On Test the Sherpa Adventure Gear Kailash Jacket ticks all the boxes required for a big mountain mid layer/ light weight insulated jacket.
Sherpa Kailash Jacket
The Sherpa Adventure Gear Kailash Jacket is a must for any adventurer or outdoor enthusiast's wardrobe. It works perfectly as a warm outer on any cold (but dry) adventure, yet it's also as much at home on a cold winter's dog walk, or a late summer evening.
The ridiculously light-weight Primaloft filling will keep you super snug when both dry and wet; it also dries out far faster than down - a big advantage on multi day trips..
The Kailash Jacket's stretch ripstop shell shuns wind and drizzle, but would soon leach in mild rain.
The four pockets are fleece lined, so nice and warm to stick cold hands in. The hood is somewhat large and has no adjustment, but if climbing, at least you'll get it over your helmet!
The Sherpa Mountain Gear Kailash jacket is a wonderfully light, (at only 475 g), yet warm alternative to a much more expensive, yet comparable, down jacket. It works well as a stand-alone jacket, but with its snug fit, will easily sit under your waterproof on any adventure, making it a super useful piece of kit in all cold conditions.
