Supplying the all-weather reliability of synthetic insulation and the lightweight, compressible performance of down, the Sierra Designs Women’s DriDown Tov insulated jacket delivers lightweight warmth for everything from backpacking to climbing to around town use. Filled with premium 600 fill-power DriDown, the Women’s DriDown Tov jacket traps body heat to keep you warm on even the coldest of days and due to the compressibility of DriDown, the Women’s DriDown Tov jacket can be packed into the included stuff sack and is easily stowed in a pack to be pulled out when you need extra warmth.
Renowned for their efficiency in retaining heat and compressible properties, the feathers and fibers of down have an incredibly soft, comfortable feel and, despite advances in synthetic materials, continue to provide the best warmth-to-weight ratio of any insulation available. The one inherent weakness of down insulation is that it loses much of its ability to maintain warmth when it gets wet, but DriDown performs differently. Employing a unique, innovative polymer application, DriDown actually creates a hydrophobic finish on each individual plume of down. This treatment results in insulation that stays dry up to 7 times longer and dries 33% faster, should it become wet, than untreated down jackets. Perhaps most impressively, this allows the insulation to retain 98% of its loft which translates into maintained warmth that untreated down jackets simply cannot achieve.
Other features of the Women’s DriDown Tov jacket include a fitted adjustable hood with a stand up collar, a storm flap behind the front zipper, elastic cuffs with thumb holes, and wind-proof, rip-stop fabrics to seal out windy gusts and snow. Two zippered hand warmer pockets are ready to warm chilly hands and one interior zip pocket and one interior dump pocket can thaw frozen snacks or stow a pair of gloves.
