Down Jackets

Choosing the right down jacket for your environment is essential to keeping warm in varying weather conditions. Natural down is gram-to-gram warmer, has a loft that's more resistant to repeated packing, is lightweight and compressible, and with proper care will last a lifetime; however, synthetic down is water-resistant and the better choice for keeping you warm in wet environments where geese or duck down would lose its loft and insulation. You can also buy down that has been treated, for the best of both worlds. Before you buy, consider your environment to make sure that you choose the right type of down for you.
