Baffle constructed insulation.
Tindur is designed with baffled-box for added insulation.
Baffles are the pockets of space that are created between two layers of fabric which then hold the down in the jacket. These chambers filled with down are how the jacket keeps you warm. When you're wearing a down jacket, the warmth generated from your body is trapped by the down. The more loft a jacket has, the more air can be trapped and the warmer the jacket is.
These down pockets can be built mainly in two ways; 'Baffled box' or 'Stitch-through'.
The baffled-box construction is the warmer of the two, as it allows the down to loft more, i.e. trapping more air. This results in fewer cold spots in the jacket and therefore more insulation.
Making baffled-box down pockets for the down, rather than sewing through quilt style, is a lot more work and a lot more complicated to make. For this reason, the majority of down jackets are 'stitch through' and the few that feature "Baffle-box construction" are more expensive.
The technology is usually reserved for the more demanding products such as the Tindur Down Jacket, where the production of a single piece can take up to 10 hours.
Care for your Tindur and it will last a lifetime
When washing, wash separately in a washing machine at 30°C with liquid soap specifically intended for down. Make sure all the zippers and snaps are closed. Do not use fabric softener or detergents that contain bleach or stain remover. After washing, the jacket should be dried in a low setting with a tennis ball (or something that beats the down).
After about an hour in the dryer, it is recommended to turn the garment over. The total drying process can take up to approx. two to four hours, depending on the garment size.
Leifur Örn Svavarsson
On top of Everest
In 2013, Leifur Örn Svavarsson was the first Icelander to summit the north side of Mt. Everest. Leifur was equipped in 66°North clothing and among the items he wore was an extremely warm down-overall that was customized for his needs. This down overall was built on the same technology and has the same function as Tindur Down Jacket.
The name of the jacket, "Tindur" can be directly translated to peak/summit in English and is, therefore, a reference to Leifur's journey on top of Everest.
