I looked into this after it came up on Reddit, I also found one other company using it for non-technical apparel:
Like most new things, durability is the question. How long before the down detaches and clumps at the bottom of the very widely spaced quilting? If it can outlast higher-end synthetics it may have a place.
I can’t imagine this competes with normal down on packability or efficiency, but for thinner applications I can see it being preferable to the very narrow quilting on many light down garments. I sold my thinner down jackets after getting tired of cold spots and down migration.Sep 25, 2017 at 12:10 pm #3493108

- How does repeated stuffing into stuff sacks affect the distribution of the down?
- Will the down have a DWR treatment ? (My E.B. First Ascent does vest has down DWR and I needed it last week at 8,000+ ft. in Nevada’s Mt.Moriah area with heavy fog and wet snow. No loss of loft.)
- And yes, how’s the breathability of this “down sandwich” ?
