Derived from industrial polyester and recycled plastic bottles. These yarns use as much as 75% less crude oil than virgin fibres, and they divert waste from landfills and "up cycle" it into useful products. Trapping and regulating body temperature is unchanged. Quick to dry and loft remains the same even when wet.
DWR (DURABLE WATER REPELLENT)
Durable water repellent treatments protect fabrics from moisture saturation.
Down is a natural insulator with a high warmth-to-weight ratio. It is produced from a layer of fine feathers found under the tougher exterior feathers of ducks or geese. Down offers excellent thermal properties, has good lofting characteristics and traps small pockets of air efficiently, which creates a thermal barrier. Down insulation is rated by fill power, measured as the number of cubic inches displaced by a given ounce of down (in³/oz). Higher fill-power down will insulate better than lower fill-power down of the same weight.
Fabric is lightweight and comfortable.
