In deep winter, down jackets are the first choice for going out, no matter in the relatively warm south or the freezing north. As the styles of down jackets gradually become fashionable, the demand for down jackets in the market is also increasing year by year. Garment factories that produce high-quality down jackets have also begun to have corresponding indicators for the procurement of down raw materials. The indicators involve the purity, bulkiness, and presence or absence of peculiar smell of down jackets. So how to identify whether these down materials are good or bad? Down manufacturer Down teaches you to identify down raw materials.

1. White duck down and gray duck down

This is a more important indicator than the down content. Down jackets with high bulkiness not only have good thermal performance, but also are light and close-fitting, and can incorporate more design elements.
