PUMP IT UP

Every NuDown garment features our proprietary NuTech technology, giving you the power to create and adjust your ideal temperature no matter what the conditions. 20 pumps give you an initial blast of insulation that will suffice for normal activity on slightly chilly days. 30 pumps will do likewise in harsher cold. And 40+ pumps will protect you in the cruelest of colds, like when you’re on the lift waiting to take that extra end-of-day run.

RECCO®

RECCO® technology makes you searchable to professional rescuers in the event of an avalanche accident. The technology enables rapid directional pinpointing of a victim’s precise location using harmonic radar. The two-part technology consists of a RECCO® detector used by 700+ rescue organizations worldwide, and RECCO® reflectors that are integrated into apparel, helmets, protection gear, and boots. The reflector is permanently affixed, requires no training for use and needs no batteries to function.

RECCO® technology is not intended for companion rescue nor is it an alternative to transceiver use in the backcountry. Complementary in function to the transceiver, RECCO® technology is an additional tool that does not interfere with other search methods such as transceiver searches, avalanche dogs, or probe lines. The RECCO® technology facilitates a faster search by professional rescuers and provides skiers and snowboarders with one more chance to be found in time.

POLARTEC® NEOSHELL®

The Nudown Mount Tallac Jacket uses the latest  innovation in weather protection fabrics, Polartec® NeoShell®. Polartec®  NeoShell® is the first fabric to combine the superior breathability, ventilation, and stretch of a soft shell with the waterproof performance of a hard shell, delivering the best of both worlds. Combining protection from wet weather and unprecedented breathability through dynamic air exchange, Polartec® NeoShell® dramatically improves the environment inside the garment. Athletes will be drier inside in a wider range of weather conditions and exertion levels than ever before. Polartec® NeoShell®. Dry inside and out. Join the revolution.

PRIMALOFT® GOLD

One of the highest performing insulation on the market for warmth, water resistance, softness and compressibility. PrimaLoft® GOLD an ultra-fine microfiber insulation that is as warm, soft and lightweight, and is warmer wet or dry than all other insulations. Ultra-fine fibers form tiny air pockets that trap body heat and keep the cold out. The result is immediate warmth without the bulk. PrimaLoft® GOLD Microfibers are engineered for permanent water resistance and create tight surface tension that resists moisture penetration, resulting in an insulation that dries faster than goose down. Ultra-fine fibers mimic the compressibility of goose down and are breathable, allowing moisture vapor to be transported through the fibers and away from the skin.

  1. Rated 4 out of 5

    Absolutely love my NuDown vest and how versatile it is! It’s very lightweight and adding/removing air makes an amazing amount of difference in how warm it is. Not pumped up, the vest is light enough to wear even when I’m active. But in the snow or at night, I can pump it up and stay warm. I’m generally cold, so it’s really amazing how warm I can stay with something that weighs so little. Thanks!

  2. Rated 4 out of 5

    Upon first glance, the quality of the material is excellent. the craftsmanship is comparable to other top brands in extreme weather gear. This the reason for the 4 star rating. However, “the fit” holds only a One Star because the sizing is way off; the product states Medium is 38″-40″, but the Medium actually measures a whopping 48″ which is the sizing for their XL a Major Labeling mishap? Not sure how that worked out during the manufacturing process so I called the company. They are working on the sizing issue, and suggested ordering the Mens Small or possibly trying the Women’s Medium as the cut is the same but sizing is inaccurate. I opted for the Mens Small and turned out great; actual measurement of the Mens small is 42″. Because the technology evolves inflation the vest does shrink the inner measurement for a snugger fit, I assume they tried to figure in the maximum inflation inner measurement. that seeming to be the case has made the vest oversized for the labeled size which means its too loose of a fit and greatly reduced insulation. My first warmth test came today 5:30am breezy 48° F in Angeles Cest mountains, I put the vest on when I arrived and pumped it up; at first not impressed until about 15-20min later. It became very warm, so warm I had to deflate the vest a bit. It seems it’s best to put the vest on a pump it up prior to exposing to the elements to get the heat going and deflate if necessary. in all, it is a very fine product, if your cold it won’t warm you as quickly as a traditional quality down however once it does start to heat up it’s right on par with a quality down with the exception that you can Regulate the thermal response with the NuDown. Also once you are able to figure out which size actually fits you, you can enjoy the benefits.
