    Forge Hooded Down Jacket

    Every little bit of warmth is precious when you're in the alpine. Black Diamond designed the Forge Hooded Down Jacket to keep you warm on ice climbs, wind-blasted ridges, and chilly transitions. While warm, down can be tricky to wear in a storm because it loses its insulating properties once it gets wet. Black Diamond put a DWR treatment on the 700-fill down and on the face fabric for protection from light precipitation. Underarm gussets give you a wide range of motion on the ascent, and the whole jacket stows in its chest pocket with a carabiner loop so you can easily clip it to your harness or stuff it in your pack when the sun pops out.

    • Jacket streamlined for comfort and performance on alpine missions
    • Durable ripstop fabric holds up to the abrasions of alpine travel
    • Down insulation provides lightweight, lofty warmth in low temps
    • Down is treated with DWR as an added layer of moisture protection
    • Gusseted underarms provide added range of motion when climbing
    • Adjustable, climbing helmet-compatible hood adds coverage in storms
    • Lightweight stretch cuffs keep sleeves in place when layering up
    • Jacket stows in chest pocket for easy carry when the sun comes out
    • Item #BLD00ZW

    Quality build, BUT poor fit

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    Quality build jacket, attention to details. Unfortunately BD seem to be aiming for skinny type of climbers, as this jacket has very long hands and tight chest abd armpits. For reference, I'm 5'8, 170 lb, 42 inch chest, 30 inch waist. Normally Medium fits me fine, but this jacket is too tight, as the same happens to Outdoor Research products and Arcteryx Proton and Atom lines. I guess I have to lose my muscle mass, grow a beard and become skinny hipster to wear these jackets. Ha!

    Great value!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Not quite as impressive as my TNF, Patagonia, or MHW jackets, but for the price, I'm satisfied. Not crazy about the tan color, but that isn't critical. 4 stars!

    lightweight, comfortable and WARM!

    What more do you want in a jacket? The person that I got it for hardly ever takes it off.

    BD FTW

    I could not be more pleased with this jacket. I got this jacket as an alternative to my Mountain Hardware Stretch Down - however I am finding this my go to. It is nice and warm but the breathabillity is great. I can really wear this in all weather as I do not overheat during the Indian Summer we have been having, but is stands up and keeps me warm during some nasty storms. Good job BD.
