Goodbye to the days of bulky Michelin Man-style down jackets and hello to stylish, functional and high-performance down jackets for women. Down has long been popular insulation for jackets due to its naturally lofty construction which provides maximum warmth with minimal weight. Originally built for extreme alpine conditions, you can now find down in jackets for walking, commuting and everyday wear. With increased awareness around ethics and the environment, many brands are using RDS certified down. To get the best performance out of your down jacket, it should be worn in cold and dry conditions. If you need to wash it, please follow the strict guidelines using a downwash which prevents damage.
