Gill 1062 Hydrophobe Down Jacket - Mens
Down is a fantastic natural insulator because it’s so light and lofty and traps air so effectively. Not so true if it gets wet.
So Gill developed this marine jacket with water-repellent down so that when (rather than if) it gets wet, it continues to perform.
The outer shell is windproof and water-repellent and the 650 Fill Power down has a fantastic warmth to weight ratio, you'll be surprised just how warm and light it is.
Fill Power is the universal rating system for goose and duck down. Higher quality down (higher Fill number) traps more insulating air pockets between its fine filaments than down with a lower Fill number. The Responsible Down Standard 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, so consumers can be confident that the down and feathers in the products they choose are truly RDS.
