the Condor ZEPHYR Lightweight Down Jacket (101057): There are advantages
to a genuine down jacket over a synthetic and Condor developed the Zephyr with
these in mind. The two biggest advantages are down’s greater warmth ratio for
its weight and its superior ability to compress. The average synthetic jacket
will have lost much of its warming ability over 5-7 years, compared with your
average down jacket that can retain warmth for 10-20 years. Down is also more
resilient. After being compressed for a long period, it regains its shape more
quickly then synthetic. Other advantages include down’s longer lasting
qualities and the superior breathability of the feathers compared to that of synthetic
insulation. Like all down jackets there will be a minor loss of feathers over time.
