The Prois Callaid Vest is the ultimate layering piece that provides superior and lightweight insulation. The ripstop exterior keeps tears from forming and spreading and the cire’ finish on the backside of the fabric keeps the down from migrating. The ripstop fabric is also treated with DWR for added water resistance. The 800 fill power Gray Goose down is also treated for superior water resistance and at 180gsm our grey goose down has excellent loft. While many companies have switched to using duck down because of more availability and a lower price point, goose down is the finest natural insulator available. To get down with a high fill power (roughly 750 and up) requires a higher percentage of large plumules, the wispy spherical structures of down that provide exceptional loft and warmth. Geese, being larger than ducks, are the only birds that produce sufficiently large plumules for high-end down. Because of the high quality of down used, this vest is both light weight and incredibly warm. This vest features a spacious chest pocket, and roomy zippered front hand pockets. We firmly believe women need just as much storage for their gear! Zipper garage protects neck and chin from chaffing. This beautifully and technically constructed vest is the perfect layering piece for any adventure. Prois believes Mother Nature got it right with down and the Callaid Vest is a must-have core insulation piece! The Callaid Vest can be worn alone of layered with our Callaid and/or Torai Jacket. We highly recommend pairing this vest with our Ollan Merino 1/2 Zip and/or our Tintri Half Zip.
