The Yak

Powerful and majestic, the yak embodies ceaseless movement in the mountains. Their robust form has enabled them to survive the Ice Age and thrive in even the most arduous Himalayan conditions. Domesticated by alpine cultures for their wool, milk, and meat, they are perfect for riding or transporting large and heavy loads. The Sherpa of Sherpas, the yak is the best friend of the mountain climber.

Black Yak DNA

Black Yak was created in the Himalaya, and the high alpine remains a key element of the brand’s genetic code. From its color selection to the design langues of its products, Black Yak’s DNA reflects our Himalayan heritage.

Black Yak Development

Black Yak is an award-winning product leadership brand. Everything it makes goes through its rigorous design and development process, in collaboration with the alpine athletes who help create its products. To meet the Black Yak standard, a product must fulfill the original design concept by answering an unmet user need and bring innovation to the outdoor community.

Made for active alpinists, ski mountaineers, and anyone engaged in active movement in cold weather, the Hybrid Jacket is Black Yak’s most technical insulation layer. It features body-mapped insulation for precise performance: 750-fill goose down in the front, PrimaLoft Gold insulation in the sleeves and waist, and Polartec Alpha in the back for maximum breathability and stretch.
