Down - Forty years of experience of high quality down
Fjällräven worked with down as an insulation for more than 40 years and they only use down that meets the highest quality standards. This means that a Fjällräven down jacket or sleeping bag offers an unbeatable ability to insulate in relation to its low weight. You will also notice how well Fjällräven's down products can be compressed to take up minimal space in your pack. When you buy a down product, you should primarily check to make sure it has a high CUIN and a good blend of down and feathers. You can read more below about what this actually means.

Fill Power/CUIN:
High quality down products are often rated on their "fill power". Fill power is a measurement of buoyancy or "fluffiness". It measures how much of one cubic inch is taken up by one ounce (27.3 grams) of down. This is called CUIN (cubic inch per ounce) or fill power. The higher the value the better the insulation.

Mix of Down and Feathers:
Another factor that determines the features of the down jacket, sleeping bag or other garments is the blend of down and feathers. Down binds more air than feathers and also offers better insulation. The higher the percent of down, the higher the insulation properties given the same weight. A description of "90/10" means that 100 grams of padding consists of 90 grams of down.

Down's main features: Down is a natural product but it still offers the best insulation on the market. It is also extremely lightweight, and garments made from down can often be compressed to take up little space in the pack.

The down's origins:
The high-quality down that Fjällräven use in the garments and equipment comes from the food industry and is tested according to American standards. Fjällräven only use one down supplier, with whom Fjällräven have a close and active relationship throughout the production process. Fjällrävens supplier has signed the code of conduct, which for example regulates animal protection, as well as an agreement that prohibits down being plucked from living birds. Fjällräven monitor the down process regularly, through both pre-arranged and unannounced visits by Fjällräven's quality assurance team.
