Natural goose down is a near-perfect insulator, with incredible warmth-to-weight ratio and comfort unmatched by synthetics. Once wet, however, down loses its loft and has lengthy dry times. Toray QUIX DOWN® uses nanotechnology to bind a waterproof finish to the down clusters. The down retains its signature loft and compressibility, while remaining completely waterproof through more than 10 wash cycles.
We start with the finest, ethically sourced goose down available, sourced from Poland, home of the highest quality and highest loft-rated down feathers in the world. With a 92% Down and only 8% feather ratio, the fill rating in our Super Down garments is over 850.
Through nano-technology Toray has created a water repellent finish for down feathers calle QUIX DOWN® that makes each down cluster essentially waterproof. Toray’s QUIX DOWN® now eliminates the need for synthetic insulation which is significantly heavier, bulkier and not nearly as warm as down.
