With the release of our new Southern Alps Down Jacket we had to ensure it stood its ground and ticked all the boxes that one expects from a 100% recycled down-filled jacket.

In setting out to do just that, we brought in a few kiwi icons and teamed up with the Mt Cook Ski Plane & Heli family to test the product how any true local would; with a game of backyard cricket 10,000ft above sea level atop the Southern Alps Ranges themselves.
