With the lowest possible weight, down offers you perfect thermal insulation and breathability at the same time
When it comes to insulation, there is probably nothing like down as a filling material. A high-quality down jacket guarantees cosy warmth and high comfort at low weight. Down is an ingenious natural product that combines lightness with excellent warmth properties.
100 % recycled down according to the Global Recycling Standard
For the warming filling in these products we use 100% recycled down according to the Global Recycling Standard. In cooperation with a textile recycler, the duck and goose down is removed from old bedding and clothing and recycled in an energy-efficient process.
The down is first washed, sterilized at high temperatures and then sorted. Broken feathers and down are removed so that only the best down is used in VAUDE products.
The excellent insulation properties are retained and we can use them to create new products that offer high breathability and a completely natural thermal climate with the lowest weight.
This recycling management enables valuable natural products to be reused in a sensible way. The effort to clean, prepare and reuse already used down is about the same as the extraction and first-time processing of new down. You can find more information about recycled down in our sustainability report.
