Features of good down trousers

Wearing down trousers as an insulating layer has many advantages: not only are they lightweight, but they also have a small pack size, so you're guaranteed to have enough space in your backpack. Plus, down offers a great balance between “too warm” and “too cold”, which isn’t usually the case with fleece trousers or lined winter trousers.

This ensures the down maintains its fill power and its insulating potential. By following these tips, you’ll be able to go on many adventures with your down trousers and down jacket.
