    Wolverine Cirque Insulated Jacket

    Wolverine Cirque is an epic basin located in the backcountry between two of Utah’s world-renowned ski resorts, and it’s home to 16 of the steepest, tightest chutes in the Wasatch Range. Skiing all 16 in a single day is the stuff of Backcountry Gearhead dreams, and doing so would require ambition, tenacity, and a collection of technically advanced, performance-oriented, and backcountry-specific ski clothing. We can't help with the former two qualities, but we designed gear like the Wolverine Cirque Insulated Jacket to meet the gear requirements. It's our go-to midlayer for highly aerobic activities—like, say, skinning and skiing 16 chutes a day.

    To make an insulator worthy of such a grandiose tour, we designed this hybrid jacket with a combination of weather-resistant materials, moisture-managing fleece panels, and an innovative insulation with incredible breathability and stretch. Unlike standard synthetic insulators, 3DeFX+ insulation mirrors your every movement to maintain warmth and reduce the chance of cold spots appearing over time. We wrapped this innovative insulation in a stretch-woven, water-resistant shell to shed snowfall on the 14th boot pack of the day, and the fleece paneling wicks moisture away in areas you’re likely to sweat most while moving fast.

    Great breathable yet warm jacket

      I loved this jacket! It breathes so well and does such a good job of keeping me warm. I hiked in this with a t-shirt underneath in about 30-40 degree weather and it was perfect, it kept me warm but breathed well enough to not build up a sweat. I can't wait to wear this under my hardhwell when skiing, this would be the perfect layer. The fit is as expected I’m 6’0 145lbs and the M fit great.

      Peak Baggers Friend

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 180lbs

      Made for the pursuit of big lines and fun times. This jacket has a full stretch back panel that releases the heat from your body on your ascent. Your core stays warm and the precipitation beads off if mother nature decides to add a few inches to the snow pack while you're getting after it. The fit is comfortable and true to size. The sleeves aren't fitted so you don't feel constricted in anyway, and the body is nice and long so you don't experience any unwanted drafting. The large offers more room, looks just slightly big on me but is nice for layering, the Medium would be my true to fit size.

      All the right features!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: XL
      • Height: 6'4"
      • Weight: 240lbs

      This jacket is my new daily driver, on and off the mountain.

      First off, thumbholes are a make or break it, so this jacket made it!
      I love the fleece back, which is plenty warm but breathes exceptionally well.
      The longer and stretchy cut helps the jacket sit well below by belt line, even while moving around.

      Tour-ability, Climb-ability

      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 180lbs

      Ohhhh man - here's the deal - I sweat like a beast when I tour. I feel like i was just born this way. It's essentially the downfall for most midlayers for me.

      When Backcountry was looking to design this jacket, I made sure that it not only could handle the conditions when things got blistery and cold, but also when I start to just rage and sweat my face off. This jacket does both, and i am super excited about being able to put this thing to work.

      The fit is also great, thin enough to layer with but also great on it's own for warmer days. I expect to use this not only touring but ice climbing as well. It's stretchy - which for ice climbing is clutch.

      The BEST Synthetic Jacket

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 170lbs

      I'm absolutely in love with this jacket. It's warm, breathable, and all-to-freakin'-comfortable. A lot of synthetic insulation jackets are toting stretch and breathable insulation, but they still don't have great stretch or great breathability. The Wolverine Cirque has stretchy face fabric, stretch insulation, and a *full* backpanel of stretchy fleece so this jacket really moves with you. The full fleece backpanel makes this jacket super breathable as well, it will definitely keep you comfortable on the skintrack.

      Serioulsly love this thing and will be my go-to midlayer for pretty much everything

      Also, the thumbholes on this jacket are 👌

      Hey Eric,
      Packability is on par with most of the other synthetic jackets in the class (Atom LT, Patagonia Nano Air, OR Cathode). It's maybe *slightly* larger because of the fleece backpanel (fleece doesn't compress as much as insulation). but it's a negligible difference.

      Hey Jonathan,
      I'd say you're most likely a Medium. The piece is trim but not skin tight. I'm 6ft, 170lbs, and comfortable wear a medium. You could also buy multiple sizes and return whichever doesn't work for ya.

      ok going to ask a pretty obvious question - until i saw this i was looking to buy an Atom LT (since i dont have one) and i do have the cotopaxi pacaya hoodie. Can anyone compare this jacket with those two in a more technical sense?

      Hey there! So the main difference in the Atom and the Wolverine Cirque is that our Wolverine jacket doesn't have insulation on the back - which for winter touring or hiking makes more sense to me because you have you pack against your back when you're touring so you're cutting out weight from the insulation without really losing any heat from your set up. I'm not super familiar with the Cotopaxi but looking at the specs it's not as durable in the face fabric as ours (they use a 20D vs our 40D fabric) and they have insulation all over the jacket except for the sized panels so it's going to be warmer than the Wolverine. If you're looking for a winter touring/hiking/backpacking layer, the Wolverine is the better choices. I find that I don't overheat as quickly in this style but I'm still warm on the downhill or when I stop moving in it.
