DescriptionDown and synthetic insulations both have unique benefits in the mountains, and the Black Diamond Hot Forge Hybrid Jacket combines the two for functional warmth in ever-changing weather conditions. We used PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation Down Blend, made from 70% DWR-treated goose down and 30% PrimaLoft synthetic fibers, in the body of the jacket for warm, highly compressible performance. In more exposed areas, we used PrimaLoft Gold insulation to retain maximum warmth even when wet. The jacket packs down into an internal zip pocket with a carabiner clip loop for easy attachment to your harness on multi-pitch routes.
- Packs into internal stretch mesh pocket with carabiner clip loop
- Two zippered hand pockets
- Two internal drop pockets
- Stretch cuffs
- Drawcord hem
- Size: S-XL

Hot Forge Hybrid Jacket is rated out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Matthew from Great layering, or cool weather jacket. I bought this primarily a non-hooded jacket to layer with while on ski patrol. It serves that function very well. It is not bulky, it is light, and moves with you very well. The material is silky smooth under anything and does not inhibit mobility at all. By itself, it is very versatile. It serves as a jacket you can wear if you are moving in and out of the cold, but would not stand up to prolonged cold well. With a sweater underneath, it is very warm and blocks a little wind. The only knock I would give it, is the material is not super durable. BD has done such a good job of keeping it light and silky, it will develop runs very easy. Not a deal breaker, but worthy of note. Great jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alex from Great Lightweight Jacket This has quickly become one of my favorite jackets to wear each day. The jacket is extreamly lightweight and packable. At first I was a bit skeptical about the hybrid down/synthetic filling. I was sure proven wrong. The down insulation is located in all the places that matter and the synthetic insulation is nice and soft when worn on the arms. In true BD fashion, this jacket is extreamly well crafted. Inside chest pocket. Two inside open pockets at the bottom. Velvety neck material to make sure it is extra comfortable. Can't wait to use this jacket as my under layer on the slopes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alleycat from Perfect for a layer under a Gortex jacket I use this jacket for alpine and back country skiing. The fit is a slim fit and fits under my storm jackets nicely. I'm 6'5" and 200 lbs and it fits well as a size large. I'd recommend this jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gary from Warm and Light So far this jacket has been perfect some some chilly late fall days and evenings here in KY. The temps have been down in the 20's at night and this jacket, over a light long sleeve button down is perfect! It's super warm, but light as can be. I pack it down into it's own pocket and take it in my commuter bag daily. It takes up hardly any space so it'll be perfect for any travel and outdoor adventures. I'm 6'2" and 180 lbs. and the large is a great fit! It's fitted enough to look great without being a puffed up marshmallow and the sleeves and back are perfect length for long arms. I also got the green color and LOVE it! It stands out and I get compliments all the time. Certainly not like every other down jacket you see out there. Quality is excellent as always with Black Diamond. Get this jacket NOW!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Luke from Comfortable, Great Fit, Warm I bought the Hot Forge Hybrid Jacket about a month ago. I normally wear a Large, however, I chose a medium because I wanted a snug fit upon which I could properly layer clothing. The jacket fits extremely comfortably with a soft interior and exterior. The jacket is warm enough for most hikes and skiing trips, however, high in the mountains I am unsure if it would stand alone. I have no complaints with this product and highly recommend it to others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rob from Great Fit and Features Perfect as a Midlayer on heavy snow cold days or Outerlayer on light snow days or around town and inside too. Nice slender fit. Only issue is the down starting poking though from Day 1.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Evan from Highly Functional Over the past year, I've found this jacket to be the perfect combo of lightweight and durability. I own multiple other Puffy's but this is my consistent go to. It is packable, and the down/synthetic mix allows for durability and warmth when moving or wearing a pack, especially in wet conditions under a gortex.
