Insulation Guide

Down, the layer of feathers found closest to a duck’s or geese’s body, is nature’s greatest insulator - it’s lightweight, easily compressible and incredibly warm. All First Ascent Down Jackets are hypoallergenic, made of Responsibly Sourced Down (RDS), and DWR coated. Make sure you stay warm and protected this winter with your next perfect adventure companion.
