NEW Alpkit Filoment Hoody with water resistant Nikwax Hydrophobic Down

Love your down jacket but wish you could wear it in the rain? Well thanks to Nikwax and it's revolutionary, environmentally friendly technology you can.

Outdoor gear brand Alpkit is using PFC-free Nikwax Hydrophobic Down in its Filoment Hoody jackets for men and women. Packed with Responsible Down Standard (RDS) duck down and offering 650 fill power, the Filoment Hoody will keep you dry and cosy this winter. Highly compact, the jacket can be easily stashed in your pack, taking up little room.

Down is the optimum material for very cold conditions, providing exceptional insulation for the absolute minimum of weight. But until recently its big drawback has been its vulnerability to water. When down gets wet it loses its ability to keep you warm. However, Nikwax Hydrophobic Down provides the optimum outdoor insulation solution – water-resistance, low weight and high insulation, without the use of hazardous persistent chemicals.

  • You can shake Nikwax Hydrophobic Down in water for 1000 minutes and it still will not sink.
  • You can clean items with Nikwax Down Wash Direct to maintain its water-resistant and insulation properties.
  • Combine this performance with Alpkit clothing design and you have a go-anywhere performance product.

Alpkit's Filoment hoody - SRP £130 - features an active, functional cut made to extend over your hips with a long back length. The external breast pocket is big enough to stash your phone, gps or wallet in without having to undo your main zip so keeping you insulated.
