About Ballistic Airlight®
Ballistic Airlight® is made using the same nylon polymer as our Ballistic® material and a highly technical production process to create extremely fine, super thin threads. These threads are then woven into ultralight, gossamer fabrics that share the same characteristics as Ballistic®: one and a half times more abrasion resistance than other similar weight fabrics and boasts three times the tear strength of nylons that are almost 20% heavier. Additionally, Ballistic Airlight® is often woven using different techniques to create fabrics with radically different characteristics, such as fabrics that allow the garment to stretch or fabrics that "breathe" to release built up heat and moisture.
This water resistant zipper eliminates the need for storm flaps, reducing weight and making it easier to zip and unzip.
About the material: EX Down
World class, high quality down Montbell's premium down comes from water fowl that live in regions with seasonal temperature extremes. The down balls from birds in such regions are characteristically much larger. Large down balls hold more warm air, which translates to needing less down to provide exceptional warmth retention.
Lightweight yet warm When compared by weight to lower quality down, an equal amount of premium down is loftier and has better warmth retaining properties.
Sewn through construction
In sewn-through construction, stitch lines go from the exterior of the garment directly to the lining material to join the two layers, creating small pockets for down insulation. This simple method provides an economical way to keep down in place, while leaving the garment as light as possible.
Maintenance of Down Leakage Warning
In the event that small feather spines or down clusters work their way through the fabric it is best to reach behind the fabric and pull the offending down cluster BACK INTO its down chamber. Gentle massage of the area will promote "self sealing" and re-align the fabric threads, while better distributing the down insulation. If at all possible avoid attempting to pull the cluster from the bag or garment. Doing so can cause the exposed cluster to tangle with others and draw them from the chamber.
