Collectively, these plumes form a loose-fill insulation with enviable compressibility performance and thermal properties equivalent to 600 fill power down. A proprietary finish ensures warmth even in wet conditions:
Gold Insulation: The best type of synthetic insulation out there. Developed to suit the needs of the US army.
Clo Value of 0.92 - which will provide you with the same amount of warmth as 600 fill-power down would.
