THE EMS® FEATHER PACK DOWN JACKET
Durable Water Repellent coating is applied to the nylon shell to help shed light precipitation. It’s like a freshly-waxed car: water beads up and rolls right off. The down stays dry, you stay warm.
100% Ripstop Nylon
Woven with reinforcing threads in a crosshatch pattern, Ripstop Nylon prevents ripping and tearing. It’s one of the strongest forms of nylon around – they make parachutes out of this stuff.
Fill-power is a measurement of "loft", the amount of space and air trapped by the down, and corresponds to the number of cubic inches an ounce of down fills when allowed to fully expand. At 800 fill-power, the DownTek goose down in the EMS Feather Pack Jacket offers an incredible warmth-to-weight ratio and superior compressibility.
THE EVOLUTION OF DOWN
WHAT IS DOWNTEK™
DownTek™ starts with RDS Certified Down. The Responsible Down Standard symbolizes ethically-sourced down. DownTek™ coats this down with a proprietary treatment that enhances the water-repellent nature of the down clusters. Water beads on the surface rather than soaking in, allowing the down to retain its loft and keep you warm. While others have figured out how to make down water resistant, only DownTek™ broke the code on doing so without adding weight – and doing it in an environmentally-friendly way.
GREAT AS A LAYER
The Feather Pack Jacket is the ultimate in providing insulation in a layering system. Lofty 800-Fill down provides the optimum warmth-to-weight ratio, and is treated with Downtek water repellent to keep you dry—all in a lightweight, completely packable frame. The bottom line…whether it’s alone in light conditions, or underneath a waterproof shell in a heavy storm, Feather Pack can take whatever Mother Nature decides to dish out.
Don't be weighed down by your jacket. The Feather Pack is extremely light, delivering superior packability and lightweight, cold-weather performance. With the ability to pack in its own internal pocket the Feather Pack is truly the go anywhere jacket.
