    Murdock 850 Down Jacket

    The winter weather in Utah's Wasatch Mountains can turn from bearable to frigid in the blink of an eye, so we never hit the skin track without an insulated jacket in our packs. Part of Backcountry's touring collection, the Women's Murdock 850 Down Jacket was designed with input from Gearheads to create a warm, fully-featured, and impressively packable down jacket. Boasting a high fill rating, the lofty down insulation efficiently locks in body heat without adding bulk and easily compresses to a size that fits well in any pack, keeping us comfortable during sub-zero dawn patrols, gusty transitions on the summit of Murdock Peak, and frigid descents into untouched cold smoke.

    We designed the Murdock to seamlessly layer under the Backcountry x Flylow Pfiefferhorn Jacket, but made it durable and weather-resistant enough to be worn as a standalone when it's flurrying on the skin track. Its rip-stop outer material can withstand snags from those early-season shrubs that haven't yet been completely covered by snow, and is down-proof to prevent any stray feathers from escaping. Water-resistant zippers keep moisture from permeating into our layers, while the adjustable hood, cuffs, and hem create a barrier that no chilly air can bypass.

    Unlike most down jackets, the Murdock actually features zippered side vents so we can easily flush heat, preventing a sweaty chill. All the zipper pulls and adjustment tabs are glove-friendly, and a plethora of pockets complete this toasty package. Two fleece-lined hand pockets and a chest pocket keep our essentials close at hand, while an internal medial pocket and large mesh pocket accommodate other items like a phone and goggles.

    Great Jacket!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    This jacket is one of the best I've ever owned....and I've lived in Wisconsin for 30 years, so I've owned a lot of jackets. I love that this jacket is super warm but not bulky. The little details like a stiffer area on the hood that acts like a brim and the vents show a lot of thought was put into this jacket.

    My only complaint is the sleeves seem quite short. I originally ordered a small, which fit well in the chest and waist (I'm a 34B and consistently wear size small in tops), but the sleeves looked like 3/4 sleeves on me. I exchanged the small for a medium and the sleeves on the medium are better, but still shorter than I'd like ( I can't wear the thing over my thumb and be able to comfortably bend my arm). The moral of this story is that if you're tall (or even just tall-ish) the cut of this jacket may not work for you. I wish Backcountry would make this in a tall option, so I didn't have to have a jacket that is too big in the body to get sleeves that are long enough to cover my wrists.

    LOVE

    My husband purchased this for me as an early Xmas present and I love it so much. I wanted a warm puffy that didn’t make me look like a snowman and very importantly, covered my tush. This jacket does the trick! It’s super warm, slenderzing and covers what I needed ;). I got an XS and I can still layer under. I also love that you can vent this jacket if you get too hot which was a fun surprise. New favorite jacket for sure.
