St. Elias jacket is the flagship of Beringia’s complete outerwear system for active winter sports.
Redesigned in 2022 with our new Täsmä precision-response fabric that variably adjusts to weather conditions, assuring the perfect balance of protection, breathability and comfort during activities that require unpredictable alternation between periods of high performance such as skiing and climbing (touring). The St. Elias Jacket has proven to be the most popular snow system in Hokkaido’s deep powder backcountry over the last decade.
Two main chest pockets can be accessed with a backpack or harness, and are roomy enough to hold essentials. Inside, double mesh pouches cradle goggles, gloves or skins.
The interior pouches can be accessed from the outside slash vents, which allow you to dump excess heat faster than pit zips and are easier to reach.
Asymmetrical cuffs have velcro closures that adjust and close quickly with any size glove or mitt. This jacket is loaded with essentials and new Vislon zippers for ease of operation.
Pairing the SE Jacket with the St. Elias bib creates a total integrated system for those with serious mountain ambitions.
Wearing St. Elias Jacket and Bib over our Diomede superfine merino baselayer and Lightstream breathable insulation offers a complete protective, thermo-regulating, and full-body stretch system, eliminating the need for extra bulky layers.

Fit: We would call the St. Elias fit an all-mountain fit – looser, more comfortable than an alpinist fit. With enough room for layering. Usually, true to size fit. If you are on the smaller end of your size, or prefer a snugger fit, sizing down works well. Sleeves are generous in length.
