Light, Warm Down Vest Made with Special Sewing Method & High-quality Down Released under "Munsingwear" Brand
Descente Ltd. has put on sale a lighter and warmer down vest, "Dual Air Down," as a new product under the "Munsingwear" brand. A special sewing method, which prevents down from coming out of fabric, is employed and high-quality down is used to reduce the amount of fabric in the vest, allowing it to be lighter and warmer than ordinary down vests.
Renowned Japanese actor Takuya Kimura, who serves as "ambassador" for the Munsingwear brand, also wears Duel Air Down, and photos of Kimura wearing Dual Air Down are on display at shops dealing in Munsingwear goods.
Dual Air Down has a dual structure consisting only of outer and lining materials. This was made possible by using high-density fabric that never allows down to come out of the fabric and employing a special sewing method to prevent down from coming out through pinholes. As a result, Descente succeeded in decreasing the amount of fabric in the down-packed part of the vest, thereby reducing its weight.
KWD WORLD PREMIUM, high-quality down produced by feather material manufacturer Kawada Feather Co., Ltd. that has a 130-year history, is used for Dual Air Down. By using Kawada Feather's 900-fill power down, which can swell even in a small amount and which contains a large amount of air, Descente has succeeded in producing such a light and warm down vest.
Dual Air Down products in various colors for both men and women are on sale at all Munsingwear shops in China as well as in Japan. Customers can wear light and flexible Dual Air Down vests at a wide diversity of scenes, ranging from daily lives to sports.
