What Is Down?
Simply put, it's nature's finest insulator. Down is light, fluffy clusters from the breasts and underbellies of geese, ducks and fowl. These clusters trap air into pockets, which is what makes down so warm and light.
What Is Fill Power?
All down is not the same. Down from larger, mature birds offers more insulating power and a better ability to loft. These features are reflected in a down's fill power, which measures the volume an ounce of down takes up. The higher the fill power, the better the insulating ability of the down, therefore fewer ounces provide greater warmth. When comparing down products, fill power is a good measure of warmth and quality. The Company Store® offers six types of down with varying fill powers.
