The down inflation capacity and durability provides 3 qualities for hiking:
- Thermal insulation owing to the air trapped in the down and feathers Extremely light: providing the same warmth as synthetic wadding, down is lighter. This means your bag stays light - Very compressible * Our down is made from Chinese ducks reared for their meat, we recover the down after slaughter. We keep the duck death certificates

The down jacket can be worn throughout the winter and will definitely need to be washed. Caring for a product containing down is an extremely delicate process. However it is possible to look after your own down jacket, you simply have to know a few tips. Before any cleaning operation, please refer to the maintenance instructions and the notes on the website specifically designed for this purpose. This will prevent disappointment or failures.
And if it rains....
The down material is waterproof. It allows water droplets to slide across the fabric delaying water infiltration in the down jacket, giving you time to reach shelter. However the down jacket is not waterproof. We therefore recommend wearing a waterproof jacket underneath the down jacket in the case of long periods of rain.
