Your legs carry you from one adventure to the next, so make sure they get the warmth they need with our ultralight down pants. Premium 850-fill goose down provides insulation without bogging you down, while a DWR finish sloughs water when you’re wearing them around camp and in the snow. Cinch top waist, with shock cord and cord lock, allows you to tighten or loosen them as necessary. Elastic ankle cuffs help protect your legs from drafts.
At Goosefeet Gear, we know that “one size” doesn’t “fit all,” especially when it comes to pants. That’s why our down pants are highly customizable. In addition to fabric, color, fill and exact body measurements, you can choose to have partial to full side zippers, and whether or not you want your pants baffled.
BAFFLED VS SEWN THROUGH
The most common method of construction is known as “sewn through,” where the outer material is stitched directly into the inner lining, separating the down in different pockets and keeping it from settling or bunching. “Sewn through” uses less fabric, making it the lightest option. Sewn-through construction it is less warm than baffled construction because the down is pinched at the seams, meaning loft is reduced to zero at each point of stitching, creating potential “cold spots.”
“Baffled” construction means that there have been thin strips of material sewn between the top and the bottom layer of fabric, giving each separate pocket of down its own three-dimensional cube. This creates much less pinching of the down at the perimeter, maximizing the loft of the down, and minimizing cold spots. Baffled construction is the best method for optimizing the loft and warmth of the down fill. Due to the use of extra material, baffled construction makes the pants slightly heavier in overall weight. We recommend at least 5 . 5 OZ of fill be used with the “Baffled” option.
