Air Insulated Jacket

If you are planning to visit the cooler climes of Europe in the next few months, an ideal light weight jacket that can keep you warmer than your traditional woolens is here. NuDown, the only outerwear brand utilizing compressed air as insulation, has introduced a new line of jackets and vests for men and women.

The jackets use NuTech, NuDown’s proprietary technology, to provide warmth via a stowable pocketsize hand pump that the wearers use to adjust their level of warmth on the go. Users pump air into the dynamic chambers in the garment until it conforms snugly to the body, providing their desired level of warmth and comfort, or hit a release valve for immediate cooling.

The jackets can be used for outdoor, ski, snowboard and travel in the winter and negate the need for multiple layers of clothing for protection against the cold weather.

Moreover the jackets and vests can be stowed away easily making them are ideal for travel because they compress for easy packing and can be used in a variety of temperatures across multiple seasons.

NuTech uses natural air that is pumped into dynamic laminated air chambers within the garment. Advantages to using air is that it is environmentally friendly, maintains its thermal properties, does not lose its loft when wet, provides warmth when wet and is limitless and pure. The pump provides a 40-degree temperature variation.

NuDown jackets and vests were tested at the Institute for Environmental Research – the thermal research facility at Kansas State University, and were awarded the best Clo (Clothing Insulation Value) warmth-to-weight ratio in comparison to similar fit and function of premium down jackets and vests.

The garments feature Polartec stretch nylon outer layers, double-slider waterproof YKK zippers, PrimaLoft insulation in sleeves and hoods, critically taped seams for protection against wind and rain, RECCO reflectors and breathable, ultra-wicking liners, with a selection made from bamboo charcoal mesh for added breathability and odor control. Priced from $450 – $800, NuDown outerwear will be available at select specialty retailers and online at
