For traveling light in summer, this ultra-light bag provides reliable transport to the Land of Nod at just over two packable pounds, and it doesn’t skimp on features either. “Feely” draw cords, updated baffle height and lining fabric, trapezoidal foot box with a heater pocket, and the included compression stuff and storage sack all add up to some seriously plush woodland digs. Now with Marmot Down Defender! This special treatment creates highly water-resistant down offering an extra level of moisture protection for down exposed to wet environments.
Marmot Down Defender is an insurance policy for your down products. This specially treated highly water-resistant down offers an extra level of moisture protection for down exposed to wet environments. Down Defender helps prevent down from clumping and losing its loft when exposed to water, thereby greatly increasing its ability to keep you warm and comfortable.
The treatment coats the individual plumes of the down cluster with a DWR (durable water repellent) at the molecular level. It puts a hydrophobic layer on each individual plume of the cluster. This treatment is done during the down cleaning process. The finish is extremely durable allowing the down to maintain its water repellency over 20 washes. The treatment also enhances the down's integrity and the durability of the cluster helping to increase its longevity.
Down Defender products stay drier longer, maintain their loft better and dry faster than conventional untreated down products.
