About Marmot Down
From the beginning, down has been Marmot’s foremost insulator. Down is the light, fluffy undercoating at the base of the feathers of waterfowl. Down's multi-dimensional structure insulates by creating pockets of still air that retain body heat while remaining highly breathable and comfortable. Pound for pound, high quality down is the most efficient natural insulator there is. No synthetic surpasses the lightweight, compact-ability, and longevity of down.
Marmot Down Quality:
Higher fill power means higher loft, better insulation, lighter weight, and greater durability. Marmot tests all of their down for content, cleanliness, species, and fill power and guarantees minimum fill power for all of their down clothing and sleeping bags.
Geese are raised primarily for food and the down that is derived from them is a by-product of the food industry. Geese are raised on large and small farms and roam free outside on these farms. This is their natural environment. They are not raised indoors in controlled conditions. Geese are grain fed and also have access to local plant life.
Geese are generally harvested after 4 to 9 months for food. Some female geese are kept for breeding stock and are harvested between 1 to 2 years. These are the geese called the “mother birds” that provide the best, most mature down. After the geese have been harvested for food, the down and feathers are removed, washed, dried and then sorted by separating the down and small feathers from the larger, heavier feathers. These processing methods determine the final quality and fill power of the down. Marmot currently buys down primarily from Russia, Poland, and China.
