In the Nangpala, Sherpa have created a workhorse down jacket, filled with tough and water resistant Primaloft Silver Down Blend – a high tech blend of 60/30 down/synthetic fibres. This jacket is designed to be a go-to piece that will work under varied conditions, from the damp to the extreme. It’s a little bit heavier than its competitors, but for that you get sturdy micro fleece lined pockets and chin guard, a gorgeous contrast lining, and a generous fit that layers easily over everything else. I’m not a fan of the hood – it’s very simple with a draw cord around the face that doesn’t quite hold it in place. Comes with its own stuff sack. Weight 400g.
