Details

During the development process, our designer and outdoor athletes set out to create a lightweight technical mid-layer jacket for hard mountain days' skiing, climbing, mountaineering and trekking.

The culmination of painstaking research and a rigorous field testing process, the Stratam Hooded Jacket offers what our athletes deem essential in a mid-layer: breathability, added warmth, durability and protection - all in a design that permits total freedom of movement.

It’s made with our Hima-Layer™ Stratam dual-layer fabric. It features superfine yak wool in a terry loop construction on the inside to insulate in cold conditions and wick moisture during intense workouts.

As an outer layer in milder weather, the yak wool's moisture transfer abilities and breathability excel, and while the outer surface of eco friendly DuPont™ Sorona® is not 100% wind or water proof - properties that we believe are best kept to your hard-shell - it does offer the protection required in milder conditions. A dash of elastane provides enhanced stretch.

We've packed the Stratam Hooded Jacket with useful features too: thumb-loops, stash pockets and a stowaway fitted helmet compatible hood.

Each time you step out on the mountain you need to be ready for all conditions. The Stratam Hooded Jacket has been developed for versatility, to perform whatever the conditions.

A flexible mid layer with hood, suitable for wearing under a helmet

The culmination of painstaking research and a rigorous field testing process, the Stratam Hooded Jacket offers what our athletes deem essential in a mid layer: breathability, added warmth, durability and protection - all in a design that permits total freedom of movement. A yak wool interior offers the natural functional benefits we love: warmth, breathability and wicking properties.

Giving back to the Himalayan nomads

kora was founded with the aim of supporting the communities of the Kegawa Herders' Cooperative, by buying their yak wool directly to create our layers.

A collective of more than 90 families in the Yushu Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, our friends live all year around at 4,500m.

We buy this wool at a set mid-market rate throughout the buying season in order to offer price certainty, and in addition we pay a 10% stipend.

Azog Jacket

Well made light jacket. Worn over a base layer it keeps you warm and is breathable for when you work up a sweat. If you use a wind/water proof shell it will keep you warm in cold temperatures. The jacket is thin enough to layer a coat or whatever you may need over it. I find it very versatile. Since I have had it only had it a couple of months and have not worn it in extremely cold conditions I am not able to say how it will hold up to years of use. I would recommend to anyone looking for a quality light mid-layer. I did have an issue with the first jacket I received but a message to their customer service and I had a new jacket within a week.

good stuff but still with niggles

(No relation to Stu above)Left off a review of this until I had worn it for a season and forgot to do so, so its now a few years old. Fits well. I am 42 in chest average build and a medium fits exactly. Its very expensive but very well made. I use it for Himalayan trekking up to 5000+ metres and it does the job. The air temperature is a few degrees above freezing in bright sunlight but drops badly in cloud or high winds. I bought it for a main layer over a t shirt. I find it too hot on its own in sunlight and use it mainly as a throw-on when I stop or as an underlayer with something windproof or watertight in bad weather.

The thumb loops are great, the equivalent of light mittens which allow gloveless work on packs, tents etc and really add to the feeling of warmth. They do tear easily though – mine have been patched several times although I do wear rings which probably doesnt help. The rest of it has worn extremely well. The full front zip allows good ventilation and the neck fits snugly- if you roll the hood up to act as a neck scarf, you wont need a Buff or simliar. The hood itself is useful, I usually dont need anything warmer than that unless its snowing.

A small chest pocket would improve it – lipsalve, sunscreen tend to fall out of the side pockets. My main gripe is the side panels which are more permeable than the front and back. I suppose the idea is ventilation for sweaty exercise, especically running. , but this doesn’t work on cold dry trekking. I can sweat buckets up there but find that the side panels end up being cold spots – big ones - when the sun goes in and the wind springs up, the front panels are pretty wind proof so if the whole thing was made like that it would improve it for me.

So I revert to old tech fleece-lined Pertex which works better in wind at ½ the price.

But as a layer for stops and/or evening in the tent or lodge its great. I automatically goes into the pack for summer and winter.

Great Jacket

I love this jacket. It saw more use last winter than any other I own. It was definitely my go-to for nordic skiing. Warmth to weight ratio is decent; warmth to bulk ratio is superb. The main fabric has some wind resistance, but very little meaningful water resistance. The side panels are noticeably more breathable and less warm--which is the idea. As a consequence, the body is less warm than the Xenolith Sweater, but the arms are warmer. It works well to add a vest over this jacket to add warmth.

The high collar is perfect, and the little roll-up hood is very convenient. The buttons hood buttons seem like a good idea, but are too hard to undo with the jacket on. However, the hood works just fine tucked down the back of the collar (without buttoning).

The fit is very trim and seems thermally efficient. The sleeves are extra trim--I have to take my watch off to put the jacket on or take it off. Surprisingly, I can actually fit the Xenolith Sweater under this jacket. It's a bit tight, but it's a very warm combination.
