Snowbee Nivalis Down Gilet - 

Award winning Nivalis range from Snowbee is further expanded with the addition of a Gilet. Offering all the features of the original Nivalis, but in a sleeveless, body-warmer style to provide warmth coupled with freedom of movement.

Snowbee Nivalis Down Gilet, for many years, mountaineers & polar explorers, have relied on the unparalleled lightweight insulation properties of natural feather down, to keep them warm, in extreme conditions the challenge however, is that down loses most of its thermal properties, as soon as it gets wet. Many manufacturers have tried to avoid this by either treating the outer shell with a DWR finish (Durable Water Repellent), or using feather down, with a hydrophobic treatment to repel water and prevent clumping. Both methods are good, but have their limitations, so Snowbee thought…why not put the down in totally waterproof pockets, to protect it? Problem solved!

Snowbee new high-tech Nivalis Down Gilet features a totally unique construction technique – an internal & external 3-layer laminated fabric, using hidden, internal stitching, to form the down pockets. The benefit is no external stitch-line, allowing water to penetrate. The Gilets down pockets are formed, using 2 layers of double-knitted Tricot and then protected, inside and out, with a TPU waterproof membrane (
TPU Film is Major Break through of Waterproof and Breathable Fabric Composition - Thermoplastic polyurethane), so the down remains 100% dry. The outer shell, is a woven micro-fibre polyester fabric, with DWR treatment, so rain-drops ‘bead-up’ & run off the surface. Inside, there is a super-light woven polyester lining, with peach-skin finish, for comfort.

The natural down filling in the Snowbee Nivalis Down Gilet contains 90% duck-down, 10% feathers and uses a fill power of 700 for total warmth, while the waterproof membrane has a hydrostatic pressure resistance (Waterproofness) of 5000mm, to keep you dry and also provides total wind resistance.
Both the main front zip & the two side hand-warmer pockets use waterproof zips. Inside the Snowbee Nivalis Down Gilet, there are two deep pouch pockets at the bottom, for mobiles, wallets etc. And finally you will find 2 internal bottom hem adjusters, with ‘toggle-loks’.
