Product Overview

Down is a fantastic natural insulator because it’s so light and lofty and traps air so effectively. Not so true if it gets wet. Gill has developed the Men's Hydrophobe Down Vest with water-repellent down, so that when (rather than if) it gets wet, it continues to perform. The outer shell is windproof and water-repellent and the 650 fill power down has a fantastic warmth to weight ratio, you’ll be surprised just how warm and light it is. Outer: 100% nylon, Inner: 90% duck down and 10% feather. Imported.
