Despite having existed for a relatively short period of time, Prometheus Design Werx has grown into one of the most trusted names in the tactical gear and garment space, combing technical designs with premium materials and construction techniques. And PDW’s latest adventure and travel-ready offering is the Kepler Down Jacket.
The jacket is produced using stitched baffle construction around a 20D mini-ripstop nylon shell that’s stuffed with an RDS-certified 800 fill power goose down insulation treated with an antimicrobial, and stain and water-resistant DuPont DWR-finish that allows it to stay dry for 27 times longer than untreated goose down. Referred to as a “Cardigan” by its manufacturer, the Kepler also gets a brushed poly tricot-lined collar, YKK reverse-coo zippers throughout, custom nylon hardware and trim elements, and six pockets (with a media wire pass-through port). The jacket’s most notable feature is its ability to stow away into its own integrated stuff-sack, which can be converted into a camp pillow or a travel neck pillow—an idea conjured up by former Navy SEAL Kyle DeFoor. Available now in OD green and gray, the Prometheus Design Werx Kepler Down Jacket is priced at $229.
