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.
A suitable outer layer for cool, dry days, or lightweight enough to be worn as a mid layer in colder climates.
750 down fill power, down is the ultimate insulation in terms of warmth-to-weight and warmth-to-compactability ratios.
Suitable for light exercise with a breathable rating of 27,000 g/m2/24hr.
Down fill is made up of 90% down, 10% feather.
RDS CERTIFIED DOWN
All down is Responsible Down Standard (RDS) certified.
The shell, lining and pocket bags are constructed of a 100% recycled nylon, an ultra lightweight 27g/m2 fabric.
Fabric is treated with a C-zero durable water repellent finish, making it resistant to light rain and drizzle.
Stitch through baffle construction means this isn't completely protective from strong winds but will offer suitable thermal insulation.
Warm without adding bulk, the Faraday is 200 g / 7.05 oz (size M)
Attention to Detail:
Features 4cm, stitch through baffle construction which makes this gilet exceptionally lightweight and creates high warmth retention in key locations on the body.
Internal Security Pocket
A zipped internal security pocket for storing valuable essentials, accessible by the wearer's right hand on the left side of the jacket.
Low-tensile webbing on sleeves & hem
Low-tensile webbing around the sleeves and hem give the right amount of grip, enhancing fit and increasing protection against the elements.
Made with two types of insulation, the main body of the gilet is filled with down, while flat panels on the back and top of the chest which are most exposed to rain use a 100% recycled polyester fill thermal insulation wadding which continues to insulate when wet and dries quickly.
External Lower Pockets with YKK Zip
Angled lower pockets are finished with a lightweight YKK Vislon zipper.
100% Recycled Ripstop Fabric
The recycled ripstop fabric is woven in a crosshatch pattern which is a special reinforcement technique that is resistant to tearing and ripping.
