Nikwax Hydrophobic Down
Absorbs less water, dries faster, retains loft, fluorocarbon free. Untreated down has a 95% weight difference when wet, the industry standard competitor gains a 65% difference when wet, and NHD only becomes 51% heavier when wet.
Ripstop stops rips!
Ripstop fabrics are fabrics woven with special reinforcing technique that makes them resistant to tearing and ripping. Used in sails, hot air balloons, kites, and parachutes (disclaimer: jacket will not work as a parachute… or at least hasn’t been tested to).
Ultra-featherweight, downproof, windproof, and breathable fabric, with a high durability for its weight.
Responsible Down Standard
The RDS ensures that down and feathers come from humanely-treated and healthy duck and geese, from farm to product.
