Ethically Sourced Fill:
Down is an incredible product with amazing thermal properties. Unfortunately, the down industry has a dark side to it. Most down products come from untraceable sources, many of which are the product of live plucking. Live plucking of birds is extremely cruel, and something we aren’t willing to have anything to do with. We have gone to great lengths to ensure that 100% of our fill products are either sourced from fully traced, ethical supply chains, or premium quality synthetic alternatives.
Our search for a responsible down product led us to a new product from Primaloft called Black Thermoplume. This is a new fill that is 100% synthetic, yet it behaves just like 550 loft down, with similar warmth to weight and packability but improved performance (water resistant or not) in wet weather and in breathability. This is the closest thing to down without being down.
