Technical Information

1
Inflating Power of down/feather filling
For this down jacket with its 85/15 filling, the inflating power is guaranteed to be 660 CUIN or above. 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.
2
The advantages of duck down and feather filling*
The durable and inflating properties of down give this jacket 3 qualities for hiking: - Thermal insulation thanks to the air trapped in the down and feathers - Ultra low weight: down is lighter than synthetic wadding while offering the same degree of warmth. This helps to further lighten the load in your backpack - Ultra compressibility * Our feathers come from Chinese ducks bred for their meat. We obtain the feathers after slaughter. We hold the death certificates for the ducks

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 below link: http://www.quechua.com/wash-your-down-jacket
4
In case of rain
The material of the quilted jacket is water repellent. It allows drops of water to slide off the fabric which delays the penetration of water into the quilted jacket while you get out of the rain. But the quilted jacket is not waterproof. We therefore recommend wearing a waterproof jacket over the quilted jacket in the event of prolonged exposure to the rain.

Maintenance tips
1. Synthetic cycle, 30°C, with little detergent. Place two tennis balls in the machine during the wash cycle to puff up the down. 2. Rinse twice. 3. - Tumble-dry recommended, synthetic programme with 2 tennis balls to puff up the down. - Dry flat also possible. The down must be positioned to dry flat so that air can circulate on both sides. Turn over the jacket and tap to prevent the feathers from clumping. Leave to dry for a minimum of 4 days.

Used for 3 to 6 months
I bought this in the sale so it was great value. I needed it to fit under my waterproof but also be able to layer up underneath for extra warmth. It does that perfectly and I have used it on the school run but also on a recent trip to tieta del fuego and Cape horn.
Super lightweight, wind resistant,
Would be nice if it had a pack pocket.
Great Jacket

I love this jacket and have worn it almost every day since I bought it. I've been surprised by how comfortable it has been in the varying temperatures and conditions of winter in and around a village in the Scottish Highlands. Only on really wet and or windy days have I had to add an extra thin water/windproof layer.
The internal pockets are plenty big enough to take a UK OS map. I also like the extra length at the back.
On the down side; I'd have preferred the security loop in the right pocket rather than the left, or one in each; the sleeves are long enough but an extra couple of centimetres would ensure that they don't pull out of gloves when stretching.
Great value for money.
warm, water repellant, almost windproof.
a bit tight around the hips.

I needed something soft, warm and easy to wear under a salomon ski jacket, this has done the trick as it's very comfy. It packs down into it's own pocket easily and very lightweight. In a word versatile!
