DUCKSBACK Barren Grounds Parka


 Product Description

Named after the harsh, unforgiving yet beautiful barren grounds of Alaska, this jacket is will keep you warm wherever your barren grounds happen to be! 

The fabric is the most water resistant non-coated or laminated fabric I know of, hence the name DUCKSBACK—as water runs off of the fabric like water running off of a duck's back. Completely vapor permeable & comes with an inside pocket for a cell phone.

Designed for those of us that depend on exceptional equipment in the field, we offer the Barren Ground Jacket that will work with you (and unlike so much of the equipment today), not against you. If you are a avid hunter, glassing the surrounding hills or a shutter bug waiting patiently for that one great picture or maybe just out for a vigorous hike, the Barren Ground may have what you are looking for.

This garment works best if you wear the fishnet top as a first layer and loose fitting non-coated layers over it.


  • High collar for retaining more of your precious heat.
  • Shoulder face non-slip rubberized material.
  • #10 YKK full length zipper with a snapping wind flap.
  • Strait cuff cut, with adjustable wrist.
  • Two large cargo pockets at the waist level with snap closure.
  • Hand warmer pockets with side entry on each of the cargo pockets.
  • A draw cord at the waist, inside of the jacket.
  • Insulated with the L-6 Lamilite for just right temperature regulation.
  • Completely machine washable & dryable.

When you receive this jacket, run water over the fabric and you will see what I have seen: water running down the fabric like water running down a duck's back—hence the name. As for its vapor permeability, it will work best if you wear under garments that are themselves vapor permeable. I strongly recommend—for the absolute best results—that the very first layer you wear is the fishnet top. It will allow the entirety of moist vapor coming out of your pores to move quickly away from your skin surface. The fishnet underwear should always be loose fitting. Remember the fishnet material is a barrier separating the surface of your skin from the next layer of fabric; that is its primary purpose: so that the vapor can easily move away from you. All subsequent layers of clothing should also be loose fitting so as not to be constricting of your movements and never coated with anything. This will give the moist vapor the very best chance of moving through all layers (including the Lamilite) and out of the garment—meaning through the DUCKSBACK cloth as well.
