Our latest innovation, the Super Down Pro Hooded Jacket is now in stock and ready to ship. With double the 850+FP QuixDown of our Super Down ULTRA, the Super Down Pro provides unparalleled warmth while maintaining durability. At just 13.4 ounces, the Super Down Pro is true to KUIU’s commitment to be ultralight.
Sourcing the best possible materials for KUIU is what sets us apart. Because of our consumer direct business model, we are able to provide our customers with the highest quality, most cutting-edge products available on the market. The down the we use for our Super Down products is a prime example of this. We exclusively use 850+FP Polish goose down, processed by Kawada Feather in Japan. Mr. Toshikatsu Kawada is the leading expert on down selection and production. He collaborated with Toray to create QuixDown, a hydrophobic down insulation that KUIU uses in our Super Down line. Two years ago, I had the pleasure to meet with Mr. Kawada personally and tour his factory, and the equipment and processes he has developed are incredible. I am fortunate to work with such a knowledgeable innovator.
Mr. Kawada graciously allowed us to film inside his factory and to interview him. His story is impressive, and I am happy to be able to share it with you in our short documentary, “The Feather Architect.”
