The down jacket, essential for cold winters

The down jacket is the ultimate cold weather item. It is composed of an "envelope" fabric and an insulating padding, allowing it capture a lot of air and keep your body warm in order to brave the coldest days of winter. It has many variations: it can be padded with wadding or down (at Pyrenex we only use natural filling), be thin or thick ... It all depends on your needs and habits during winter. Choose a down jacket with a good amount of natural filling if you plan to go hiking in the mountains, opt instead for a thiner jacket with a lighter filling if you wear it mainly in town.
