For hiking along the Sleeping Bear Dunes’ coastline at first light, or covert toilet-papering missions at midnight, the windproof and water-resistant Down Sweater keeps her warm in a super lightweight, highly compressible jacket. A generous stuffing of 600-fill-power premium European goose down resides within the 1.4-oz 20-denier polyester mini-ripstop shell fabric that’s treated with a Deluge® DWR (durable water repellent) finish. Side panels and princess seams in the front and back create a feminine shape. Two handwarmers secure with zippers and reflective pulls; the front zip has a wind flap and a zipper garage to protect cold chins; and a drawcord at the hem adjusts the fit. With a hand-me-down ID label.
Patagonia’s proprietary durable water repellent fabric finish, Deluge DWR, lasts substantially longer than standard DWRs. Garments with the Deluge DWR finish have like-new repellency after years of extensive use.
