The brief for the Faraday was to create a close-fitting, super-warm lightweight gilet that takes up minimal room in your pack so that you can carry it with you at all times.  The Faraday uses a combination of 90/10 goose down in the baffles and hydrophobic recycled polyester inside the flat panels to anchor the insulation on the shoulders and upper back to avoid cold spots. The 750-fill goose down is fully RDS certified and the outer shell is made from fully recycled performance rip-stop fabric to reduce the risk of tearing. Thanks to its 100% recycled ripstop fabric and DWR water repellent finish, the Faraday performs both as an outer layer over a T-shirt, fleece or sweater or as an excellent insulator under a parka when conditions demand.
