Nikwax Hydrophobic Down – the world’s best performing hydrophobic down – Chosen By NOMAD®

NOMAD chooses Nikwax Hydrophobic Down for its iconic yellow sleeping bags, taking performance to a new level in extreme cold and wet conditions

New for Autumn/Winter
NOMAD have launched a range of new high performance sleeping bags for Autumn/Winter 20-21 filled with Nikwax Hydrophobic Down+ (NHD+). This is the beginning of a new brand partnership with NOMAD, who plan to expand the use of NHD+ in their range of sleeping bags for 2021. Products featuring NHD+ will be appearing on NOMAD’s new look website and in their upcoming ‘I am NOMAD’ campaign. 

The world’s best performing hydrophobic down
Nikwax Hydrophobic Down+ is prepared using a high performance, completely PFC-free Nikwax  treatment process. It is up to 250 times more water resistant than standard down, conserving its natural insulating qualities even when wet.

Nikwax has taken nature’s best insulator and made it even better. NOMAD have chosen NHD+ as it is the best performing hydrophobic down available. NHD+ is the first and only hydrophobic down to exceed 10,000 minutes on the industry IDFB 18A Shake Test, keeping its loft and maintaining its insulation properties after 7 days constant exposure to water. NHD+ is PFC-free and is only used in conjunction with Responsible Down Standard (RDS) and Traceable Down Standard (TDS) certified down.

NHD+ keeps users warm, dry and comfortable in a wider range of conditions. It will not wet out from rain, snow and condensation produced whilst exercising or camping. NHD+ also keeps users warmer and drier in extreme cold, making it perfect for use whilst alpine trekking and mountaineering.

Tim Pickering, Head of Product Development at Nikwax says, “We’re proud to be partnering with NOMAD, a brand with a really rich heritage of innovation in down sleeping bags. The addition of Nikwax Hydrophobic Down+ to NOMAD’s range will enable adventurers to stay warmer and drier for even longer.”

NOMAD choose NHD+
NOMAD, have partnered with Nikwax and will now be using NHD+ in their down gear – proudly using the world’s best performing hydrophobic down to fill their Orion 900, 1200 and Gemini 750 and 1100 sleeping bags.  

“NOMAD is proud to be taking another step forward in the process of creating innovative and sustainable products by working with Nikwax Hydrophobic Down+.”
