DownTek™ Water Repellent Down Insulation
Down sleeping bag insulation has long been the favorite of backpackers, thru-hikers, and mountaineers due to its relative light weight and ability to pack down small. While down bags generally cost more and require more care to keep dry in humid conditions, the soft feel of down is unsurpassed and extremely popular.
Insotect Flow™ Design
With baffles running head to toe, Insotect Flow™ construction contours the user’s body. This allows more insulation to rest closer to the user, providing improved fit and comfort. To overcome downshifting within vertical baffle construction Insotect Flow™ uses Insotect’s own proprietary FlowGate™ technology. These are gates staggered along the vertical thermal channels, keeping the insulation in place, eliminating any shifting and working to maintain uniform insulation coverage. Uniform insulation coverage delivers fewer cold spots.

What’s in a Name?
Until two centuries ago, ice was just an unfortunate side effect of winter. But in the early 1800s, one man saw dollar signs in frozen ponds and figured out how to store ice blocks throughout the year. Ice cutting in the dead of winter was a big economic and social event in past centuries. Ice was harvested from rivers, ponds and lakes and stored in ice houses. Ice and snow would be taken into the ice house and packed with insulation, often straw or sawdust, sometimes providing natural refrigeration for two years.
