TECHNICAL INFORMATIONS

Thermal insulation

This down jacket, worn as a 3rd layer, has been certified for a comfort activity temperature of -18°C during a standardised test in a thermal chamber.

The model is wearing a synthetic long-sleeved T-shirt and a light fleece underneath. It works with a simulated 5 km/h wind.

In our heat comparison tool, it represents 4 stars.



We have also tested this model in "static" mode; the comfort temperature is -5°C in this case.

Heat-sealed compartments.

How to measure the fill power of a down and feather wadding?

The fill power is a measure of the down's thermal insulation capacity and its potential to "trap" air. It is expressed in CUIN (cubic inches). So, down with a higher fill power (higher CUIN number) will occupy more space, trap more air and provide greater thermal insulation. This puffer jacket, filled with 85% down and 15% feathers, has a guaranteed fill power of 660 CUIN (international standard) or over.

What are the benefits of a duck down and feather filling?

The robustness 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

Reducing the risk of feather loss

The main stitching of the compartments containing the down and feather are heat-sealed to prevent the loss of feathers.

In case of rain

The material of the quilted jacket is water repellent. It allows drops of water to slide off the fabric which delays the penetration of water into the quilted jacket while you get out of the rain. The shoulders and hood of the jacket, which are more exposed to the rain, are waterproof. We nevertheless recommend wearing a waterproof jacket over the quilted jacket in the event of prolonged exposure to the rain.

How to care for a down jacket?

The down jacket can be worn throughout the winter and will certainly need to be washed.
