable while hiking for long periods while still keeping me warm.

        Shoulders are narrow

        Feels like a great jacket for layering system. Only complaint is the shoulder area runs narrow. Im 6 foot 6 and weight 230. My shoulders maybe a bit wide but i ordered a 3xl and its still a little tight. But overall the jacket will get tested in the snow soon.

        Awesome experience

        Great puffer coat for a great price. Didn’t realize order was coming from NZ (my fault), but still got the coat in super fast time!

        Warm and lightweight

        Nice jacket. I like the hybrid design with insulation on chest and stretchy thinner material over the arms. Feels great.

        Sizing is on the plus side. I suggest going down one size based on mid layer size guide. Im 6 foot 90kg with 114cm chest. I bought the L (105-110cm chest on guide) and it still feels roomy.

        These are the measurements of the garment, not the person wearing the garment.
