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?
A decade or so ago, our product line manager, Melissa Minter, got roped into competing in the shovel race at the local Winter Carnival. The event involves sitting on a grain scoop snow shovel and holding a tow rope while being dragged by a horse down the snow-packed main street. Turns out she was pretty good at it and even won it a few times so we’ve taken to calling her ‘Shovelhead’.
