    Puffy for all the Activities

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    I was given this product from Backcountry, but this review is my personal opinion.
    I have been incredibly pleased with the all-around functionality of the Silver Fork Down. It's held up to everything I've thrown at it in the mountains and is still great for just wearing around the town. I got the Fiesta/Andorra (Orange) and it looks just like it does online, just not quite as shiny. I'm 5'6" (on a good day), 150 lbs, and found the medium fit spot on. I've taken it out on a variety of activities, but I really tested it while touring. I used this while touring in 20 degree temps, light snowfall with about 15 mph wind gusts, and it kept me nice and toasty. The athletic fit is perfect for transitioning at the top of the climb without feeling like a giant marshmallow moving around.
    The one complaint that I have would be the bleeding of feathers, but it's not a significant amount and I'm anticipating this to stop after a little more use since it's still pretty new overall.
    The unsung hero of the Silver Fork Down is the hood. Sounds weird, but a bad hood can ruin a jacket. It fits your head just right and goes well over a beanie or not. Your brain container will thank you in this hood. It is also very nice how it easily packs into the inner chest pocket quickly. This works great for throwing it into a bag and not taking up much space at all.
    It fit great under a shell and being used as the outer layer. Overall, it's a top notch jacket that I would definitely recommend, especially for the price. The Silver Fork Down is a great jacket for a wide range of activities.

    Puffy for all the Activities

    tight fit

    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 190lbs

    Definitely a better quality than most the fit was a little snug for my fit I normally go no larger than an XL in my puffies this should have been a xxl.

    Slightly small? They must be joking!

    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 200lbs

    Slightly small is incorrect. I take a large size in jackets so I ordered and XL and it fit like a medium. Someone must have been hitting the pipe pretty hard to say it fits slightly small.

    go 2 sizes up

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 215lbs

    I like this jacket and it seems well made. However, my perception of the sizing is very different from others. I'm typically a L or XL when it comes to jackets depending on the cut. For example, Carhartt I wear a L with plenty of room because those are sized really big but for thins with a more athletic cut I get XL. I went with XL on this one and it is still smaller than I would like. I have wide hips and a big backside, so it's especially tight there. It's also narrower in the shoulders than I would like. I guess I should have gotten an XXL which is weird considering I'm overweight but not really in Big and Tall store territory (5'11" 215 lbs.)

    Warmth, Style and Priced Right

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 200lbs

    Been using this jacket for a few weeks and it has been great for the cold rainy days in Portland, OR. Jacket keeps me warm in drizzly 35 degree temps as well as the early mornings when it is below freezing. The hood is an added benefit when it is breezy.
    The style is awesome, have received numerous comments on the urban camo look. The outside pockets are deep so you can put your stocking hat, keys and phone in and still have plenty of room to stuff your hands in the pockets. I also like the additional internal pockets to keep other valuables that you dont want to risk falling out. Based on other reviews with sizing running small, I went with an XL and am glad I did. Fits good even with a couple layers on underneath.
    The price is great, especially compared to national brands for the same type jacket.

    Toasty

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    I got one of these jackets as a gift and even if I hadn't after trying it on I would have bought one for myself. Nice lightweight warmth with plenty of style for every day winter wear without looking overly technical. The Ponderosa color looks great in person, its much more of a dark forest green than the blue-green hue it appeared on my screen. ZIppers are smooth and seem high quality. Love the big drop in pocket on the inside as well to stash a beanie, gloves, or maybe even goggles in in a pinch. Great warmth to weight ratio and the fabric seems more durable than alot of down jackets out there. It has been bleeding a bit more down than I am used to, I am hoping thats just because its new and will settle out, but not a deal breaker by any means. I personally didnt find the need to size up like others. I am a medium pretty across the board at 5'10 150 with broad shoulders, and a medium fit great in this and looks super sharp, a large was way too loose and looked sloppy.

    3 Month Review

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 165lbs

    I’ve had this jacket for maybe 2-3 months and have worn it almost every day since. Saw this jacket on sale while looking for a nice down jacket; I didn’t feel like shelling out for a Patagonia down sweater or other ‘equivalent’ so I gambled on this guy.- and I am very happy. The down fill feels great, the zippers seem solid as well as the stitching, although it loses feathers more than I would like, which is why I’m giving it four stars. The hood is fantastic; I’ve never used a hood as much and the coating on the jacket makes it good for drier snow and light rain. I would recommend that you size up; I am 5 foot 9 inches and a muscular 165 and I can wear a couple layers and a Better Sweater under my size Large jacket, making it a great piece for anything down to 15 degrees F or so (wearing this in 18 degree Burlington right now!). Definitely worth the buy if you’re interested in a solid down jacket that won’t break the bank- just size up!

    Very Comfortable and Warm

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    I recently picked one of these up and it has become my go to day to day jacket. Its not too bulky and seems a bit tougher than most light weight down pieces. It will work great under my shell for cold days on the hill, but for now it is an around the town jacket for me.

