Kryptek Defender

September 2018

Our new Ares jacket, Cirius jacket, and Cirius vest all come with our new water-resistant down technology called "Kryptek Defender." It comes in three cold weather pieces and is an absolutely amazing piece of technology that we are really excited about. The color options are HIGHLANDER and TYPHON.

Kryptek Defender is additional protection for your down gear. It offers an extra level of moisture protection for down garments exposed to wet environments. Kryptek Defender helps prevent down from clumping and losing its loft when exposed to rain and snow, therby maximizing its ability to keep you warm and comfortable.

The treatment puts a hydrophobic layer on each individual cluster. This treatment is done during the down cleaning process. The finish is extremely durable, allowing the down to maintain its water repellancy for the life of the garment. The treatment also enhances the down's integrity and the durability of the cluster, helping to increase its longevity.

MSRP: Starting at $259.99
