Women's St. Elias Jacket

St. Elias jacket is the flagship of Beringia’s complete outerwear system for high alpine mountain endeavors and 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 (ski 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 pack 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 built for mountain athletes that ski 100+ days per year in mind.

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.

Size: XS-L

Weight: Women's Medium jacket weighs 550g / 19.5oz.

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.

Beringia St. Elias Jacket & Bib

"Comfortable and performance-focused for deep days.

Never heard of Beringia? You’re not alone. The brand that’s often seen in the endless powder of Japan is coming stateside, and the St. Elias kit offers a good perspective on what to expect from this Tokyo-based company with a brand-new Bozeman, Mont. office. Inspired by the intrepid souls who first crossed the Bering Strait from Siberia to Alaska, the brand looks to innovate from both the technical and design aspects. The St. Elias is a Polartec Neoshell piece suited to powder days in-bounds and out. It’s incredibly light and boasts a knit backer plus outer slash vents, helmet-compatible hood, and backpack-friendly chest pockets. The ladies of the office appreciated the zip-off bib—sometimes pants get the job done, too."

Outperforms Arc'teryx

As a life-long skier in very cold conditions and die-hard fan of Arc'teryx, I was a little hesitant to try Berengia. Wow, I was instantly blown away. I don't know how a fabric can be both more breathable and warmer, but it is. It's also more comfortable and has more practical design elements (where pockets and zippers are located) to contain more warmth when you need it, and let it out when you don't. I've never been more satisfied with any ski clothing I've ever owned! If you're a serious skier looking for high-performance clothing, this is your brand. I'm 5'6" 130 lbs, I got the XS pant and S coat. both are plenty spacious for underlayers.

Big fan!

This shell is perfect for any and every day out, whether that be on the hill or in the backcountry. Contains pockets for all the needs and a well thought-out ventilation system that is one of a kind and even allows access to interior pockets - no jacket unzip required! The massive adjustable cuffs are also a favorite feature as they fit all sizes of gloves underneath. I've had no issues staying dry under this jacket despite my time in variety of wet climates like Washington and New Zealand. Going on 100 days in this one and haven't noticed any changes in quality thus far.


This is a “just out of the box” review and I’m compelled to write about it right away. This is the first jacket that I’ve purchased that has ALL of the features! I love what Beringia has done with it. The large front venting zippers (rather than under the armpit) will allow quick ventilation, access to the inner pockets, and a nice place to stuff my hands together when chilling or warming. There are 2 additional easily accessible storage pockets. The inner mesh pockets are generous and will be great for stuffing skins into. The weight of the jacket is surprisingly light considering all the features. The color, Azuki is beautiful and seems like a color will last for years, vs a fad color. I am 5’5 135lbs, wide shoulders. I’m usually between a small and medium. I went for the small. It fits great. It’s an expensive jacket but this one feels like it will last for years without wishing for another jacket. I can’t wait for the first tour!

Best shell ever

Truly the best outerwear/shell system I've ever owned. It is both comfortable and functional, waterproof but breathable for hiking, and protects me from the elements. The pockets & vents sit above my waist so they don't interfere with my backpack waist strap. And I love the color! I'm 5'4", 130lbs, and wear a small, which gives me enough space to layer underneath without being too big.
