Nudown, the outerwear brand for men and women, which uses compressed air as insulation is introducing an expanded fall 2016 line featuring jackets, vests and mid-layers.

“Nutech, our proprietary technology, enables outdoor enthusiasts to personalise levels of warmth on-demand with a stowable, pocket-size hand pump,” Nudown stated in a press release.

“Its enhanced air chamber design is more flexible and warmer, while upgraded fabrics reduce weight by more than 30 per cent,” it added.

In addition to using lighter fabrics, NuDown redesigned its air chambers with a new pattern resulting in greater flexibility during movement in the abdominal area, and when bending and sitting.

Additionally, the new construction increased insulation capacity in the upper torso for added warmth and has an athletic fit.

“All fall 2016 styles have a revamped pump that is smaller and ergonomic, for increasing and decreasing warmth levels,” the company added.

The new mid-layer Approach collection includes the Lake Tahoe mid-layer jacket and Echo Lake mid-layer vest for men and women featuring NuTech air chambers on the front torso, with breathable, four-way stretch Polartec Hardface fleece on the backside.

The NuDown mid-layers are three-season pieces, designed to be worn during a variety of activities including skiing, hiking, aerobics, and walking, etc.

Building on the launch of its Alpine collection of jackets and vests, Nudown will debut its Diamond Peak jacket for men and women, completely revamped from its 2015 style.

Its torso length positions it as a ski and snowboard jacket, featuring NuTech air chambers on the inside for a sleek look, seam venting for wider temperature control range.

NuDown's Alpine collection also includes the Squaw Peak jacket and Mount Whitney vest for men and women, which feature a 20 denier fabric compared to a 50 denier, reducing the weight by more than 30 per cent.

Additional features include PrimaLoft insulation in hoods and sleeves, Polartec fabrics, breathable, ultra-wicking liners, YKK waterproof zippers and RECCO reflectors.

NuDown will debut its line at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market 2016 and at the SIA Snow Show 2016.

“NuDown has proven the warmth and range of a down parka, minus the down and it's the air, not the feathers, that insulates,” said CEO Bob Hall.

“Active outdoor enthusiasts are demanding cleaner, more ethical technology to perform, or simply enjoy the great outdoors,” he too added. (AR)
