This is it folks! Heaps of advancements in fabric, insulation, and design add up to the most evolved sleeping system on Earth. Incredibly lightweight Pertex© fabric forms a water-resistant, breathable barrier against the elements. 875+ fill-power goose down has been updated with our Down Defender treatment offering an extra level of moisture protection for sleeping bags exposed to wet environments. Flow Gate Construction allows warm air to circulate without allowing the down to shift.
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.
Pertex Quantum® is the lightest down-proof by construction fabric available. It is a true featherweight at around 30g/m2 and uses the finest yarns available with the maximum thread count.
