Stay warm without being weighed down. Up Jacket is a lightweight insulation jacket padded with synthetic Primaloft® Gold Active+. Wear it as an outer layer for hiking and everyday adventures or layer underneath your shell jacket for extra warmth in the ski slopes.
Why is it called Up Jacket? Because it’s free from down (get it?), but also because it’s so light that it will never stop you from climbing upwards. It’s the perfect garment for ski touring, climbing or hiking. Wear it as a light outer layer or bring it in your backpack for extra warmth during breaks. The outer fabric is a very durable ripstop fabric and the liner fabric is a highly breathable fabric with great next-to-skin comfort.
What really makes the Up Jacket special is the padding. Primaloft® Gold Active+ is a cutting edge synthetic padding. It has exceptional warmth-to-weight ratio and high breathability. It’s also highly packable. We choose to have synthetic padding, not down, in all our insulation garments. The reason is because it performs better, especially in wet conditions, but also because we don’t want to steal the feathers from any birds. Primaloft® Gold Active+ is also made from 55% recycled fibers and is fully recyclable.
If you are looking for a light insulation jacket for mountaineering expeditions or cold days in the city, Up Jacket is your match. After many years, when the jacket is completely worn out, you can bring it back to Houdini for recycling.
