This cold-weather gem combines the comfort of a shirt with the insulation of a down jacket. Recycled polyester shell and 650-fill down provide cozy warmth that can be worn alone or layered under a shell. Featuring a full front zip and zippered chest pockets, the coat has stylish box quilting and a tailored, feminine fit.
Marmot Down Defender is an insurance policy for your down garments. This specially treated highly water-resistant down offers an extra level of moisture protection for down garments 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.
We've currently used Down Defender in our Snowsports, Urban Exploration and Kids collections.
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 garments stay drier longer, maintain their loft better and dry faster than conventional untreated down jackets.
