Kathmandu have just launched their new, Heli Thermore Jacket made from Ecodown. While down remains a favourite for those seeking warmth in their jackets, it isn’t your only choice when it comes to insulation.
Ecodown is a synthetic down option that can keep you warm, even in damp conditions – and Thermore™ is a leading player in this field. Synthetic down insulation is the best of both worlds – embracing the versatile, sustainable threads of synthetic down insulation, with the warmth and loft that down offers.
Synthetic down insulation is created from 100% recycled polyester. Post-consumer PET bottles are broken down into resin and reinvented as polyester fibres. These ultrafine fibres become the fill-in Kathmandu’s Heli Thermore Ecodown jacket, trapping warmth within air pockets and mimicking the insulating effects of down.
Benefits of Kathmandu’s Heli Thermore (Ecodown) Jacket:
- PETA approval as a vegan product
- 100% recycled fibre fill
- Drying quicker than a standard down jacket
- bluesign® approval to ensure environmental friendliness
