DOWNTEK WATER REPELLENT DOWN
DownTek-treated down absorbs less water than untreated down. This means it retains its loft better in damp or humid conditions, dries quicker, and recovers better too, keeping you warmer in damp environments than untreated down. DownTek is environmentally safe - Bluesign approved, PFC, PFOA, and PFOS free – and uses only RDS certified down sources. Remember, it's better not to get your down wet – even water repellent down is no substitute for a waterproof shell!
RESPONSIBLE DOWN STANDARD
We use only RDS certified down; all our down is audited by a third party to ensure that it comes from birds who are not live-plucked, force-fed, or mistreated. That’s good to know.

Great jacket, great value
I wore the jacket in the mountains for the first time last week in Glenelg climbing Beinn Sgritheall. A bitting cold gale was kept at bay by this jacket. I really like the long back keeping the small of your back protected. Yes bulky in your pack but it is a down jacket after all.
Had this jacket for over a year and overall I'm very happy with it, it's very warm and cozy. When I take it backpacking I normally compress it in a sleeping bag stuff sack. While it's much larger than other jackets like Filoment, it still packs decently small. Great value!
Nice Warm Jacket, shame about the drafty zip
On balance this seems like a really nice, warm and well made jacket; it's going to save me carrying lots of weight in order to keep warm on winter expeditions. My only complaint is that I've just been out walking in windy weather and the air gets in through the zip quite easily (and around the neck - though this is easily remedied with a scarf!) which is unfortunate given how warm it is otherwise.
Warm, nice cut and colour, very high quality
The Filo is a very warm down jacket, the cut allows good movement without compromising the fitted look. The blue colour is nicer in the flesh than the web pics (perhaps slightly teal) and the fabric has a quality feel and matt appearance. Fabric and stitching at least match my Rab jacket for quality. Only missing a stuff pocket, which would earn it a 5th star from me. I wonder if this is a deliberate omission due to the risk of damage caused by clumsy users? You can of course roll it in to the hood,though this is a little bulkier than ideal. I've tried packing it in to it's own pocket, it's possible but a little too tight and there's no double zip to hold it shut.
