The Black Diamond Men's Hot Forge Hybrid Jacket is an insulated jacket for midlayer and stand alone warmth. This jacket is so special, it got not one type of insulation, but two! Inside the Pertex® Quantum 20D shell is PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation Down Blend at the body, with PrimaLoft Gold Insulation at the shoulders and arms. Yep, that's right, down AND synthetic. No more debating which is better, since now you have both. The combination allows the jacket to compress into its own internal mesh pocket, remain lightweight, while still resisting light moisture and keeping you mighty warm. Climbing and hiking in cold weather just became way more fun.

Durable Water Repellant
DWR (Durable Water Repellent) is a coating that is applied to fabrics which makes them water-resistant, or hydrophobic. A DWR finish doesn't interfere with breathability, which makes it perfect for adverse conditions in the backcountry.
PrimaLoft Gold synthetic insulation offers light weight thermal efficiency, permanent water resistance, maximum breathability and superior softness.

Good fit but could be warmerPurchased to wear under shell for skiing. Good fit, does not fell bulky under ski coat. Warm enough under shell but as a standalone coat I thought it would be warmer.