    Pretty Good Goat Down

      In the wake of the Backcountry.com brand name being bolstered by an increase in production I recently procured one of the Silver Fork hooded down jacket. The name immediately had me appreciating the sentiment as it hardens the Lodge and Restaurant halfway up to Big Cottonwood Canyon road that leads to the Solitude and Brighton ski resorts. The outer material feels a bit more durable than those lightest weight down pieces without too much stiffness. The 750 down isn't crazy warm but that lends it to be more versatile as you won't overheat during the indoor times.

      Solid, all-round jacket

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 6'2"
      • Weight: 165lbs

      This is awesome! Lots of down in the hood, elastic cuffs, waist cinchers, deep pockets, slim fitted fit, and a radical colour. This is just solid, I feel warm. Its like being wrapped in a giant blanket. I never thought I would have a bright caution cone orange jacket, but I rock it, its nice, Love it.

      Awesome all round puffer

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 6'2"
      • Weight: 180lbs

      I was given these by Backcountry for the purpose of testing but the opinions of this review are my own based on my experience

      The Silver Fork down jacket is a great balance of outdoor functionality and stylish enough to be worn around town without looking too outdoorsy..
      With the 750 fill power yet stuffed feel with a robust liner this jacket really keeps me warm when most sewn through pufflies can give you cold spots. That was a pleasant surprise!
      The pocket layout is just what all jackets need while the hand pockets create a sorta "drop" pocket on the inside which is awesome for stashing gloves or sunglass when on the mountain. Often with down hoods I get a bad case of "hood stack" when layer which can pull the collar into your face, this isn't the case with the hood on the Silver Fork!

      Pros: The down works well in cool to cold temps as a midlayer and performed well as a stand alone piece over just a baselayer while resort skiing.

      Cons: The face fabric, bleeding down at first. its a bit heavy compared to some "UL" style puffies.

      All in all its a light weight, warm and good looking jacket thats perfect for all round activities

      great medium weight puffy

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size

      This puffy is lightweight and warm. Not super heavy but it keeps me warm enough on the downhill backcountry skiing. I don’t think it has a pocket you can zip it up into, but I don’t use that function anyways.

      Great fitting jacket

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 5'11"
      • Weight: 160lbs

      I'm in between a medium and large. The large fits great with a little extra room underneath for a hoodie or think sweatshirt. So far the jacket is great. Replaced my "go-to" mountain hardware jacket I wore for years. Big sleeves to fill!

      Great Jacket, Runs Slim

      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 185lbs

      Initial thoughts on the gift - Have worn it two days in a row skiing. 18 - 32 degree temps and only had a tshirt underneath. Haven't been cold yet. Does run a little small (fit for a slimmer person). I would recommend a size up if you are worried about the slim fit.

      Engineered for Awesomeness.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: large
      • Height: 5'9"
      • Weight: 160lbs

      Drooled over this jacket online and so far it has exceeded my expectations. It's so light and comfy that you'll frolic like a young child. Feeling a little chilly... This sleek puff monster will fit under any jacket and if you start to overheat, just stuff her in your pocket and carry on. Although I will say, it regulates heat quite well. The cuffs and hood have elastic boarders which are obviously engineered to keep out snow gremlins on powder days. And yes, it works. The shell material has so far held up great (no ductape patches). If you're my size (medium build with great hair) this should fit great. If you are my height, have a strong jawline and enjoy squatting small school busses, go with the next size up. On a slightly negative note, I have abnormally large carpel bones, certainly inherited from my grandmother. As a result, the cuffs are slightly snug around my wrists.

      Odd fit

      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 185lbs

      I am usually between a medium and a large so I ordered a large. It's too short in the body and the shoulders fit really tight, yet the sleeve length is good - which is usually a problem for me as I have long arms. This is going back.

      Great Fit - Fresh Color

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: small
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 165lbs

      I'm very happy with this design from Backcountry. I'm about 5, 10' and the small fits me very well. I have enough room for layering, but it looks form fit and all the seams hit me in the right places. I went for the orange 'fiesta' color. It's bright, but has a sophisticated hue that you don't see a lot in down jackets. Zips and pockets are quality. Hood fits like they designed it for my head.

      Great down jacket!

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 5'9"
      • Weight: 170lbs

      This is a great value for a very warm , durable down jacket. I got it for my brother for Christmas as he and I love anything camo print. He has remarked several times on how warm it is for how light it is. He also likes the athletic fit. He is a pretty muscular dude , and falls between a medium and large, so I went large so it wouldn’t be tight in the shoulders or chest, and it fits great!

      Great down jacket!

      What is the temperature rating on this jacket?

      Temperature ranges on jackets are a bit difficult, as it depends on so many factors (activity, metabolism, even what you ate that morning can play a role) So temperature ranges for jackets, if posted by the company, tend to be very broad. I have a similar jacket, 750 fill, just a bit lighter, and it keeps me warm when active to around 15-20 degrees F, I would expect this one to be similar, I hope this helps!

      The jacket claims to have 750 fill power, but what is the fill weight of this jacket? As fill power to fill weight will be the combination for how warm this jacket will be.

      Thanks.

      Best Answer

      Hey there! You're totally right. The fill weight varies by size of the jacket and our medium has 126g and large has 134g for reference. What size are you planning to order? I can make sure we get you the fill weight.
