    As warm as they come.

    In the bleakest hour of bitter cold conditions, there is a light—the Black Diamond Cold Forge Men's Hooded Down Jacket. The Cold Forge throws down serious warmth with a packable, low-bulk design, which makes it ideal for snowy and rock-bound pursuits. Primaloft Gold consists of 70% down and 30% synthetic insulation, so you get the lightweight, high-loft properties of down with the water-resistant warmth of synthetic—meaning you'll stay as warm in soggy conditions as you would on perfectly dry days. Even so, Black Diamond treated the Pertex face fabric and lining with a DWR treatment to repel water, because you don't want to get wet if you can avoid it.

    The Cold Forge is also cut slightly longer than most of Black Diamond's jackets, so you'll have extra coverage against drafts, snow, and nasty alpine cold. A drawcord hem gives you a further draft-defeating boost, and the adjustable, helmet-compatible hood keeps you cozy whether you're skiing on a frigid January morning or hunkering down in a snow cave. Additionally, this season's edition is equipped with gusseted underarms, which directly translates into unimpeded, overhead mobility. Not to mention, the Cold forge is equipped with a bevvy of pockets that keep all of your small necessities or snacks close at hand.

    • A versatile, hard-wearing insulated jacket for cold weather
    • bluesign-approved Pertex exterior is lightweight and durable
    • DWR treatment sheds light moisture and precipitation

    Amazing Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    I've owned the non-hooded version of this jacket for two years now. It was my main insulation on a 200 mile hike through the Sierras, and it is my go-to for around town. This jacket has been quite tough; I do a lot sitting around campsites/rocks with it on, and it holds up well against harsh treatment. It is comfortable, the elastic closures at the end of the sleeves are both effective and feel nice against skin. This is not the warmest jacket, and I does not quite do the job for me when temps drop below 30 degrees unless I throw on some fleece and a synthetic vest, then it is sufficient. However, I tend to run cold, and I know more hot blooded people with this jacket who feel more comfortable at colder temperatures. I've been fine wearing this jacket up to about 60 degrees. The water-resistance of this jacket has been great, I've worn it on cold, rainy walks and have no trouble staying warm, though some water tends to seep in at a few seems. The cut is certainly long on the torso, which I imagine is perfect for belaying. When standing around, the jacket can reach to just above the top of my back thighs, though it tends to sneak up closer to waistline if I am walking or more active, which makes it look less well fitting since then it scrunches in parts. Overall, this jacket does what it is intended to do very well. On my next thru-hike, I would consider something which weighs less, but I doubt I could find anything that weighs less and is equally durable or be able to still protect against cold when wet. For it's purposes of being an all-around jacket, I would certainly buy this again.

    Cozy and WARM

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large

    I've been using this jacket for all my winter mountaineering adventures in the PNW this season, and it has really come in handy... Mostly for when you stop and get lunch, gorge on summit treats, etc when the snow is blowing and the wind is howling!! It's super warm, comfy, and packs down to a manageable size so it's no issue to pack in your (larger) day pack. I say larger because it's winter and you should be carrying extra layers and avy-terrain related gear if you're venturing out that time of year.

    I can't wear this jacket if I'm actually moving about, because it is simply too warm and this isn't Siberia... But my body runs warm then cools down quick during breaks and it has been a godsend for those breaks.

    One minor note: The fit is only a little strange... Designed for the lankier types I think. Hasn't really been an issue in the field though.

    Perfect

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    Fit is perfect. Extremely warm wet and dry. When freezing out, I can often get by just wearing a tee shirt underneath. Insulated hood is a bonus. Warmest jacket I have ever worn. Never tried to pack it down though, so I don't expect to climb in it. But would be ripe for a winter belay. My daughter steals it from me so I should probably get her one also.

    One of best winter insulation layers!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    The Black Diamond Cold Forge Jacket is my go to super cold insulation layer. The Black Diamond Cold Forge Jacket (Hoody as well) has both PrimaLoft Gold and Down insulation, it is a blend. Due to this it makes for a all around insulation layer that works well in moisture laden areas where straight down would fail. The Black Diamond Cold Forge Jacket has a DWR pertex shell and a Pertex interior lining. Given that Black Diamond makes top notch gear, in over a year of outdoor, backpacking and even some usage while at the range, I have seen no issue at all. It packs down relatively small, provides great warmth and the fit is spot on for me. If you want a deep winter insulation layer, I say look no further than the Black Diamond Cold Forge Jacket!
