Incredibly warm, surprisingly tough.
Insanely puffy and durable, the La Sportiva Men's Cham 2.0 Down Jacket is ready to move with you while fighting off the elements. The tough nylon-blended construction is water-resistant and flexible, which protects you against wind, snow flurries, and surprise rain storms. Even though this jacket is packed with toasty 700-fill European goose down insulation and PrimaLoft Silver Hi Loft under the arms, it’s shockingly lightweight so you can climb or explore without excess bulk.
The Cham 2.0 Down Jacket uses a 3D micro-baffled baffle construction technique that ensures a premium warmth-to-weight ratio. Raised collar height combined with the technical single-hand adjustable hood keeps your face and head fully protected, yet is doesn’t limit visibility. This jacket is Bluesign Approved and features hand zip pockets to defrost chilly hands. So no matter what adventures you have planned this season, feel free to wear this jacket under a shell or on its own.

I really want to love this coat, but the hood/neck baffle is so poorly designed. i use this as a "belay" parka and stay warm all day in this coat, but as noted below, 1) good luck with a helmet 2) when you have it zipped all the way up, but not wearing the hood, the baffle hits your face at the nose (see Fiipp's pic) and 3) the zipper flap to protect your chin is insufficient - the stitching rubs on your face and we all know how that feels.
pros: i LOVE how the stitching has light reflective properties, warm as hell, huge pockets, many pockets.
i was able to get this coat for $135, which makes it worth it, but no way would i pay close to full retail for this.
Perfect Jacket. Worthless Hood.
I bought this jacket because I was looking for a good outer insulation layer for belaying or breaks when mountaineering. This jacket arrived and I was super thrilled. It had a good 1"-1.5" of loft on the body and a bit more on the upper yellow part and hood. The style looks really cool - enough so that I'd wear it around town. The internal pockets are great. The material feels durable. The cuffs have elastic draws to keep them out of the way. I was in love!
Everything was perfect until I tried it with a helmet. Who designed this!? There is not enough room in this jacket to fit a helmet and a head! The hood is too small and the jacket rides up (such that the bottom is at my waist and wind would blow under it), the hood also pulls my helmet back so that it's no longer sitting safely and properly on my head. If I try to zip the jacket up with the hood it covers my eyes. Attached is a picture of what I faced. I am 170lb, 5' 9" and bought the medium.
I want to love this jacket so much but the design of the hood makes this product non viable in a real alpine environment as not wearing a helmet is out of the question. As sad as it makes me, this jacket will have to go back.
