Product Overview

INCREDIBLY LIGHTWEIGHT, PACKABLE, AND WARM

The Super Down ULTRA vest weighs a mere 4.8 oz. It's built for the hunter looking for unbelievable warmth-to-weight ratio. It's designed with a mid-layer fit, making it an ideal insulating layer—or as a standalone vest when brush-busting durability isn’t required. It's insulated with 1.3 oz of 850+FP TORAY Quixdown, making it KUIU’s lightest vest.

Our Super Down products outperform the competition. We start with the best Polish goose down, which is cleaned, refined and processed by Kawada Feather in Meiwa, Japan. Their proprietary techniques perfect the down to a remarkable 850+ fill power and 95:5 down to feather ratio. Once cleaned, we treat the down with TORAY’s DWR, so each individual cluster is impervious to water; keeping its insulating loft even when wet.

The outer ultralight 12D nylon Stunner Stretch fabric is wind-proof and comfortable. It's heat-treated to keep the down from migrating through the fabric, eliminating the need for noisy down-proof coatings. The fabric is also treated with TORAY K-DWR to repel light rain and snow.

The positioning of the front pockets is above the belt line, offering accessibility while wearing a pack. The vest compresses and self-stows inside the left zippered pocket for compact storage. It’s so lightweight, you won’t regret having it in your pack.

Technology

Quixdown® by Toray

Waterproof Warmth 

Down has the highest warmth-to-weight ratio of any insulation material. The only drawback is that once wet, down stops being effective. Not anymore. Through nanotechnology, Toray Industries has created a water repellent finish for down feathers that makes each down cluster essentially waterproof. Quixdown® stays dry to keep you warmer with less weight and bulk.

K DWR® (KUIU Durable Water Resistant)

K-DWR is the first line of defense for keeping you dry. It keeps water from penetrating the outer-layer fabric, which promotes breathability and performance.
