The Jagged Edge Ophir Jacket is our premier insulated garment. On the outside, a Schoeller Dynamic shell fabric provides unparalleled weather protection, breathability, and durability. The Polartec Alpha insulation layer is unusually dry and comfortable to wear, representing the latest technology in synthetic knit breathable insulation. A bodymapped lining using Polartec Power Dry allows the entire fabric system to work together. Stretchy, warm and quiet (unlike traditional insulated shells), the Ophir Jacket will perform without reservation as a technical mountain jacket in the backcountry, or happily hang around town as an alternative to a quilted nylon down jacket.
The Jagged Edge Ophir Jackets are made from scratch here in the USA using 100% American and Swiss materials.
The Ophir Jacket's fabric construction is unique; the outer shell is made from Schoeller Dynamic- 90% nylon / 10% elastine @ 140 GSM and treated with Schoeller's high performing Extreme finish, which provides supreme water resistance while remaining highly breathable. The insulating layer is Polartec Alpha - 100% polyester @ 98 GSM. Alpha is a new kind of knit insulation originally developed for US Special Forces that is light and stretchy, warm when wet, and dries very quickly. The knit construction allows for superior breathability when compared to other insulations, and wears differently as its not stuffed into the jacket like down feathers or Primaloft. The Ophir Jacket's lining is a hybrid using ultra-dry and warm Polartec Power Dry -100% polyester, plaited, @ 132 GSM - which is bodymapped in the back of the jacket and the collar, and Brookwood Sportchute - 100% nylon 3D ripstop, @ 38 GSM - a very lightweight and unusually strong fabric originally developed for military parachutes. The Polartec Power Dry is a double knit fabric that moves moisture mechanically and without chemistry, while the Sportchute provides a thin and tough liner that allows the jacket to slip over other layers seamlessly.
