I just uploaded 3 new videos where we cut open a baffle on a brand new Sierra Designs Gnar jacket and test their DriDown against untreated down.
Video #1: Steam Chamber Test
Video #2: Recovery Test
Video #3: Agitation In Direct Contact With Water Test
We were unable to see any significant advantage of DriDown vs. untreated down. We are finding this all very interesting.
I have a couple more ideas for tests, but welcome any ideas any members of BPL have. We will attempt to reach out to Sierra Designs again to see what they think, and we are attempting to get products to test from the other producers of hydrophobic down.
I am traveling over the next 5 days, but will check in periodically.
