Responsible Down Standard (RDS)
The Responsible Down Standard is an independent organisation that recognises the ethical treatment of animals raised for their down and feathers. Developed by animal welfare groups, industry experts, brands, and retailers, the RDS certification is awarded to any product containing down and feather material that has been taken from animals whose welfare has been respected from first hatching. This includes no removal of down or feathers from live birds or force-feeding. Only products with 100% certified down and feathers carry the RDS logo.
DWR (Durable Water Repellent) Finish
An ultra-thin chemical coating applied to technical garments as the first line of defence against wet weather. This coating creates thousands of densely packed polymer “hairs” that prevent water droplets from reaching the surface of the jacket and encourages them to bead together and roll off. The first line of defence against wet weather.
