These look pretty good tbh particularly at the price. 

What does ethically sourced 90/10 ratio mean. 

In reply to deacondeacon:

Good to see a classic brand re-emerging!  Their sleeping bags were legendary when I first got interested in not freezing to death in a tent.

Reading this I realised my Point Five Freney ripstop Goretex down jacket is 40 years old and still going... though maybe not "waterproof" any more...

I'm really tempted to grab one of these. Does anyone have any recent info on them or anything?

No address on contact details, website and Facebook is very amateurish (nothing personal, It just looks very basic, with spelling mistakes etc).

Don't won't to lose my money lol

I asked Point 5 your question and they answered: "The jacket uses only RDS responsible down licence number 007169. It's 90% down 10% feather."

Still got a Point Five sleeping bag from 1974, so if new company is as good as the old one expect a long term friend.

What's the 'pin back system for belaying'?
