GILL’s industry best Hydrophobe Down Jacket Repels Water and Dries Fast to Keep You Warm

Burford, GA (October 28, 2019) – The downside of traditional down? Once the fine plumed feathers become saturated, they simultaneously grow heavy and surrender their insulating properties. (You might remember the malaise as a kid waiting in a cold rain at the bus stop. Not cool.)

Gill has remedied that age-old predicament by utilizing hydrophobic down in their reimagined Hydrophobe Down Jacket, which is available in both men’s and women’s sizes and colors.

In Gill’s hydrophobic process, natural down is specially coated to make it dry faster, repel water longer, and retain loft and warmth even when wet. The result is a garment that can fish, sail, hike and hunt longer in wet conditions. To that, if intense activity in cold weather causes you to break a sweat from the inside, the hydrophobic down maintains warmth even after you slow the pace, meaning less of that awful damp clamminess.

Gill’s Hydrophobe Down Jacket is also certified by the Responsible Down Standard (RDS). The independent and international organization aims to ensure that feathers come from animals that have not been subjected to any unnecessary harm.

Gill’s technology and penchant for detail goes beyond hydrophobic down, too. The advanced outer fabric of the Hydrophobe Down Jacket is windproof, as well as water repellent to fend of light spray. All the while, the same outer material is engineered to keep the hydrophobic down feathers inside, where they’re supposed to be – no feather stalks pushing through to the outside.

The Hydrophobe Down Jacket also features a pair of exterior hand warming pockets. And when it’s time to doff the jacket after a day on the water, the entire jacket packs into its own internal pocket for easy storage in a pack or on the boat.

Gill’s Hydrophobe Down Jacket retails for $169.00 USD. Men’s sizes range from S-3XL, and come in Black/Orange and Blue/Navy. Women’s sizes range from 4-12, and come in Navy/Orange and Orange.
