The down vest is one of the most iconic outdoor garments ever. Our version of this timeless product is possibly the worlds lightest and warmest full-featured down vest. Wear it under a shell on colder days, or over a shirt when travelling. The 1000 fill power platinum down we use is unique in its ability to insulate, it is only us and a handful of other companies in the world that can afford to use this amazing natural material. It can be compressed to a minimal package, and lofts immediately when unpacked. The sensation of warmth is immediate when you put it on. The down is also treated for water resistance which makes it more durable, while keeping you warm and dry even in the wet. The shell material is a Japanese ultra-lightweight DWR-treated 34 g/m2 ripstop nylon that is so thin, you can distinguish the actual down clusters through the fabric. If you wear it as an outer garment, please note that although the ultralight fabric is durable for its weight, it can get torn by sharper objects.
1000 fill power goose down insulation that is fluorocarbon free, RDS-certified, bluesign-certified, allergen-free, 100% recyclable and completely sourcetrack verifiable. Ultralight DWR-treated outer fabric that is wind and water resistant. One chest pocket and two hand pockets insulated on the outside keeping hands and smart-phones protected and warm. Athletic fit, meant to go under a shell jacket. If you plan to wear it as a stand-alone vest, consider choosing one size larger than you normally do.
The Primaloft Vest is filled with synthetic fibres that have a very high insulation capacity — but they can not match 1000 fill power down. The upside is that the fabric and the insulation has higher breathability which makes it a better option for high pulse activities in cold conditions.
The Ultralight Down Jacket is the same product. But with arms. Obviously.
