Why We Made This

Traditional down insulation is easily compromised by moisture and compression while 100% synthetic insulation has the ability to withstand both but limits packability of a jacket made for frigid conditions. Our design approach was to leverage a hybrid insulation that delivers the warmth-to-weight ratio and packability of down with the durability of synthetic insulation. The added Windstopper® layer provides fully-windproof protection, serving up the ideal defense required to withstand the elements of the late season.

I used this on a two-week backpacking hunt in remote Alaska. This packed up perfectly and kept me super warm when I needed to glass while temperatures dropped below freezing and the wind was blowing. This is an excellent jacket for back-country hunts where you can only carry so much weight, but you need to stay warm in harsh conditions. I highly recommend this jacket.

I replaced an old Kelvin jacket (no hood) with this new model. I wear a Large and this new Kelvin has a ton of extra room in the midsection, almost to much. But I need the arm length and length in the back. It also does not have fleece on the inside of the collar like my old jacket. But it has much more loft and I like the Wind shear. I’m in Canada and no local dealers. It would have got a 5 star review if it fit better. But function I believe has improved over my old Kelvin jacket.

Great warmth. The brimmed hood is nice once adjusted w/drawstrings. I was outside the other day- wind was 20-30, temps in the teens. I was only wearing a t-shirt underneath and was nice and toasty. Didn't feel the wind. Can't wait to use it this winter! I'm 6'2 230 athletic build and usually wear XL and some XXL in most sitka stuff. Dont size up. The XL fits great everywhere except the mid section/gut area. You could honestly fit a small child in there. No, its probably not that bad, lol.Maybe it's for maximum layering? It's not a deal breaker because this hoody is the bomb otherwise.

I have the Kelvin lite jacket in XL and it fits me well. I ordered this jacket thinking it would be just slightly larger but I think its more like a XXL-XXXL size for me. I'm 6'1 with longer arms and legs,and weigh in at 190lbs. Its a bit of a hassle to order from Canada as now I have to send it all back again, claim border taxes and reorder. It looks great though! Its just like a good down winter jacket in camo with the wind blocker.
