.59 oz/sqyd Ventum Ripstop Nylon

This super light, high quality, 7 denier fabric showcases a ciré finish on both sides and weighs in at just .59 oz/sqyd (20 g/m²).  Featuring a high quality "C6" durable water repellent (DWR), this ripstop and tear resistant material can also handle a light mist (but is not waterproof).

Ventum nylon cuts the wind while still allowing for excellent vapor transfer the makes the fabric highly breathable.  With a soft texture, Ventum is not sticky or plasticky like some other fabrics in this weight range.

As the material is down and mosquito proof, it is an excellent choice for wind shell clothing and sleeping bag shells.

Storage

Store loose (hanging in a closet for example) when not in use. 

Washing

Goose Hoods do not need to be washed very often. Wash once after a long season or only as needed.

Be careful of machine washing down Goose Hoods. The twisting motion of a washing machine could potentially tear the shell or the internal baffles. If you do try a washing machine do so at your own risk using the delicate setting.

We recommend hand washing your Goose Hood in a sink or bathtub with warm water and Granger's Down wash. Swish the socks around for a few minutes and rinse.

Squish the socks and squeeze as much water as you can out of it.

For best results, lay the socks out in the sun to dry. You may have to periodically pull apart any wet down clumps to allow them to dry completely and fluff back up like new.

High heat from a clothes dryer can melt delicate shell materials. We recommend drying your down gear items in the sun, or line drying indoors if the weather doesn't permit sun drying.

Goose hood

The goose hood has been great for cold nights sleeping in a quilt. Stays centered on your face and much more comfortable then sleeping with a beanie with a buff.
