A U.S. Special Operations group reached out to Stone Glacier in regards to testing the performance of our technical apparel pieces by performing a stagnant rewarming drill. Specifically, this Special Ops group wanted to test our down apparel and sleeping bags’ ability to move moisture away from the body and maintain insulating capabilities in extreme conditions. The goal was to collect data points for future product considerations and to compare treated down to synthetic insulation alternatives. This test is typically performed with synthetic insulation, and the effects of such conditions on down insulation are unknown. Following the test we spoke with the Special Operations instructor who deemed the test a success as his teams gear was able to move moisture and dry out in cold, stagnant conditions.
