This separate review provides additional descriptive and performance information on the Sherpa Pangboche Down Sweater. Read our article Ultralight Three-Season Down Jackets State of the Market Report 2010 for a state-of-the-market analysis and comparative specifications and performance for a range of ultralight down jackets.

This is the first time I have worked with Sherpa Adventure Gear, and the name of the owners is (you guessed it) Sherpa. The Sherpas are one of the original mountain people of Nepal. Part of Sherpa Adventure Gear's mission is to recognize and honor the Sherpa people. Their new for fall 2010 Pangboche Down Sweater is named after Pangboche, the oldest Sherpa village in Nepal, estimated to have been built over 300 years ago. The jacket is elegantly designed and warm, but how suited is it for lightweight backpacking?
