Mountain Hunting Jacket
Designed for cool days and big climbs
Expel heat when climbing, retain heat when glassing
Made to keep you warm when you’re stopped and keep you cool when you’re moving
Developed for the active mobile hunter, this cool climate hunting jacket is packed with features to help you stay focused when it matters most.
Unzip to cool off. Zip up to warm up.
Large pit zips let you quickly expel excess body heat
We believe that when you’re active, a hunting jacket designed for cool weather must allow you to regulate your temperature. You can quickly build up heat when on the move leading to excessive perspiration. Maintain your stable body temperature by eliminating heat build-up with our generous pit zip functionality.
Picture this… a cool weather hunting jacket that regulates your thermal comfort
Do you find yourself in start/stop spot and stalk situations? Maintaining your temperature can be challenging when active in cool climates. It’s, for this reason, we have designed this cold climate hunting jacket to cope with high output activities such as climbing and backpacking, combined with periods of low activity such as ambush hunting, still-hunting and glassing. We understand the needs of the mobile hunter and recognise the requirement to regulate core body temperature. Thus we have equipped this hunting jacket with features that will enable you to both retain warmth and expel excess body heat.
Cinch your collar when the temperature begins to cool
Heat travels upwards through a process called passive convection. Our collar design prevents heat from escaping, keeping you warmer when not active.
Stop updrafts making you feel cold
Having airflow up into your jacket is great for cooling off, but can be your enemy as the temperature drops. Our drawcord hem allows for the best of both worlds. Cool off or keep warm.
Don’t get left behind by old technology…this cool climate jacket features premium solutions
Breathability and warmth were key concepts when developing the Boulder Summit Jacket for cool climates. We recognised the active hunter can easily overheat when mobile, even in cold conditions. For this reason, we chose not to include a windproof membrane within this jacket’s construction as it can easily lead to user discomfort due to overheating. Rather, we employ a tightly woven face fabric to help resist the wind, backed with a bonded fleece lining for warmth retention while inactive. Ensuring that this cool climate hunting jacket will help maintain comfort levels when the temps drop or your activity levels increase.
To ensure dependable performance, we have the jacket fitted out with reverse coil YKK® zippers and Duraflex cord locks. The fabric face is factory DWR (durable water repellent) treated to help repel light showers and snow.
Easily access your pockets while wearing a backpack
You no longer need to put up with frozen fingers when wearing a backpack in cold weather. Real-world hunting experience forced us to design a cool weather hunting jacket that gives access to all pockets, whether wearing a daypack, belt bag or full harness system.
Warm your hands with integrated internal kangaroo pockets
Our jacket features long 38cm (15″) pit ventilation zippers. We have configured our pit zippers to sit lower down the torso. This has a dual benefit;
- It allows for more of the torso area to be exposed to cooling when required.
- The pit zippers sit in line with the jacket’s hand pockets. As such, they may be used as a kangaroo pocket when you need to warm your hands by cupping them together inside the jacket.
Curl up to keep warm
When you curl up you expose less surface area to the surrounding environment, preventing heat leaving your body through a process known as radiative heat loss.
You remember the feeling of shivering on those bitterly cold mornings when waiting in ambush, and how you felt warmer as you curled your body up? It’s the little things that make the difference. Our Boulder Summit Jacket is designed for cool conditions, featuring an internal pocket bag construction that enables your hands to travel upward when inside the handwarmer pockets. Allowing you to curl up when sitting in a stand or behind a spotting scope.
Zippered cuffs that allow for temperature regulation
Zip up to create a form-fitting taper to retain warmth and prevent string slap when using a bow. Unzip to expel heat and help cool you down.
Keep your jacket on in cool conditions when field dressing
Hunting sometimes requires us to get down and dirty. Zippered cuffs allow you to roll your sleeves up to prevent garment spoilage when field dressing game.

Warmer than the original Boulder jacket, very comfortable and a bit noisier than the original.
The jacket is very practical. Packs into a small area, is light weight but quite warm. Lots of pockets. The only thing I would have liked is pockets in a position to be able to put my hands in to keep warm.
Hi Dan, thanks for your feedback and review. We specifically designed this jacket so that the hand warmer pockets may be accessed when wearing a backpack or bumbag. We found that with a conventional pocket design, the backpack hip belt or bumbag belt restricts access to the hand pockets. Please see the image in the link below.
Definitely a great product, Fits well, just get a size up to allow for other layers.
Great jacket, well thought out design.
Perfect for all seasons with layering, I bought a size bigger than usual to fit layers underneath, working well.
Lightweight but warm
Well placed Chest pockets for Rangefinder etc
Sizing is accurate with room for layering under
Overall good value and quality
Delivery was fast
