We’ve added a vest to the Super Down line. This vest provides an extra layer of protection between you and a cold front, and regulating core temperatures by trapping the warmth generated by your own body heat — all with sleeve free mobility.

There are three significant advancements in our Super Down products. Combined they create a significantly superior insulation piece for your system.
The first and most obvious is Toray Quixdown Water Repellent treatment for a Down Feather. Down has the highest warmth to weight ratios of any insulation material. The only draw back to Down is moisture, once wet Down looses all of its performance and has very long drying times. This is the reason Down is rarely used or recommended in hunting apparel.
Through nano-technology Toray has created a water repellent finish for Down feathers called Quixdown that makes a feather essentially waterproof. Toray Quixdown now eliminates the need for synthetic insulation which is significantly heavier, bulkier and not nearly as warm as Down.
As with most materials in this industry not all are created equal including the Down Feather. European Goose Down has a higher quality and loft than Down from other sources throughout the world. Goose Down bought from growers in Poland have the highest rating of quality and loft of all of the down sourced in Europe.
This allows our Super Down products to be lighter and warmer with a rating of 850+ on all of our Super Down Products.
3- STUNNER STRETCH by TORAY
Until now ultralight micro fabric used for packable insulation have not been able to stretch and restrict your movement, especially in a layering system that offers stretch in all of the other layers.
Toray has developed a new fabric technology called STUNNER STRETCH, which is a series of ultra-light down proof fabrics that stretch. The first of it’s kind, this totally changes the game in regards to design and the bulk of a packable insulation garment. With the ability to stretch we can now design a better fitting garment that is more comfortable to wear, maximizes your range of motion and that minimizes bulk and weight.
