Ventura, Calif.-based outdoor apparel retailer Patagonia Inc. has introduced the Encapsil™ Down Belay Parka, a 100-percent independently baffled and differentially cut parka insulated using the company’s plasma-treated, water-repellent, 1000-fill-power Encapsil down.

Patagonia’s patented Encapsil technology utilizes a silicone-based, fluorocarbon-free chemistry. The down is processed using a proprietary machine and agitated with low-level radio frequency waves that shift the surface of its molecular structure, and then is coated with a small amount of siloxane that permanently adheres to its altered structure. The process creates a 25-percent stronger, loftier and more hydrophobic down than conventional down products, according to Patagonia.
