Providing wind protection and allowing excess moisture to escape while preventing unwanted moisture from coming back in.
A revolutionary new synthetic utilized by The North Face, Climashield Neo is the first-ever commercially available, dual-density fill. That means it utilizes two deniers of fiber in one continuous filament. Larger fibers maintain loft and compaction resiliency, while the smaller fibers have a softer feel and the best heat-trapping characteristics.
Neo`s resiliency sets a new benchmark for the outdoor industry. One test consisted of completely compressing the Neo fill in a lab through 100,000 cycles. In the end, it regained 78 percent of original loft, substantially more than any previous synthetic fill used by The North Face.
Tests show that Neo also outperforms other synthetic fills in moisture categories. Each fiber is coated with a heat-activated finish that is exceptionally water repellent. Is indicated by a low evaporative resistance rating, Neo filament is less inclined to absorb water and actually facilitates vapor transportation away from the sleeper and out through the shell fabric.
Meeting the performance needs of all types of outdoor enthusiasts, The North Face offers the highest quality goose down for optimal performance and warmth. Their down is rigorously cleaned and tested to ensure that only the best down is used. By using a naturally high lofting, light and resilient insulator down items are lightweight, highly compressible and incredibly warm.
