What does the RDS* certification mean?
Ethical down certified by RDS (Responsible Down Standard).
Thanks to our traceability system, we can guarantee the origin of the feathers in accordance with our commitment to use responsible materials. Our suppliers are committed to using only feathers that come from ducks that are bred for their meat and which are plucked after slaughtering.
This 85% down / 15% feather down jacket has a guaranteed fill power equal or above 660 CUIN (European standard).
The fill power is a measure of the down's thermal insulation capacity and its potential to "trap" air. So, down with a higher fill power (high CUIN number) will occupy more space, trap more air and provide greater thermal insulation.
What are the benefits of a duck down and feather filling?
The durability and fill power 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 saves even more weight in your backpack
In case of rain
The material of the quilted jacket is water repellent. This means that drops of water roll off the fabric preventing them from soaking into the down jacket as quickly, giving you time to find some shelter. 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.
How to wash your feather down jacket
Here are a few tips: close all the zips on your down jacket and put it in the washing machine (synthetic cycle at 30°C).
In order to preserve the fill power and warmth, you can even put 2 tennis balls in the machine
NB: set a gentle spin cycle because :a fast spin cycle may create balls of feathers that are difficult to break up.

How to dry my down jacket
When you take your down jacket out of the washing machine, it will seem as if the down has gone. THE TUMBLE DRYER is the best way to restore the fill power of feathers. Put your down jacket in the tumble dryer with 2 tennis balls. Run 2-3 drying cycles.
If you do not have a tumble dryer, you can completely dry your down jacket on a drying rack by turning it over and tapping regularly.
How to restore the water-repellent properties
Over time, after washing and the wear and tear during use, the water repellent treatment becomes less effective.
This is how to re-activate the water repellent feature of your down jacket!
