Black Diamond Hot Forge Hybrid Hoody
Black Diamond created the Hot Forge Hybrid Hoody to push the boundaries of insulating jackets. Built for maximum warmth and optimal weather protection, it’s also light and packable, like every insulating jacket should be. From a super-light and durable DRW-coated outer, the insulation is built on a blend of top-quality, warm-when-wet Primaloft Gold insulation and super-warm down. The ideal insulating jacket for ski-touring, mountaineering or showery days at the crag.

Pertex Quantum uses incredibly fine yarns, precisely woven to provide a very lightweight yet strong and durable fabric. Its softness allows down
and synthetic insulation to fully loft."
PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation
PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation is a premier microfiber insulation that mimics the softness and packability of down. It’s compressible, breathable and offers superior water repellency so you remain dry, warm and comfortable even in extreme conditions."
Ripstop fabrics are woven fabrics, often made of nylon, using a special reinforcing technique that makes them resistant to tearing and ripping. During weaving, (thick) reinforcement threads are interwoven at regular intervals in a crosshatch pattern.
DWR (durable water repellent) is a coating added to fabrics at the factory to make them water-resistant (or hydrophobic). Most factory-applied treatments are fluoropolymer based. Durable water repellents are commonly used in conjunction with waterproof breathable fabrics such as Gore-Tex to prevent the outer layer of fabric from becoming saturated with water. This saturation, called 'wetting out,' can reduce the garment's breathability (moisture transport through the breathable membrane) and let water through.
This jacket can be packed packed down and stored in one of its pockets, so you can easily keep it in your pack or clip it to your rack. This saves loads of space and makes jackets with this feature ideal just-in-case items for climbing, ski touring and mountaineering.
