- Snowbee's new Nivalis Down Jacket is without doubt, the most technical garment they have ever made!For many years, mountaineers and polar explorers have relied on the unparalleled lightweight insulation properties of natural feather down to keep them warm in extreme conditions. The problem, however, is that down loses most of its thermal properties as soon as it gets wet. Many manufacturers have tried to avoid this by either treating the outer shell with a DWR finish, or using feather down with a hydrophobic treatment to repel water and prevent clumping. Both methods have their limitations... so Snowbee thought why not put the down in totally waterproof pockets to protect it? Problem solved!
- The natural down filling contains 90% duck-down, 10% feathers and uses a fill power of 700 for total warmth, while the waterproof membrane has a hydrostatic pressure resistance (waterproofness) of 5000mm to keep you dry and also provides total wind resistance.The main front zip and the two side hand-warmer pockets use waterproof zips and there is a fully adjustable, 3-panel hood made in the same insulated material as the body. Inside the jacket there are two deep pouch pockets at the bottom, for mobiles, wallets etc.
