With a functional, fashioninable quilted patterning, the Sierra Designs Women’s DriDown Vest combines functionality and style to deliver warmth and comfort for backcountry adventures or every day activities.
The vest is insulated with 650-fill power duck DriDown. Renowned for their efficiency in retaining heat and compressible properties, the ultra-lighweight 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. Perhaps most impressively, this allows the insulation to retain 2 times more loft than untreated down, which translates into maintained warmth that untreated down simply cannot achieve.
The DriDown Vest is constructed of a durable, heathered 70D shell and a light PU-coating and a DWR finish grant weather-resistance. Other features include two insulated hand warmer pockets, two front “flapped” pockets, two interior drop pockets, and a high, protective collar.
Available in your choice of color and size options, the Sierra Designs Women's DriDown Vest has a feminine, hour-glass shape and a regular cut that fits well over baselayers and low-profile midlayers or underneath weatherproof shells.
