The Sierra Designs Men's Stretch DriDown Hoody features treated 800-fill down insulation and stretch fabrics to provide a high level of warmth and flexibility for everything from winter backpacking to wear around town in cold winter weather conditions.
Due to the high loft and extreme compressibility of the 800-fill power down, the Stretch DriDown Hoody can be packed down small and easily stowed in a pack. 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 10 times longer and dries 30% faster than untreated down jackets. Perhaps most impressively, this allows the insulation to retain 2 times more loft than untreated down, which translates into maintained warmth that untreated down jackets simply cannot achieve.
The Stretch DriDown Hoody contains a soft, 4-way stretch lining with a membrane to provide a higher level of warmth and wind resistance than many down jackets while adding enhanced mobility for greater freedom of movement during strenuous activities. Other features of the Stretch DriDown Hoody include a uniquely designed fitted hood with a tall collar that seals in warmth when up and lays flat and clean behind the head when down, hidden cuff elastic, and a drawcord hem to keep drafts at bay. Two zippered hand warmer pockets lined with brushed tricot are ready to warm chilly hands while a strategically placed, low-bulk interior security pocket and two interior drop-in pockets offer additional storage options.
The Sierra Designs Men's Stretch DriDown Hoody has a regular cut to fit well over light and mid-weight layers or under weatherproof shells and is available in your choice of color and size.
