    Pertex® Shield fabrics provide lightweight waterproof protection whilst remaining highly breathable.
    Nikwax Hydrophobic Down
    Down is naturally breathable, which makes it very comfortable to wear, but this comes with a drawback – it can absorb moisture
    This moisture can overload the fibres, or cause them to stick together, stripping the down of its insulative properties
    To mitigate this effect, Rab apply a Nikwax water repellent “hydrophobic” treatment to the down
    This treatment significantly improves the performance of the down by preventing the clusters from absorbing moisture and helping it to retain its loft.
    In the event that the down does become waterlogged, the treatment significantly decreases the time it takes the down to dry and its loft to recover.
    It’s worth noting that hydrophobic treatment means that a down jacket will perform better in wet conditions, but it’s not intended to make a garment waterproof.
    If you’re looking for a down jacket that is also waterproof you’ll want something that combines insulation with a waterproof material. - like Pertex Shield
    Box-wall garments are made from distinct box-shaped compartments that run horizontally around the body
    Because the box-shaped baffles are not pinched at the edges, there is space for the down to fully loft throughout the chamber allowing for an even distribution of down and vastly reducing the likelihood of cold spots
    The extra material used to create each box means that these garments are usually heavier and less packable
    However, in the most extreme temperatures, they are often the best solution
    Storage, down should be stored uncompressed and out of direct sunlight in a dry, cool place.
    If your down product gets damp, air it thoroughly and make sure it is completely dry before putting it back into storage
    If the product is still damp after airing, a short cycle in a tumble dryer on a cool setting should help to complete the drying and restore the loft
