Rukka down liners

The Rukka Nivala jacket and trousers come with a duck down liner jacket and trousers.
You can now buy them as stand alone items to wear under any jacket trouser combination as mid layers and they are extremely warm .
The down side (pun intended) is the cost .
The top is 189 and the legins 129 .
However very similar products (90% duck down 10% feather) are available in the sales at the moment .
I have just bought a top from Debenhams for 27 in there 70% off sale .
Having worn it I can say it works as well as my Rukka down jacket .
Companies such as Graghopper ,Jack wolfskin and.many others sell duck down tops .
There are also down like tops which also work well .

Re: Rukka down liners

Using down for insulation can work well but it inevitably looses its insulative quality over time due to shifting and bunching. And after washing its virtually impossible to get the down completely redistributed. Then there is the problems of lost insulation quality and of drying it out once it gets wet. On a road trip that can be a problem. IMHO, synthetics are the way to go. Helly Hansen, or another quality brand, expedition weight long underway is far superior to down. Again, just my opinion.
