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.
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.
Model Measurements Female model is 5'8", 135 lbs wearing a medium jacket.

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."
