The Fabric of Comfort: Exploring the High-Quality Materials in Our Northern Sun Products

by Jason Crowley 20 Feb 2024

As adventurers at heart and innovators in outdoor apparel, we at Northern Sun take pride in crafting products that not only withstand the elements but also offer unmatched comfort and durability. Our careful selection of materials and attention to detail in every design ensures that each piece of clothing not only meets but exceeds your expectations.

Materials at the Core of Northern Sun Products:

1. 100% Polyester with ECO DWR Finish: Our men’s 3-in-1 Systems Winter Jacket and Parka are perfect examples of how we integrate functionality with environmental responsibility. The 100% polyester shell features an ECO DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish, offering excellent waterproof and breathable protection (10K/10K) that keeps you dry and comfortable in any weather. The fully taped seams enhance this protection, making the garments fully waterproof.

2. High-Quality Fleece and Down Insulation: Versatility is key in outdoor apparel, and our 3-in-1 designs feature removable fleece liners made from 280g anti-pill, two-sided brushed fleece. These liners offer additional warmth and comfort and can be worn separately or zipped into the shell for maximum insulation. For those colder days, our Down Parka and Lightweight Down Jackets are filled with 90% white duck down and 10% feathers, providing a high 700 fill power for exceptional warmth without the bulk.

3. Advanced Fabrics for Specialized Needs: Our Lightweight Down Jackets utilize 400T high-density 100% nylon WR Cire, a fabric known for its water-resistant properties and durability. This material ensures that even our lightest jackets can stand up to wet conditions without compromising on warmth.

4. Thoughtful Features for Maximum Functionality: Each Northern Sun product is designed with the user in mind. Features such as adjustable hoods, hem drawcords, and hook and loop adjustable cuffs allow for a customized and secure fit. Storage is also a priority, with strategically placed pockets that offer easy access and protection for your essentials, from zippered hand pockets to secure inner pockets.

5. Durability and Design: Durability is a cornerstone of our design philosophy. The use of high-density polyester pongee and nylon WR Cire linings in our down jackets ensures long-lasting wear and resistance to tearing. The attention to detail is visible in our quilted stitching, rubber debossed logos, and welded peak caps that not only add style but enhance the garment's functionality and longevity.
