The down is, with no doubt, the best insulation material that is out there. But having the best down means nothing, when you dont use it properly. You have to use the right fabrics, construction and details, that take advantage of the insulation capabilities and let the down shine. Well, not shine. Insulate. So how do we do it?

About our materials
Ultralight (32 g/m2), strong and extremely breathable fabric (100% nylon), treated with ecological water repellent (DWR). That is the short description. The longer one would be: heck of a fabric, with outstanding lightweight to tear strenght ratio, fantastic breathability and reliable water repelency. Of course it is wind and down proof and moreover, it feels great even directly on skin.
Pertex Quantum MiniRip
The MiniRip version of Pertex Quantum fabric is a bit havier (35 g/m2), but you wont notice that. It has a ripstop structure to be a bit more rugged. Of course it has the same features as the standard version: breathability, lightness, DWR treatment. It is wind and down proof and we use it mostly on our Dpro Series.
The power of detail
Semi-automatic YKK zipper
This is something that we are really proud of. Our sleeping bags use semi-automatic 3 mm YKK zipper, that has a unique way of operation. It reduces the bulk and weight, it can be easilly operated with gloves on and having it means there is no reason for velcroes or buckles at the end of it.
