The fill is high-loft traceable down, ethically-sourced and third-party certified to be non-live plucked and supplied from a facility that does not practice force feeding. The hard-wearing nylon shell sheds snow with a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, and a special high-sheen fabric on the shoulders enhances its overall moisture resistance.

Waterproof garments use waterproof-breathable technologies and are fully seam-taped. Water-resistant garments use waterproof-breathable technologies but their seams are not taped. Water-resistant garments repel water and protect against wind but are not made of waterproof fabric.
A windproof garment does not allow any air to permeate the fabric. A garment with windproof panels has panels of fabric that are totally windproof, but the rest of the garment may not be windproof. A wind-resistant garment resists some wind, but not as much as a garment that is windproof.
Durable water repellency
Usually referred to as DWR. A treatment made to fabrics that causes water to bead and run off instead of soaking through.
