This is the lightweight jacket we love for the mountain, the alpine ascent and every other occasion. HEEL LIFT K DOWN HOODIE is the thermal jacket can be wore as a layering piece under a 3-layer Gore- Tex® or as a stand-alone, everyday jacket on cool days. Made of down, it compresses completely into its interior pocket. Good news, you won’t be afraid to get wet: The KDry™ Down, protected with a water repellency treatment, is covered by a Pertex® Quantum outer face, making it a perfect barrier in damp conditions. In addition to an active fit, the Dual Heel features a full coverage hood and a high fitting collar.
Durable Water Repellent treatment
DWR (durable water repellency) treatment is a coating that prevents water from soaking into a material by making it run down the surface, without penetrating. Optimal waterproof results are obtained in combination with a waterproof membrane.
FILL POWER is a unit of measurement that indicates the quality of a down, through its ability to trap air and release it by lofting. FILL POWER is the thermal-insulation capacity of a down.
K Dry Down
K Dry® Down has a water-repellent finish, so it does not absorb water and remains very light. The finish is PFC Free, to be environmentally kinder, and the RDS label guarantees the animals' welfare.
LOW IMPACT is a unique standard based on two essential eco-design criteria : eco-friendly material (at least 40% of the product weight must use eco-friendly material), and certifications (at least 80% of the product weight must be BLUESIGN® approved).
Pertex Quantum / Quantum Pro
Pertex Quantum and Quantum Pro fabrics are lightweight and packable. Their ripstop structures offer high abrasion resistance, which is even higher in the Pro range. Their water-repellent finish protects wearers against wind and light rain.
Responsible Down Standard
The RDS ensures that down and feathers come from ducks and geese that have been treated well. This means enabling them to live healthy lives, express innate behaviors, and not suffer from pain, fear or distress. The standard also follows the chain of custody from farm to product.
