DOWN SHORTS WITH FULL SIDE ZIPPERS

DOWN SHORTS - keep warm what is sensitive, easy to put on and off on the move, over base layer or under the shell pants;

FOR WHOM: initially developed for bicycle riders (cold wind was so easily crawling even under long jacket when biking in November), but than I found so many more uses for the down shorts: mountaineering/hiking (autumn/winter), iceskating, running (winter), I haven't tried yet but it feels that it would work for skiing too (alpine, cross-country);

 

FEATURES - zippers on both sides allow shorts to be put on and off quickly without need to pass legs from the opening, it is especially handy if you are wearing skates/crampons/ski boots. As well zipper can be opened  from bottom up for ventilation, when it gets a bit too warm, but not hot enough to take the shorts off.

One hidden feature that can't be easily demonstrated on photos is the crotch panel. It is not filled with down as the rest of the shorts, but instead it is insulated with the Climashield Apex 2.5 oz. synthetic material. Why? Because during walking the inner tighs are in constant motion close to each other and down naturally migrates out of that area from the pressure and movement, so the crotch area looses the insulation, however the strategically placed panel with synthetic insulation solves that issue and keeps you uniformly protected.

Waist elastic cinch cord allows to adjust the fit as well as pull shorts down without opening side zipper, which is very convenient when you wear it over base layer or pants with elasticized waist, because you can pull your pants down together with shorts, without fiddling with any buckles or zippers.
Leg cinch allows to comfortably tighten the leg opening to prevent any drafts from entering (tested: without leg cinch it was noticeably colder when ice skating or biking, because during this kind of activities the thigh position is closer to horizontal and apparent wind is always present, resulting in wind entering through led opening).

Lastly, down shorts in combination with core warmer is a lightweight protection kit for any kind of activity in colder times of the year. And it looks so cute!)

 

MATERIALS - main fabric: downproof nylon; fasteners: #3 zipper;

 

INSULATION CHOICE:

1. 700 FP recycled down

2. 850 FP down

 

Note 1: FP stands for Fill Power, value 700 or 850 represents how many cubic inches an ounce of down will occupy at its maximum loft. In short: higher the FP - lower the weight of down needed.

Note 2: Recycled down comes from Re:Down, they recover filling from used bedding products and sleeping bags and rigorously clean and sort it. Thanks to Re:Down support of my small scale manufacturing for providing me with lower than their usual MOQ quantities, so that I can offer this truly sustainable option to you.

Note 3: Recycled down is not all white, it has som egrey down as well, this could be visible in the final product if fabric color is not completely opaque (Blaze Orange - slightly not opaque, Hot Pink - 50% opaque). If you carefully look at the pictures of orange Neck Warmer you can spot darker spots.
