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.
3
The advantages of duck down and feather filling* (for the back and front of the down jacket)
The durable and inflating properties of the down give this jacket 3 qualities for hiking: - Thermal insulation thanks to the air trapped in the down and feathers - Ultra-light weight: down is lighter than synthetic wadding while offering the same degree of warmth. This allows you to lighten the load in your backpack - Ultra compactable * Our feathers come from Chinese ducks reared for their meat, we remove their feathers after slaughter. We hold the death certificates for these ducks.
4
The advantages of synthetic down filling (for the arms, sides and hood)
Synthetic down (wadding) 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 with down and feather filling
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: http://www.quechua.com/wash-your-down-jacket
6
In the event of rain
The material of this down 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.
7
Note regarding the light colour versions
The X-Light down jacket is made with a fine fabric in order to make it lightweight and compact. Please note that the feathers are slightly visible through the fabric of the red colour version of the range.

Test
All our down jackets have been laboratory tested on thermal manikins 5 km/h winds, reproducing hiking under moderate exertion. This allows you to make the best choice by comparing the degree of thermal insulation on a scale of 1 to 5.

Product test
Thermal chamber test It 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. Feather impermeability test We 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.

Response of the brand
Hello Mr. Vivek,

Thanks for your feedback  on the Quechua X-light jacket. I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you by our product.

I agree totally with you that the outer fabric of the X-light jacket (in general all down jackets) is light and that is due to the reasons as follows, these jackets are meant for usage on the mountains for a hiker which demands light weight and compactness which is guaranteed by the down inside and the light fabric outside, plus the light fabric allows the down inside to fluff up later on a longer use. Also, these are worn with a windproof or a rain jacket outside to tackle the light fabric. A solution for this now is the 3M tape available in the market, which seals the tear totally retaining the properties of the jacket completely. I apologize again for the improper response you had faced from our end earlier.

I stay at your disposal if you need any further assistance in future.

Sportively,
Sandeep NAIR

I bought this jacket a few months ago and I can honestly say it's probably the warmest jacket I own. Pair it with a waterproof outer jacket and you have a brilliant two layer system to battle the elements. It is also excellent value for money, I wish i had bought two.

Perfect lightweight jacket for urban use. Very light, but plenty warm for general use. Colours (grey/lime) accurate and the random stitching is a nice styling change from the usual Michelin-Man look.
Not waterproof or up to serious trekking, but otherwise tremendous value for money.

I went in for another design of down jacket, ended up with this. Bargain, tight fitting I went up a size, warm, decent light piece of kit. You won't be staying in a downpour in this, it's water resistant to a minor point, and not waterproof, I know this as I got wet, it absorbs the rain after a short exposure, also has tide marks after drying out. It comes with a bag, I haven't packet it down yet, but I keep it in one of the deep inside pockets, along with lightweight gloves and a hat. Overall, it's good fair weather down jacket and a bargain for less than £20.
