If you’ve ever been out on the trail and had your down jacket or sleeping bag soaked, you’ll appreciate the significance of this innovation. Many of us want the light-weight and insulating benefits of down-filled winter gear but go for a synthetic fill because of it’s quick drying property and the peace of mind that it brings. Well, no more. The guys at Down Decor and Sierra Designs have introduced a technical down that is not only water-repellant but the ‘nano treatment also provides anti-microbial and anti-bacterial protection’ in outdoor gear. DownTek is a game changer, for sure.
