Coolmax® garments are easy to wash, dry quickly and do not shrink.


DOWN IMPACT

This garment guarantees you a minimum of 80% down and 20% feathers for optimal warmth. A high quality 4­layer construction encases the down in 2 inner layers preventing it from escaping through the seams while at the same time protecting it from outside moisture.
