What is the difference between down and feathers?


There's a common misconception that down and feathers are the same thing. In fact, they're quite different. Feathers are the outermost layer of the bird, which most of us recognize by its appearance. The feathers protect the bird from water and wind. The down on the other hand, is the soft, warming, undercoating of the bird. Down is bushy and looks like small fluffy tufts, it weighs almost nothing. This is also the reason why our down coats are so light yet warm. All our down coats are filled with 100% down (EN12934)
