Black Diamond Hot Forge Hybrid Hoody – Editor’s Choice

 

 

 

£200

From the moment this landed on my desk we were inseparable. It’s a hybrid composition that really works. The body is filled with Primaloft Gold Down Blend, with a 70/30 down/synthetic insulation blend that resists moisture longer than traditional down. The arms, shoulders and hood are filled with synthetic Primaloft Gold 60 g/m2, warm when wet, and durable. I loved it as it really performs in the damp Scottish environment where I work and play. The jacket is beautifully cut, with lots of nice technical features such as a helmet compatible adjustable hood, soft and stretchy gusseted cuffs, and a plush microfleece lining around the neck. There are pockets galore; as well as two hand-warmer ones, there are internal pouches for gloves and snacks, plus a zipped mesh packet that doubles as a stuff sack. It also looks great with a thoughtful cut and low key branding. Weight 350g.
