Incredibly compressible, warm, and water-resistant
KUIU fills their Super Down garments with Toray’s revolutionary Quixdown™. Until now, the only drawback to down was that once wet, down stops being effective and takes very long to dry. Through nanotechnology, Toray has created Quixdown™, a water repellent finish for down feathers that makes each down cluster essentially waterproof. Down has the highest warmth to weight ratio of any insulation material and KUIU uses premium sourced European goose down with an IDFL Certified 850+ fill power and a 95/5 down-to-feather ratio.
The Super Down Pant features Toray's Stunner Stretch fabric, a new technology that is down-proof, stretches as you move and puts a layer of comfort between you and the warm softness of KUIU's premium Polish down. For added protection from the elements, the fabric is treated at the individual fiber level with Toray's industry leading Kudos DWR.
Super Down compresses to roughly one-third the size of comparably rated synthetics so you can always carry it with you - a lighter, warmer, more weather-resistant alternative choice to synthetics.

Toray’s Kudos® XR DWR
Kudos® XR DWR (Durable Water-Repellent)
Kudos XR DWR performs better and lasts significantly longer than conventional DWR. DWR is critical for waterproof breathable face fabric. If DWR fails the face fabric “wets out” causing condensation build up on the inside of the garment.
