What is duck down?
Duck down is the clusters of very fine feathers, or fluff, beneath a duck’s tougher exterior feathers.
Down has incredible insulation power because it has a high loft (fluffiness)
which creates air pockets. These air pockets trap the warmth from your body
to maintain your temperature.
The quality of the down is measured by its loft, also known as fill power. Loft is the volume per
ounce that the down occupies when a standard weight is placed on top of it. The higher the loft,
the more insulation it provides per ounce.
What are the benefits of duck down?
Duck down performs best in dry, cold environments where damp will not limit its performance.
THE BENEFITS OF DUCK DOWN INCLUDE:
High loft for heat retention
excellent warmth to weight ratio
Loft is retained even after being compressed
