DownTek 800fp Gray Duck Down. 3.1oz bag.
What is DownTek™?
Only the most amazing thing since the umbrella. Here’s the thing: Down is the single best insulation that exists. Period.
Its Achilles heel? Water. Rain. Sweat. Snow. Anything wet. Mother Nature designed down clusters to trap pockets of air. Those pockets are what insulate, keeping you warm and comfortable. Then moisture comes along and deflates the pockets of air, eliminating down’s ability to insulate.
Enter DownTek™ Water Repellent Down. DownTek™ shields those insulating-air-trapping-clusters from all wet things.
- Absorbs 30% less water than untreated down
- Dries 60% faster than untreated down
- Retains significantly more loft than untreated down after exposure to moisture
- DownTek™ retains same fill power as untreated down
- Water repellent treatment adds no measurable weight
- Products with DownTek™ remain drier and lightweight longer
- DownTek products can be washed without losing the ability to repel water. Best results when washed using Grangers Down Wash.
