Activ-dri down is ideal for active outdoor applications – due to its great ability to reduce water absorption by up to 60% compared to un-treated down. This fluorine-free and bluesign® system partner chemistry does not add weight or odor, or have an adverse effect on fill power.
Nikwax Hydrophobic downis a water-based fluorocarbon-free branded solution that offers safe and reliable WR performance. The WR efficacy can be refreshed using Nikwax Down Wash™ and Down Proof™ for long lasting and durable WR protection. NHD treated down will stay dry longer and maintain its loft – even when wet. Recently, we also achieved 1,000+ minutes on the hydrophobic shake test using this world-class DWR chemistry, as well.

The pur-down treatment has no adverse effects on down loft or cleanliness, and is completely eco-friendly.
