Norrona Falketind Down750 Hood Jacket Men
Technical clothing - with a focus on technicality.
The Norrona Falketind Down750 Hood Jacket Men is an intelligently composite-mapped natural and synthetic down jacket designed to deliver the best balance of warmth and water-resistance across all seasons. Highly insulating 750-fill natural down is distributed in a t-shirt shape across the body to act as an insulating shield for the core's body temperature. The sides, neck, lower arms, shoulders, and bottom back, on the other hand, are insulated with a water-resistant synthetic down to prevent loft and heat-loss from exposure to sweat, falling snow, and contact with ice or snow whilst moving. The insulated storm hood provides full head insulation in biting winds, and elasticated hems and cuffs seal in warmth. For durability, the shoulders and elbows have been reinforced to prevent premature wear from contact against rock or hooked-over-the-shoulder ice axes, and a highly abrasion-resistant 20-denier nylon made from 100% recycled fabrics is used. Other features include a DWR (durable water repellent) that uses no harmful PFCs and a Responsible Down Standard certification.
Intelligently warm and water-resistant without sacrificing lightweight compressibility, the Falketind Down750 Hood Jacket Men is ideal for use as a protective outer layer in warmer weather, a midlayer in winter conditions, or even just as a reliable backup for emergencies.

Responsible Down Standard (RDS)
The Responsible Down Standard is an independent organisation that recognises the ethical treatment of animals raised for their down and feathers. Developed by animal welfare groups, industry experts, brands, and retailers, the RDS certification is awarded to any product containing down and feather material that has been taken from animals whose welfare has been respected from first hatching. This includes no removal of down or feathers from live birds or force-feeding. Only products with 100% certified down and feathers carry the RDS logo.
