The Holden Fishtail Jacket is a lightweight warm insulated jacket that innovates function and style. PrimaLoft® insulation keeps your body heat in while fully-taped 20k breathable and waterproof nylon keeps you dry all day on the mountain. Under arm vents keep you cool while hiking and soft wrist gaiters and a removable powder skirt keep the snow out. Adjustable cuffs, hem and hood help you perfect the fit, and YKK® AquaGuard® zippers stop anything from leaking in.
Fully Taped - Having outerwear with fully taped seams means that on the inside of the jacket all the seams are covered in tape to provide the most effective waterproofing. It can be considered a key feature if you live in a wet climate or are planning on wearing the jacket during heavy rains. The downside is that due to the full taping there is less breathability than you'd experience with critically taped seams.
Primaloft Eco® - Primaloft Eco® is comprised of post consumer recycled materials that provide immediate warmth without the bulk. Fine fibers mimic the compressibility of goose down and are breathable, allowing moisture vapor to be transported through the fibers and away from your skin.
Synthetic insulation is measured in grams, so a jacket with a 80g rating simply means that a 1 meter by 1 meter piece of that particular jacket's insulation weighs 80 grams. The higher the rating, the warmer the outerwear.
Recycled Cord Adjusters - All Holden cord adjusters are made with recycled plastic.
Ships in Biodegradable Bag - Holden is all about eco-friendly processes, and that's why they ship their outerwear in a biodegradable bag.
Solvent Free DWR and Laminates - Solvent free laminates are treated with eco-friendly PFOA/PFOS free DWR. The process reduces all chemicals use in the traditional process and is safer for both the environment and the engineers and technicians.
Adjustable Hem Tail - Can be worn as a fishtail or straight hem by snapping the hem up.
YKK® AquaGuard® Waterproof Zippers - YKK® is synonymous with quality zippers, and these are designed to keep moisture out by covering the zipper coils with a polyurethane laminated tape.
