About the material: EX Down
World class, high quality down
Montbell's premium down comes from water fowl that live in regions with seasonal temperature extremes. The down balls from birds in such regions are characteristically much larger.
Large down balls hold more warm air, which translates to needing less down to provide exceptional warmth retention.
Lightweight yet warm
When compared by weight to lower quality down, an equal amount of premium down is loftier and has better warmth retaining properties.
About the material: Ballistic Airlight
Ballistic Airlight is made using the same nylon polymer as our Ballistic material and a highly technical production process to create extremely fine, super thin threads. These threads are then woven into ultralight, gossamer fabrics that share the same characteristics as Ballistic: one and a half times more abrasion resistance than other similar weight fabrics and boasts three times the tear strength of nylons that are almost 20% heavier. Additionally, Ballistic Airlight is often woven using different techniques to create fabrics with radically different characteristics, such as fabrics that allow the garment to stretch or fabrics that "breathe" to release built up heat and moisture.
Information for Down Leakage and Clumping (38-137)
Since this product is designed to be as lightweight and compact as possible, it is made using extremely thin, lightweight materials. Although the material is treated to prevent down leakage, it is possible for down to work itself out through the space between individual fibers. In the event that small feather spines or down clusters work their way through the fabric it is best to reach behind the fabric and pull the offending down cluster BACK INTO its down chamber. Gently massage the area to promote "self sealing" and re-align the fabric threads, while better distributing the down insulation.
