Win a Cho Oyu down jacket from Sherpa Adventure Gear Winner

WINNER: Nick1812P

This competition has now closed.

Cho Oyu, the sixth highest mountain in the world, straddles the Tibet-Nepal border. And like its namesake, this sweater sits on the border too – somewhere between jacket territory and sweater land. Likely, you have already figured out how useful that "tweener" weight can be – particularly in the manifestation of a lightweight, top-notch goose down sweater. We are not joking when we say it's the thing you will find yourself wearing more than anything else, outdoors or in.

  • The 20 denier x 20 denier, Pertex® Quantum® nylon shell fabric is featherweight, windproof, water-resistant, downproof, and extremely strong for it's weight
  • 800 fill-power European goose down insulation provides superior warmth
  • Hem can be cinched in to seal out drafts
  • Handwarmer pockets are lined in tricot for warmth
  • Right side Napoleon chest pocket makes for less bulky layering (our mid-layer pieces typically have pockets on the left side; pockets don't "stack" on top of one another)
  • Shell fabric: Pertex® Quantum® – 100% triple ripstop Polyamide nylon treated with DWR (durable water repellent) finish
  • Insulation: 800 fill-power European goose down
  • Size: S-XXL -Weight:390g (13.8 oz)
