After working up a sweat on the approach or skin track you quickly cool down once you’re on belay or transitioning for the descent–that’s where the Black Diamond Women’s Cold Forge Down Jacket comes in to play. Designed to provide instant warmth for frigid belays and frosty ridge line skin rips, the Cold Forge utilizes a combination of hydrophobic goose down and top-tier synthetic fibers for that perfect blend of warmth, water-resistance, compressibility, and loft. The DWR treated face and lining resists moisture from the inside and out helping to maintain the loft of the down in moist conditions. A tall collar protects your neck from frosty up slope winds, while the stretch gusseted cuffs seal heat in and help reduce the overall weight of the jacket. Two zippered hand pockets keep your knick-knacks secure, and two internal drop-in pockets are ideal for warming frozen skins when you’re lapping your favorite powder stash.
