Haglöfs chooses Nikwax Hydrophobic Down+

Progressive, outdoor brand Haglöfs have partnered up with Nikwax to use their Hydrophobic Down+ in all of their down products. NHD+ is an evolution of Nikwax Hydrophobic Down that remains water repellent over 10x longer that normal down. It features a flexible Durable Water Repellent (DWR) finish on each individual down filament which means that even after SEVEN days of constant exposure to water, it still retains all of its natural structure and maintains insulation. Which obviously increases the range and extremity of conditions that down items can be used in, and means that whether camping at altitude, alpine trekking or mountaineering, NHD+ will keep the user warmer and drier, whatever the conditions. Which is why those super advanced Swedes at Haglöfs have decided to use it in all their down kit:

“Haglöfs is focused on high performance, and driven by sustainability, like Nikwax. When we heard about Nikwax Hydrophobic Down+ with the improved shake time of 10,000 minutes – it felt like a natural choice for us. We know the performance of NHD+ will mean a lot to our customers, who can now stay out for even longer. To work with a company that is also driven by sustainability is a perfect match for Haglöfs”. – Jenny Spiik, Textile Designer from Haglöfs
