The Qomolangma III Plateau Down Jacket was developed by Chinese down specialist Bosideng in response to extreme and rapidly changing environmental conditions. The jacket features sophisticated temperature management and refined details, and is extremely lightweight yet durable.

Nominee of the ISPO Award 2023: The Qomolangma III Plateau Down Jacket by Bosideng.

The Qomolangma III Plateau Down Jacket is designed specifically for the people who live and work on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau in China. It offers superior wind and abrasion resistance through the use of Cordura fabric and features the Bosideng TMP management system for adaptability to wide temperature swings.

Lightweight and Durable

The jacket is lightweight in relation to its thermal performance. This was a stated development goal, as every gram of extra weight increases the oxygen requirements of the inhabitants of this high altitude region, about a third of which is above 5,000 meters.

The weight reduction comes from the use of lightweight materials and a sophisticated down chamber structure, Bosideng's TMP (Thermal, Moisture, Pressure) management system. The patented 3D chamber structure of the insulation fill increases the air space between the down compartments, creating larger insulation spaces for better thermal performance without requiring more volume or insulation material. The innovative chamber structure also allows for a small pack size, making the jacket easy to transport.

Heat Reflective Lining and Special Collar Construction

For lasting comfort in rapidly changing weather conditions, the jacket has a heat-reflecting lining. In addition, the neckline and collar are designed to be easy to open and close, so you can respond quickly to changing temperatures. For example, a triangular elastic insert at the neckline provides better coverage and increases warmth in the neck area. Ventilation openings on the back and collar effectively dissipate excess heat, keeping the body dry and comfortable without cooling down.

A patented Nebula structure on the shoulder distributes and relieves pressure when carrying a pack.

Equipped with these features, the jacket provides perfect protection for many outdoor and work activities.

Useful Details

Bosideng has also thought about the removal of the jacket and has integrated special shoulder straps inside the jacket. They not only allow the jacket to be taken off quickly, but can also be worn on the back like a backpack. The detachable straps can also be adapted to other Bosideng products. Sunglasses and mobile devices can be easily stored in the modular pockets.

The life of the jacket can be extended with the included fabric patch kit.

This Convinced the Jury:

  • patented 3D down chamber structure
  • less filling material thanks to innovative design
  • heat reflective lining and special collar construction
  • adapts to rapid temperature changes

What the Jury Says:

"Rapid temperature changes place high demands on clothing, because on the one hand it has to retain heat and on the other hand it has to be able to release it again quickly. Bosideng has given a lot of thought here on various levels as to how this conflict of goals can be sensibly resolved."
