An icon of Performance Luxury, this
jacket lives in the space between essential high alpine gear and next-gen elevated design.
Surprisingly lightweight with high mobility for an expedition-level down jacket, the Bering Down Jacket continues to be the flagbearer for Beringia’s mindful yet uncompromising ethos regarding insulation.
The Bering down collection lives in the space between essential alpine gear and next-gen elevated design.
The 2023 Beringia Down collection has been upgraded with LA-based Allied Feather & Down's 850 fill HyperDRY, the highest-performing water-resistant, PFC free down insulation in the world. HyperDRY is considered the premium sustainable, hydrophobic natural down material available today that resists clumping or packing in wet conditions. Setting the highest bar for technical all-weather performance in three essential styles for Men and Women.
The compound in the HyperDRY treatment works the same way as traditional DWR chemicals by building carbon-hydrogen chains on the down cluster to decrease the surface tension, which ultimately causes water to bead and roll off.
The difference is that the HyperDRY compound is completely PFC Free, meaning it is not flourinated. The flourination of previously used treatments is what gave those chemicals an extremely long half-life, making them almost impossible to break down and allowing them to wreak havoc on the waterways and ecosystem we rely on.
ALLIED worked closely with their chemical partners and were able to develop a hydrophobic treatment that could not only provide performance without fluorocarbons, but also allow us to process material more sustainably.
