Technology & Materials
G-LOFT® | PREMIUM INSULATION TECHNOLOGY
Warm, light and breathable – even in extremely wet and cold weather: The revolutionary G-LOFT® insulation meets the highest standards and combines the benefits of natural down with the ruggedness of a synthetic fibre. And it is permanent. Due to the ”MEMORY EFFECT” the fibres automatically return to their original and unique form, providing warmth, even after repeated washing and hard use. G-LOFT® guarantees optimal thermal insulation and heat regulation, both indoors and outdoors.
CARINTHIA CQ DOWN™ | DUCK & GOOSE DOWN
Offering an excellent weight to warmth ratio, this high quality duck and goose down is produced and selected according to strict quality and care criteria. The “fill power” (also “loft” or “fill power”) is the most important measure of the quality of down. It indicates the volume of a certain mass of down after some time of compression. As a rule of thumb, the more CUIN filling power, the better the heat retention capacity.
