QUID PRO QUO
However, hydrophobic down has some cons that are often ignored by other manufacturers. In order to impregnate down and make it hydrophobic, it is first necessary to degrease it completely, thus depriving it of what provides its fill power under normal conditions. The compounds that are used help the down to regain its fill power, but this is not permanent . The life of hydrophobic down is about 6 cycles. It is still a lot, especially when compared with most synthetics, but natural down provides even more. You also have to take into account that it will decompress slower. These are the reasons why we did not introduce this type of filling into our offer until now. When developing our offer with hydrophobic down, we wanted everyone to be aware of its pros and cons.
