- So light yet so warm with no restrictions of movement.
- The zip on the side popockets catch the stitches on the sleeve cuffs and damage them a bit.

The Men's Ramche 850 Fill HydroDown™ Jacket was designed and developed by our MtnHaus® team, with extensive input from athlete Mick Fowler who put it to test during his successful ascent of Mugu Chuli in the Himalayas.
The Ramche HydroDown™ jacket uses a three zone principle to body map the 850 fill power hydrophobic goose down, maximising the body’s own heat generation and heat loss principles keeping you warmer and more comfortable than ever before. The core of the Ramche jacket uses novel offset baffles increasing the warmth further while the 850 fill HydroDown™ and PERTEX® QUANTUM® GL fabric keeps weight to a minimum with superb packability.
Weight (approx.): 448g
Our model is wearing a UK Large and is 6’2'' (187.9cm) tall

The Ramche Down Jacket was developed by the MtnHaus team, with extensive input from Mick Fowler and his climbing partner Dave Turnbull (CEO of the BMC) in preparation for their Himalayan expedition to climb Mugu Chuli.
With the exceptionally changeable and unpredictable Himalayan climate Mick and Dave needed gear which could cope with extreme icy conditions in excess of -20 degrees.
DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT
The Ramche Down Jacket stays drier, lighter and retains its loft better than regular down due to the unique and innovative water resistant treatment applied directly to the down itself. This means you stay warm in conditions that ordinary down wouldn't be able to cope with.
As well as making use of innovative new technology the MtnHaus team also wanted to make sure the Ramche would make the most of the body's own heat generation and loss.
After reviewing the construction of a standard down jacket, and further research into body heat generation and loss the team have been able to use innovative baffle engineering in a two zone principle to body map the down fill of the Ramche:
The core features novel offset baffles which provide a high level of warmth to keep essential organs warm.
The shoulders and side panel adopt stitch through baffles in unique designs to prevent down migration and encourage heat loss where needed.
