Technical information

The advantages of a duck down and feather filling

The durability and fill power properties of down give this jacket 3 qualities for hiking:
- Thermal insulation thanks to the air trapped in the down and feathers
- Ultra low weight: down is lighter than synthetic wadding while offering the same degree of warmth. This saves even more weight in your backpack
- Ultra-compressible

Inflating Power of down/feather filling

For this gilet with its 85% down /15% feathers filling, the filling power is guaranteed to be 660 CUIN/30 g or more (European standard).

The fill power is a measure of the down's thermal insulation capacity and its potential to "trap" air. Down with a higher filling power (higher CUIN/30 g number) will occupy more space, trap more air and provide greater thermal insulation.

The advantages of a gilet

A gilet helps to keep the body warm: it protects the chest, neck and kidneys from the cold, as these areas a especially sensitive to chills.
It is sleeveless so it saves weight in your backpack, provides even more breathability during exercise and excellent comfort of movement when worn under a jacket.
The sleeveless gilet is therefore especially appreciated during exertion while hiking.

In case of rain

This down gilet's fabric is water repellent, meaning the raindrops will slide off the surface of fabric. The water therefore takes longer to soak into the jacket, giving you time to find shelter. But the down gilet is not waterproof. We therefore recommend wearing a waterproof jacket on top in the event of prolonged exposure to rain.
