In 2011, we went on our first trip to Nepal and fell in love with the country, our guide, and his family. Upon our return home, we created "Jackets for Jasper" to support their children's schooling and help make a difference in their lives. Now we have expanded to support several children and their families, and have been assisting to rebuild homes and villages in the wake of the 2015 earthquakes.
Our jackets are made in Nepal by our manufacturer Rajan and his team of 7 tailors. When they are not making your Jackets for Jasper jacket they make clothing and gear for mountaineers.
In addition to looking great, you'll feel great: 100% of jacket profits go to pay for Resmi, Jasper and Komol to attend school from Kindergarten through college. A Heart-Warming Down Jacket, indeed.

- Perfect for layering underneath a raincoat or wearing as your outer jacket over a light layer
- Lightweight ripstop nylon taffeta shell is water resistant
- Stormflap behind the full-length front zipper keeps breezes out
- Durable YKK zipper will not let you down when zipping it up

Please note: heat (from a dryer, hot water or an iron) will melt and damage the wax lining on the inside of the fabric, resulting in reduced performance for water resistance and down-containment.
