Prometheus Design Werx introduces their latest state-of-the-art, down-filled, hooded jacket, the STRATUS, for Fall-Winter 2021.
The Stratus features a unique stitch-less baffle construction to reduce weight and bulk, a stretch 20D shell, premium hydrophobic 800 fill power goose down, and packs down small for trail to travel. The Dupont treated, water repellent, premium 800 fill power goose down is also 27X more water resistant than untreated down, so this hoodie retains its thermal properties even if dunked or wet.
Design details include an integrated stuff-sack for storage, or use as a camp pillow or ravel neck pillow. The jacket also features 4 pockets, an internally routed bottom cinch, a cozy brushed hood liner, and a 20D nylon shell with stretch, DWR and Dupont Silvadur anti-microbial treatment. All of these features deliver a jacket with an excellent warmth to weight ratio – but for for added practicality, it is also cut to fit under outerwear.
The Design and R&D Team at PDW also added:
“The Stratus Down Hoodie is best in class. We sourced and used the best in this goose down mid-layer as a follow up to our hooded Tycho model from 2019. We custom milled this unique stretch nylon with stitch-less baffles for our shell, making this jacket one of the few on the market that possess these performance characteristics for unparalleled comfort, movement and reduction in bulk in any down garment. There is nothing lighter, warmer and more compressible than a down mid-layer. Down mid-layers allow the user to be unencumbered by excess weight; when not being used, they pack down smaller than any other technical mid-layer and can be easily stowed in a pack. While down jackets were never intended to be used as rain wear, the Stratus will allow the user ample time to shrug off the first minutes of rainfall to grab a waterproof shell to wear over and not lose its insulating capabilities. It’s the quality of make and design details that makes our goose down mid-layer a cut above the rest.”
The Stratus Down Hoodie is a part of Prometheus Design Werx’s PRO-Line of technical apparel and is available now in Mission Gray, and Outpost Blue for $289.00. Visit prometheusdesignwerx.com for full details.
