Revolutionary stretch down technologyRevised and updated for 2020 the 750 fill power Stretch Down Hood features two revolutionary innovations in down technology; woven seamless down baffles and a water resistant 2-way stretchable outer fabric. The result is a breathable, durable and weather-resistant insulation garment, that quite possibly might be the most comfortable and versatile down hoodie you have ever worn — both on and off the mountain.
Why we made it
- Ground-breaking down technology with seamless baffles and stretchable fabric.
- 750 fill power down and eliminated cold spots means superior insulation performance.
- Truly versatile and weather resistant, use it for alpine activities or as an everyday jacket.
Revised and updated for 2020, the Stretch Down Hood featuring two ground-breaking innovations in down technology:
1) The unique woven baffle ‘I-tube’ technology means that the fabric itself is interlaced into double-walled compartments — no stitching is needed. This means fewer cold spots, amazing water and wind resistance and improved durability.
2) This new technology also allows for the use of stretch fibres in the fabric. The result is a two-way stretch down garment that provides unequalled comfort — you will not believe how stretchable it is.
Designed to be worn under a shell layer during alpine activities, but you will end up wearing it every time the temperature drops. It is just that comfortable.
The 750 fill power platinum down we use is of the highest quality. The jacket can be compressed, and lofts quickly when unpacked. The down is also treated for water resistance which makes it more durable, while keeping you warm and dry even in the wet.
Unique lightweight 2-way stretchable DWR-treated ‘I-tube’ outer fabric with woven seamless down baffles, improving wind and water resistance while reducing cold spots and down leakage.
Two hand pockets insulated on the outside keeping hands and equipment protected and warm.
Athletic, very stretchable fit, meant to go under a shell jacket. If you plan to wear it as a stand-alone jacket choose one size larger than you normally do.

Wash & Care
Wash the garment in cold water, maximum 30°C, by itself or with other garments in similar colors. Make sure to close all pockets and the front zipper. Do not use fabric softener.
After wash, tumble dry the jacket on low temperature until the jacket is dry. Make sure to close all pockets and the front zipper. Place a couple of tennis balls in the dryer – this will make the down distributed evenly within the jacket.
