Insulated with PrimaLoft® Silver 750, a revolutionary combination of 750 fill down (60%) and PrimaLoft® fibers (40%), it has some very special abilities: it absorbs water ten times slower than 100% down, retains 95% of its warmth if it does get wet and dries four times faster than down. This translates to incredible warming performance in an expanded range of conditions. The micro-grid ripstop shell is water-resistant and has a tight weave – no feathers escape. The perfect jacket when you're looking for warmth that won't get wet.

Nangpala Hooded Jacket - Men's
I have owned many down Jackets but never have I wore a more comfortable well thought out jacket.. Its cool in the mild days and keeps you warm on the coldest days.. The hand warmers in your pockets have changed the game for me as I am a photographer that has my hands in the elements always. The combination of down and primo loft is amazing.. I am always worried about weather with my down jacket. Thanks to Sherpa now I do not have to worry..
I am currently a brand ambassador for Sherpa Adventure Gear and received the Nangpala Jacket. I love this jacket, it is incredibly warm and the mix of natural down and synthetic fill works incredibly well! It's so important to keep warm when in cold environments and this down Jacket does such a great job. Love how it packs down super small as well!
I took this jacket on a 3 day backpacking trip. Before it arrived I was worried that the weight would be a factor. When it came out of the box I was amazed at how light it was! I actually ordered two of them, to have a color selection, and the weight of both of the jackets was far less than what I was expecting ONE of the jackets would be. On top of this, I was very happy that attached to the inside of the jacket (with a plastic strand that is meant to be discarded) is a stuff sack for the jacket itself. I crammed it into the sack and was happy to see that it crushed down to a very manageable size, no need to use a compression sack.
While on the trip we had moderate weather for the beginning (45-50 degrees during the day and about 30-35 at night), but progressed to high winds and dumped 4-6 inches of snow on us during the night with temperatures to make the snow stick for hours in the AM. Unlike cheap jackets that make you sweat immediately at moderate temperatures but are wholly inadequate at even cool temps, this jacket breathed very nicely at the moderate and then kept me snug and happy during the colder spells. I think if you were to take a trip to 0-20 degree day weather, you would need a thick insulation layer to add the some density or maybe even switch to a different jacket.
During the night, as I don't backpack with a pillow, I stuffed the jacket into the hood of my sleeping bag and it made for a very comfortable and cool pillow that supported my head.
After the trip I was able to toss the jacket into the washer (as per the instructions on the liner) and when I took it out of the machine it was almost completely dry! Hang-dried it and it was ready to put back into the closet within in hour. The jacket even maintained a crease in the arms that came from the factory!
The only reason I give this jacket 4.5/5 as opposed to a 5/5 is because the description states it will NOT lose any down, and I saw 2 or three feathers that had come out during th...
