Down jackets, whose outer material was so thin that the down inside even shone through, were above all ultra-light, breathable and fashionable. But certainly not waterproof. That has now changed, because with the new Sol Jacket, Nordisk has succeeded in producing a down jacket that combines ultralight weight with a high water column and extreme breathability.
This was made possible by using the innovative NorTech 0.5 membrane, which is 10 times thinner than a human hair. It also weighs less than 20 percent of the current market standard for lightweight membranes.
Nordisk developed the ultra-thin 10-denier fabric ten years ago in collaboration with Japanese fabric manufacturer Toray Industries. Together they have now found a way to make this fabric even waterproof by developing the thin membrane. The filling is made of 'Crystal Down'. This pure goose down comes from Europe and guarantees a high animal welfare standard.
Thus, the jacket has a water column of 20,000 WP, a water vapor permeability of 40,000 MP and comes to a weight of only 300 grams.
Thanks to this groundbreaking technology, the jacket survives even heavy rain showers. It is durable and lightweight and can be used for a wide range of outdoor activities and in changeable weather. Thanks to the clean look, it fits perfectly in all environments.
A red Y on the chest stands for the well-known Yeti down quality. Nordisk acquired the down specialist Yeti in 2005 and therefore calls the down collection Y by Nordisk.
The jacket was designed for men, it comes in yellow and blue. It was launched in November 2022.
