Already a favourite for four-season use, the Hot Forge Hybrid Hoody uses a combination of down blend and synthetic insulations to provide maximum warmth in a wide range of weather conditions. PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation Down Blend reduces bulk and increases warmth, while PrimaLoft Gold synthetic insulation adds water resistance in more exposed areas. From early spring at the crags to high summer in the alpine and chilly days around town, the Black Diamond Hot Forge Hybrid Hoody is a versatile, multi-insulation puffy that offers classic warmth across a range of pursuits and weather conditions. In the body of the Hot Forge Hybrid, we used PrimaLoft Gold Insulation Down Blend, made from 70% DWR-treated goose down and 30% PrimaLoft synthetic fibers, for highly packable warmth with elevated weather resistance. In the high-exposure areas of the hood, shoulders and arms, we used PrimaLoft Gold synthetic insulation for performance that’s warm when wet. The adjustable hood fits easily over a climbing helmet, and the jacket packs into its internal stretch mesh pocket and features a carabiner clip loop. Two zippered hand pockets and two internal drop pockets stash gloves, energy foods or cold hands. Adjustable, climbing-helmet-compatible hood stows in internal stretch-mesh chest pocket with carabiner clip loop.
