  • A ‘Down Batch Test Report” International Down Feather Laboratory (IDFL), the world’s largest and most respected down laboratory enclosed with every bag.

  • WaveLoft construction in the synthetic bags that loops thick layers of proprietary THERMOLITE® insulation together for extra loft and warmth.
