Inflating Power of down/feather filling
For this down jacket filled 75/25, the inflating power of the down/feather is guaranteed to be greater than or equal to 540 CUIN. The fill power is a measure of the down's thermal insulation capacity and its potential to "trap" air. Down with higher fill power takes up more space, trapping more air and providing greater thermal insulation.
The advantages of duck down and feather filling (for the back and front of the down jacket)
The long-term fill power of the down gives it the following 3 qualities needed for hiking:
- Thermal insulation thanks to the air trapped in the down and the feathers
- Ultra-lightweight: down is lighter than synthetic padding while offering the same degree of warmth. This enables less weight to be carried in the rucksack
- Ultra compressible
*As part of our commitment to using responsible production methods, we have decided to work only with RDS (Responsible Down Standard) certified suppliers.This certification guarantees that the down and feathers come from ducks and geese bred for their meat, and not subjected to cruelty.

The advantages of synthetic down filling (for the arms, sides and hood)
Synthetic down (wadded) filling provides an appealing alternative to feather down:
- it provides good thermal insulation even when wet
- it provides a little breathability and may be recommended for dynamic activity (down is recommended for static or moderate activity).
Care advice for a down jacket filled with down and feathers
The down jacket can be worn throughout the winter and will certainly need to be washed. Follow our advice by clicking on the link below:
In the event of rain
The material of the quilted jacket is water repellent. It allows drops of water to slide off the fabric which delays penetration of water into the jacket while you get out of the rain. But the down jacket is not waterproof. We therefore recommend wearing a waterproof jacket over the down jacket in the event of prolonged exposure to rain.
Note regarding the light color versions
The X-Light down jacket is made with a fine fabric in order to make it lightweight and compact. Note that the feathers can be seen slightly due to transparency on the pink colors in the range.
Thermal chamber test\nIt allows us to check our design choices. We reproduce the temperature, wind and humidity conditions that you encounter in the mountains. In this way we can adapt our thermal insulation where you most need it.\n\nFeather impermeability test\nWe use a test machine to ensure that the feathers do not escape from your jacket during your activities. Our fabrics are thus "featherproof" and so ensure lasting warmth.
