The Katabatic Tarn is designed from hem to hood to provide a superior warmth-to-weight ratio, and is sure to become your go-to puffy for lightweight adventures. Check out all the features and details in the tabs below.

Trim fit: Designed for use over a light baselayer or midlayer. If you are near the cusp on sizes and would like to be able to use it over a warmer/bulkier layer, or prefer a roomier fit, you’ll want to size up.

  • Responsibly Sourced Down

    Like many of our customers, we at Katabatic Gear are concerned with the environmental and animal welfare impact of our products. We are dedicated to a responsibly sourced, and very high quality product, just like our down supplier, Allied Feather and Down. They are certified through both the bluesign® and Responsible Down Standard® programs.

    850+ Fill Power HyperDRY™ Down

    We use the highest quality 850+ fill power HyperDRY™ hydrophobic down. Why choose down over synthetic insulation? Down is significantly more compressible, while still offering more generous loft and superior warmth to weight ratio. Additionally, synthetic insulation breaks down faster over the life of the product, losing loft and warmth more quickly than down. As a result, a down-filled product will stay in your kit longer, and out of the landfill, making down a better value and better choice for the environment.

    Pertex Quantum Eco Ripstop

    The best fabric you’ll find for the shell of an ultralight down jacket.
    1. Keeps your insulation drier: Best DWR we’ve tested
    2. Keeps your insulation loftier: Lightweight, soft, breathable, and downproof
    3. Reduces demand for raw materials: Eco version of Pertex Quantum is made from recycled yarns and maintains the fabric’s advanced performance qualities

    Pertex Quantum Taffeta

    This Pertex Quantum plain weave makes for a silky soft liner fabric on the inside of our down jackets. We get tons of customer feedback stating that it’s the most comfortable performance fabric to ever brush up against them – not as clammy or crinkly as other fabrics.
  • Sustainability


    Why yes, we do think it matters. It matters a lot!

    From the fine details to big picture goals, we know our decisions about materials, partnerships, and daily operations can have far reaching effects outside this building. Climate change affects us all. It is personal. We have more progress to make, but here are a few ways we currently prioritize sustainability.
    1. Reduce demand for raw materials
      1. We build our jackets with fabrics made from recycled yarns (Pertex Quantum ECO).
    2. Reduce the use of harmful chemicals
      1. Our fabric and down suppliers are bluesign® approved, so we know their processes and technologies are monitored and certified to minimize impact on people and the environment. All of our down is also RDS® (Responsible Down Standard) approved and certified to be ethically sourced.
    3. Reduce our carbon footprint and waste in landfills
      1. We’ve elected to have 100% of our Colorado shop’s electricity sourced from Xcel Energy’s Windsource program.
      2. We intentionally design gear with longevity in mind. Ultralight gear does not have to fall apart sooner than other gear.
      3. We donate gear to organizations and individuals in need, instead of sending it to the landfill.
      4. We recycle and/or reuse packaging, office waste, and personal waste in the shop.
      5. When available, our UPS shipments use the Carbon Neutral Offset program. This is currently not huge for us, but we’re working on having it applied to all of our UPS shipments. Once accomplished, we’ll use UPS for the majority of our shipping, in and out.

    While Katabatic Gear is committed to making UL gear that exceeds your expectations, it is equally important that we minimize our negative impact on the planet and its occupants. Whether it’s a special place in the backcountry, or the city you live in, we want to do our part to maintain healthy land, air, and water to keep this a comfy home for all. Though ours is not a perfect plan, we will continue to search for ways to improve our sustainability efforts, and minimize the impact of our operations on the planet.
