Down Fill vs Fill Weight

Down Fill

Fill power is the international rating system used to measure the loft and the relative quality of the down used in the garment. This number is calculated based on how much space one millilitre a down cluster takes up in a cylindrical tube.

Fill Weight

The fill weight of a garment represents the amount of down which the garment holds, this number is measured in grams in South Africa. The more down which the garment holds, the warmer the garment will be.

All of our jackets are 650 fill power - what is the difference?

It all depends on the down ratio.
