The Bergans Sauda Down Jacket is an extra warm, windproof down jacket, designed to protect you from extreme cold. This jacket has been a firm favourite of Ray and the Woodlore Team and has been worn extensively overseas and within the UK. We were delighted to hear that it was available again after a short time out of production, and could not wait to get it back in stock.

Despite its incredible warmth, the jacket remains lightweight and highly compressible thanks to its filling of superior-quality down. A water-repellent outer fabric, teamed with premium build quality, helps to make this a reliable garment that you can depend on in winter.

While the Sauda Jacket makes an ideal outer layer for use on a winter expedition, it is equally perfect as your go-to jacket for those cold days back at home. It is of course also suitable for ski touring and mountaineering use, as well as cold evenings spent around camp while on safari or in desert conditions. Thanks to its down filling, and long, under arm ventilation zips the Sauda Jacket is highly breathable, helping to transport moisture away from your skin.

Warmth and comfort is ensured with the inclusion of deep pockets, snug wrist-warming cuffs with thumb-holes, an extended back panel to keep draughts out, a fixed, adjustable, helmet compatible hood and long zip vents under the arms.

  I really like this jacket, it feels great and does what it's supposed to do by keep the chill out. It feels very, very comfortable whilst walking. I am not a slow walker so it's great to have zips under the arms to let the air circulate when you need it to. The pockets are great, just big enough to put your accessories in. Some reviewers had said the hood was noisy, no complaints on that score. I should of purchased this a long time a go. Hopefully the weather will turn a bit colder so I can give it a good test. I must admit I was fairly surprised how light it is. Recommended, Thanks again Woodlore.

  A really lovely jacket. The pit zips make it so much more practical to use when you are moving about. Very well made, and very warm. The hood is a bit noisy when you move your head around.

  Ths is a very warm coat. I wish I'd bought it earlier in the winter. Nice active fit, just wish the hood liner was made of silent material. 5 star service from Woodlore and very quick shipment.

  Great jacket, surprisingly lightweight given how warm it is. Haven’t tested its waterproofing qualities yet but the adjustable hood certainly kept me protected from a bitingly cold wind. All pockets zipped and deep giving enough storage space for accessories like phone, maps, gloves and hat. Love this jacket and would thoroughly recommend it.

  Before reviewing any kit I buy, I really like to take it out and use it for an extended period of time for its intended purpose before reviewing it. This allows me to give an honest review of my own experiences. I took the Bergans Sauda Down Jacket around the whole of Norway and Sweden at the start of this year in a trip that truly was an experience of a lifetime. I was practically living in this jacket throughout the trip and relying on it in the Arctic Circle. Even standing for hours watching the aurora borealis up a mountain until gone midnight in Abisko National Park in temperatures lower than -20. This jacket preformed better than I could have expected. Of course you can't just wear a t-shirt under it in those temperatures, you'd obviously wear a number of layers, but it did the job admirably. Without experiencing it yourself, it's very difficult to explain what those temperatures feel like, but wearing a jacket such as this really makes a significant difference to your comfort. I can't fault it, and it does the job, very light (especially useful for long hikes) has underarm zippers to allow heat out to reduce sweating inside the jacket which could later freeze, and deep warm pockets. All of the zippers were sturdy, strong and easy to use with gloves on and didn't cause problems. One issue I did have was that the lining in the hood, when wearing it, it would rustle loudly as it moves against your ears, although this seems minor, if you can't hear your buddy calling for help, or if you have to keep taking the hood off while trying to talk/hear someone, it can cause a number of frustrating problems. For this jacket to have 5/5 stars it would need another lining on the inside of the hood, maybe a cotton one? a hat didn't help the issue at all. the lining would simply rub against that causing the same issue. A complete removal of the inside of the lining or at least attaching the Cotton fabric on the inside to stop it rubbing would be the best in my opinion! Great jackets all in all and highly recommend!
