Thanks to our traceability system, we can guarantee the origin of the feathers in accordance with our commitment to use responsible materials. Our suppliers are committed to using only feathers that come from ducks that are bred for their meat and which are plucked after slaughtering.
This 85% down, 15% feather padded gilet has a guaranteed minimum fill power of 660 CUIN. The fill power is a measure of the down's thermal insulation capacity and its potential to "trap" air. So, down with a higher fill power (higher CUIN number) will occupy more space, trap more air and provide greater thermal insulation.

The advantages of duck down and feather filling*
The durability and fill power properties of down give this jacket 3 qualities for hiking:
- Thermal insulation thanks to the air trapped in the down and feathers
- Ultra low weight: down is lighter than synthetic wadding while offering the same degree of warmth. This saves even more weight in your backpack
Care advice for a gilet filled with down and feather
The down jacket can be worn throughout the winter and will certainly need to be washed. Follow our guidance by copying the link below:

2/ tumble dry with 2 or 3 tennis balls, and repeat 2 or 3 times until it is completely dry.
The advantages of a gilet
A gilet helps to keep the body warm: it protects the chest, neck and kidneys from the cold, as these areas a especially sensitive to chills.
It is sleeveless so it saves weight in your backpack, provides even more breathability during exercise and excellent comfort of movement when worn under a jacket.
The sleeveless gilet is therefore especially appreciated during exertion while hiking.
In case of rain
This down gilet's fabric is water repellent, meaning the raindrops will slide off the surface of fabric. The water therefore takes longer to soak into the jacket, giving you time to find shelter. But the down gilet is not waterproof. We therefore recommend wearing a waterproof jacket on top in the event of prolonged exposure to rain.
