Fill Power of the down/feather filling
For this down jacket filled 75/25, the fill power of the down/feather is guaranteed to be greater than or equal to 540 CUIN. The fill power is a measure of the down's thermal insulation capacity and its potential to "trap" air. Consequently, the higher the fill power (i.e. the higher the CUIN number), the more space it occupies and the more air it traps thereby delivering more thermal insulation.
The advantage of a duck down and feather filling (on the back and front of the down jacket)
The down's long-lasting fill power gives it 3 important qualities for hiking:
- Thermal insulation thanks to the air trapped in the down and feathers
- Ultra-lightweight: to provide equal warmth, feathers are lighter than synthetic wadding. This saves even more weight in your backpack
Thanks to our traceability system, we can guarantee the origin of the feathers, in compliance with our commitment to use responsibly sourced materials. Our suppliers are committed to using only feathers that come from ducks that are bred for their meat and which are plucked after slaughtering.
The advantages of a synthetic filling (for the arms, sides and hood)
Synthetic filling (wadding) is an effective alternative to feathers:
- it provides good thermal insulation when damp
- it increases breathability and is recommended for dynamic exercise (feathers are recommended for static or moderate activity)
Care instructions for a down jacket with down and feathers
The fabric used for this down jacket is water-repellent. It makes drops of water run off the fabric so it takes longer for water to get inside the down jacket, giving you time to find shelter. The down jacket is not waterproof. We therefore recommend you wear a waterproof jacket above the down jacket if you are under the rain for a long period.
Tips for storage and maintenance
Machine wash - 30° max - normal
Do not bleach
Tumble dry - low heat
Do not iron
Do not dry-clean

Restrictions on use
Not suitable for hiking in the rain
TESTS AND WARRANTY
All our down jackets are laboratory tested in 5 km/h winds and worn as a 3rd layer on a thermal mannequin (over a long sleeved T-shirt and fleece). Their level of thermal insulation is measured on a scale of 1 to 5, so that you can make the choice that best suits your use.
