    Murdock 850 Down Jacket

    Part of Backcountry’s touring collection, the Murdock 850 Down Jacket is a midlayer informed by feedback from the most experienced Backcountry Gearheads. We know the intense cold inherent in setting the Wasatch’s skin tracks before sunrise—a day at the resort can't compare to skiing sans daylight—so the Murdock not only keeps us warm during these frigid dawn patrols, but also packs away without taking much room in our ski packs. Its down insulation has the highest fill rating in the puffy business, meaning you’d be hard-pressed to find an insulator that compresses better.

    We designed the Murdock to pair with the Backcountry x Flylow Grizzly Gulch Jacket perfectly, but it still boasts enough weather protection for you to wear without the shell when it’s snowing on the skin track. Its durable, downproof face fabric boasts resilient water-resistance and YKK Vislon Aquaguard zippers to shed snowflakes and powdery spray alike. Unlike most down jackets, the Murdock also features ventilation zippers that amplify airflow when the temperature finally rises with the sun, and the zippers correlate with the Grizzly Gulch’s ventilation zippers to provide better airflow even while wearing a shell.

    All of the adjustment points—cuffs, hood, and hem—have glove-friendly tabs so you can seal out cold drafts without taking your gloves off and exposing your hands to the pre-dawn chill. The jacket is also finished with two internal pockets. One has a headphone port for smartphones, and the other is large enough to fit frozen climbing skins, ensuring the glue will be warm and adhesive again when it's time to transition back to the skin track.

    The best way to keep warm

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    This jacket is the warmest jacket I own and is perfect for when the temps drop to those single digits. I'm 5'10'' and 150 pounds and it fits me great with plenty of room for layers underneath. One of my favorite features is the thumb holds which help keep my hands a bit warm and the wind from coming up the sleeve.

    Husband loves it

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 6'3"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    My husband was wanting a warmer down jacket for walking the dog when it's still dark in the morning. This jacket is extremely warm and high quality. The fit is slightly long which adds warmth and coverage.

    Fantastic Down Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    This is my current favorite down jacket among the many in my closet. This jacket combines fantastic construction, quality materials and truly thoughtful design elements that drive performance in the backcountry. This jacket fits me true to size. I am 6'0" and 180 lbs and wear a medium in nearly every brand including Backcountry. The over profile of the jacket is a bit more on the freeride side meaning it is a bit longer than your average jacket (about 1 inch) which I really like. The fabric is great and so far is very durable. The 850 down is the highest fill rating (warmth-to-weight ratio) available in the market making this a jacket very warm, lightweight and packable. The jacket has a number of really thoughtful design features that really make it. The cuff construction has built it wrist gaiters with thumb holes that allow keep you sleeves in place with gloves on. The gaiters also completely eliminate air flow in through the wrist holes resulting in no draft through the sleeves. The body of the jacket contains mesh-lined vents which I have not previously seen on a down jacket. It is nice to be able to open up vents to dump heat if the temperature rises. Finally the double zipper allows you to unzip the jacket from the bottom up allowing easy access to ski bibs or anything stashed under the jacket. Finally, the chest pocket is huge, like good sized peanut butter sandwich huge, while maintaining a nice low profile when empty. I could not recommend this jacket more highly.

    Size run small

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: xxl
    • Height: 6'7"
    • Weight: 260lbs

    It is a great looking coat. The length was perfect. The problem was when I tried it on with only a T-shirt underneath, I could hardly zip it up. I usually have lots of room with an XXL and length is the problem. I usually buy a tall when available.

    Pretty Cool.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium.
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 145lbs

    I have always wanted a big puffy jacket! When Backcountry came out with one I did not hesitate on picking it up. This jacket fits really nice, is super comfortable, and has some rad features. I am a big fan of the venting system.

    Warm and Stylish

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 6'1"
    • Weight: 185lbs

    Needed a warmer option than my TNF Thermoball hoodie and this has been great so far. While I normally wear a size large shirt/jacket, I ordered the medium and it was the right call. Length is a bit longer than expected, but the additional coverage adds warmth. I'm a big fan of the vents located on both sides, as well as the internal pocket. While I've only worn the jacket a few times so far, the quality seems great and the sepia/mustard color is absolutely killer.

    What is the fill weight (weight of the down)? Thanks

    Hey Cheng! Great Q. The fill weight is 107g for the size large and changes by about 6 oz as you go up or down sizes. Hope this helps! It also has synthetic insulation on the collar, cuffs, and chest pocket.

    Hey Cheng, you're right! I was wrong in the units on the 6 oz portion of my statement. It should read 6grams. The 107g fill weight is correct though. The fill weight is lower than the overall jacket weight - especially with a high power fill like the 850. For comparison, the Arc'teryx Cerium LT Hoody: 10.8oz total weight with 3.35oz of 850 fill.
