The New Standard of Comfort

Down is light, lofty and warm – until it gets wet when cold and clumping set in. DownTek water-repellent down solves the problem. Down clusters are treated to repel water to maintain insulating power, keeping you warmer and drier, longer. We’re proud to be one of the first companies to use the newest DownTek PFC-Free down that stays dry 50% longer than before –without adding extra weight or leaving a carbon footprint.
