Down coats are one of the best wardrobe investments a man can make. While the process of acquiring down feathers hasn’t been the most environmentally friendly in the past—to say the least—companies have since stepped up to make sure there are best practices in place.
You can check to see if any down-filled product has been appropriately sourced by looking for a certification from the Responsible Down Standard (RDS). The RDS verifies down and feathers do not come from animals that have been subjected to any unnecessary harm. The organization also educates suppliers and rewards the down and feather industry for best practices that respect humane treatment of ducks and geese.
New Proof Down Collection
The latest down collection released by Proof uses 80g fill down certified by the RDS. This insulation guarantees the wearer supreme warmth while staying breathable and lightweight.
All of the outerwear uses a strong blend of nylon and spandex for the shell. The fabric contains 4-way stretch for ease of movement in all 360 degrees, as well as a DWR coating to wick away moisture.
