Thanks to our traceability system, we can guarantee the origin of the feathers, in compliance with our commitment to use responsibly sourced materials. Our suppliers are committed to using only feathers that come from ducks that are bred for their meat and which are plucked after slaughtering.
Fill Power of the down/feather filling
This 85% down / 15% feather down sleeveless jacket has a guaranteed fill power of 800 CUIN (European standard).
The fill power is a measure of the down's thermal insulation capacity and its potential to "trap" air. Consequently, the higher the fill power (i.e. the higher the CUIN number), the more space it occupies and the more air it traps thereby delivering more thermal insulation.
Weight of the filling
XS: 75 g
S: 79 g
M: 85 g
L: 91 g
XL: 98 g
2XL: 105 g
3XL: 112 g
The advantages of a duck down and feather filling
The down's long-lasting fill power gives it 3 important qualities for hiking:
- Thermal insulation thanks to the air trapped in the down and feathers
- Ultra-lightweight: to provide equal warmth, feathers are lighter than synthetic wadding. This saves even more weight in your backpack
Care advice for a gilet filled with down and feathers.
The sleeveless jacket will be worn throughout the winter and will certainly need to be washed. Follow the instructions by clicking the link below:

The advantages of a gilet
A sleeveless jacket keeps the body warm: it protects the chest, neck and lower back from the cold, as these areas are especially sensitive to the cold.
Given that there are no sleeves, it is not as heavy in the backpack, even more breathable when making a physical effort and extremely comfortable in use when worn under a jacket.
Worn underneath the TREK 100 Down jacket, it can provide 6°C extra warmth when compared to a down jacket worn without the sleeveless jacket.
In the event of rain
This sleeveless jacket's fabric is water repellent. It enables drops of water to run off the fabric so it takes longer for water to get inside the jacket, giving you time to find shelter. But the gilet is not waterproof.
We therefore recommend wearing a waterproof jacket over the gilet in the event of prolonged exposure to rain.
How to reactivate the water repellent property?
Follow the guide:
And use the care product: Wash-in waterproofing product that restores the water repellent properties
It restores the water repellent properties of the fabric and optimises the performance of your garment throughout its lifetime.
