The advantages of a synthetic wadding filling
Wadding provides an interesting alternative to feather down: - it provides good thermal insulation even when wet - it provides a little breathability and may be recommended for dynamic activity (down is recommended for static activity) - it is easy to look after: machine washable at 30°C and can be tumble-dried
The benefits of a sleeveless down jacket
A sleeveless down jacket helps to keep the body warm: it protects the chest, neck and kidneys - which are particularly sensitive to chills - from the cold. Being sleeveless it lightens the load in your backpack while providing even greater breathability during exercise and excellent comfort during movement when worn under a jacket. The sleeveless down jacket is therefore especially advantageous during high exertion while hiking.
A socre for comparing products' environmental impact
The product's environmental impact is calculated across its entire life cycle using different indicators. An overall ABCDE score is attributed to help you more readily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing the same type of product (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.).
