.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.

Made in Japan.

850 Fill Power Down

This ethically sourced premium down is great for providing warmth in sleeping bags, hoods and socks.


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


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.

Perfect for quilt sleeping

Couldn’t be happier with this down hood. Perfect for quilt users, doesn’t slide around or off your head at night like a beanie can on straight, slick hair. Much better than the hood on a sleeping bag, which can slide into your face when you turn, and of course can’t be detached for use as a separate warm hood. The ultra light weight is remarkable. It’s very warm and has a cozy fit and feel.
