THE MOST REVOLUTIONARY IDEAS ARE OFTEN THE MOST SIMPLE
Such is the case with Nudown. By utilizing an infinitely available natural resource that just so happens to be one of the most-efficient, heat-retaining substances known to science, NuDown has not only risen above the controversies of traditional down, they’ve made personalized, fully-adjustable warmth a game-changing reality.
THE SECRET IS AIR
With NuDown's signature NuTech technology, you simply squeeze a convenient, in-pocket pump, forcing air into the chambers surrounding your torso. The more air you pump in, the more air you trap between yourself and the garment. This “inner” air is warmed by your body and held tight to produce your ideal warmth. As conditions change, you can release air to cool down or add more air for even greater insulation.
Gone are needless layers, bothersome bulk, and the outdated techniques of traditional down. In their place, an innovative new era of thermal efficiency and personalized temperature control.

Pump it Up
Every NuDown garment features NuDown's proprietary NuTech technology, giving you the power to create and adjust your ideal temperature no matter what the conditions. 20 pumps give you an initial blast of insulation that will suffice for normal activity on slightly chilly days. 30 pumps will do likewise in harsher cold. And 40+ pumps will protect you in the cruelest of colds, like when you’re on the lift waiting to take that extra end-of-day run.
RECCO® technology makes you searchable to professional rescuers in the event of an avalanche accident. The technology enables rapid directional pinpointing of a victim’s precise location using harmonic radar. The two-part technology consists of a RECCO® detector used by 700+ rescue organizations worldwide, and RECCO® reflectors that are integrated into apparel, helmets, protection gear, and boots. The reflector is permanently affixed, requires no training for use and needs no batteries to function.
RECCO® technology is not intended for companion rescue nor is it an alternative to transceiver use in the backcountry. Complementary in function to the transceiver, RECCO® technology is an additional tool that does not interfere with other search methods such as transceiver searches, avalanche dogs, or probe lines. The RECCO® technology facilitates a faster search by professional rescuers and provides skiers and snowboarders with one more chance to be found in time.
The Nudown Mount Tallac Jacket uses the latest innovation in weather protection fabrics, Polartec® NeoShell®. Polartec® NeoShell® is the first fabric to combine the superior breathability, ventilation, and stretch of a soft shell with the waterproof performance of a hard shell, delivering the best of both worlds. Combining protection from wet weather and unprecedented breathability through dynamic air exchange, Polartec® NeoShell® dramatically improves the environment inside the garment. Athletes will be drier inside in a wider range of weather conditions and exertion levels than ever before. Polartec® NeoShell®. Dry inside and out. Join the revolution.
One of the highest performing insulation on the market for warmth, water resistance, softness and compressibility. PrimaLoft® GOLD an ultra-fine microfiber insulation that is as warm, soft and lightweight, and is warmer wet or dry than all other insulations. Ultra-fine fibers form tiny air pockets that trap body heat and keep the cold out. The result is immediate warmth without the bulk. PrimaLoft® GOLD Microfibers are engineered for permanent water resistance and create tight surface tension that resists moisture penetration, resulting in an insulation that dries faster than goose down. Ultra-fine fibers mimic the compressibility of goose down and are breathable, allowing moisture vapor to be transported through the fibers and away from the skin.
