Hydroloft is a synthetic insulation system designed to offer exceptional breathability and superior comfort whilst maintaining a lightweight design. It offers water resistance, is fast drying and performs extremely well in wet conditions.

Hydroloft works by using super-fine fibres which mimic the structure of traditional down insulation, creating small air pockets that allow moisture to escape and trap heat. The main benefits of this type of insulation compared to traditional synthetic and down alternatives are increased breathability, lighter weight and lower bulk, water resistance and fast drying.

It is able to perform better in wet conditions than traditional methods of insulation thanks to the synthetic fibre construction. These fibres do not absorb water, and combined with a water repellent outer layer can dry quickly to perform well in adverse conditions.

H-down TECH


Hydrodown insulation offers an innovative new take on nature’s traditional method of insulation. It offers the same benefits of natural down insulation without any of the downsides; enabling you to stay dry, warm, comfortable and travel light.

Hydrodown is created by giving goose down a durable water repellent (DWR) treatment. This ensures that is better able to resist the effects of wet weather, dries quickly and retains insulation properties even when it does become damp. Ensuring that like traditional down it has an excellent warmth to weight ratio that makes it perfect for cold weather expeditions, but it is better prepared to perform when the weather becomes wet.

The key benefits of this type of insulation are that it is compressible and packable, breathable, has a great warmth to weight ratio, repels moisture, retains lost and dries fast for quick recovery. This means that Hydrodown is the perfect option for mountain weather and cold weather adventures where you need to travel light and fast but don’t want to compromise on performance or comfort.
