The care label on my down vest says to refer to your website for restoring the DWR finish and caring for down garments after washing - I can't find anything at all on your website - what is the answer please

Asked by: Gill L
If you pop into our Help Centre, you will find all the information you need from washing a down jacket to re-water proofing your rain jacket. Under Product Information there is a 'product care' category, this is where you can find all the links to videos and articles about looking after your gear. I hope this helps!

Does this fit the same size as the Epiq Women's 600 Fill Hooded Down Jacket. I have size 8 in that jacket which fits me well. As this is a thin jacket would you recommend size 6 or the same size for me?

Asked by: Jaya123
I would stick to the size 8 if this fits you well. The thickness of a jacket is taken into account when these are designed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm to wear Already worn this even though it’s summer, on those cool mornings walking the dogs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fit Very happy with this vest. It is useful and so light. It fits into a bag easily

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Puffa Vest Bought a few weeks ago and very pleased with it. Does what it’s supposed to do - keep the chill away from the upper body. Handy having the hood and the hidden zip in the right side pocket which enables the vest to be turned inside out, stuffed into the casing, zipped up into a portable wee item to carry!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving it! Given money for my birthday and Kathmandu also gifted me a $20 off. Perfect timing as this was on special. Ended up, never paid extra. Good birthday gift! Loving the light weight and keeps me warm especially on my back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Less bulky than other vests and packs away so smal I bought this recently and am very impressed with it. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super lightweight and warm - very happy! very happy with this purchase, great for those spring days when it is a little cooler lightweight, not heavy or thick yet warm Colour combination works well

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality I brought this as a gift for my mother. She loves it. She likes it because it's not puffy like some of the other vests out there, but nice thin built. However, I personally like it because Kathmandu is a great brand and I have seen alot of them around.
