Engineered Down Jacket
The SYNC Performance Engineered Down Jacket is a stitchless down jacket using a weave fabric with tubes as opposed to the traditional approach of stitching two pieces of fabric together. By doing this, we are able to create a down jacket that has superior stretch properties enabling increased mobility for the athlete.
The Engineered Down Jacket uses water repellent 750 down fill, with a 90/10 down to feather ratio. We stuff this inside the woven tubes made of a 4-Way stretch hybrid material and free from wind, this down gets to shine. We then add taped YKK AquaGuard Zippers that keep the wind out and skier specific features, like a removable, helmet-compatible adjustable hood, google wipes, pockets where you need them, and waist adjustments.
The jacket, free from stitching, is the most durable insulated jacket we've ever made. Prior to this approach, we would use stitching which pops, rips, and tears and inevitably lets wind, water while the down simultaneously starts to leak out.
Improved Outer Shell
We've used matte-style durable stretch weave with a Durable Waterproof Coating that gives the jacket a 90/10 rating meaning that 90% of the fabric is free from the water after being sprayed and it will withstand that performance after 10 washing machine cycles.
