The warmest synthetic insulation available on the market, this stuff is so warm because it mimics the structure of goose down - rigid stems that form a matrix of gaps, and softer fibers to fill those gaps, resulting in a warmer, more compressible insulation.
Q.Shield® DOWN infuses down fibers with water repellency to maintain insulating performance even when exposed to moisture - the achilles heel of untreated down. Because it's part of the molecular structure of the shell materials, it doesn't wear off, and will last as long as the material itself.
Dry Q® Active
The waterproof protection of a hard shell combined with superlight and stretch fabrics, giving it high-breathability and moisture-management akin to performance wear. Perfect for more aerobic activities.
Ripstop stops rips!
Ripstop fabrics are fabrics woven with special reinforcing technique that makes them resistant to tearing and ripping. Used in sails, hot air balloons, kites, and parachutes (disclaimer: jacket will not work as a parachute… or at least hasn’t been tested to).
