The easy-to-layer Baby Down Sweater wraps them in soft warmth yet blocks wind and resists water when conditions get dicey. Lightweight and highly compressible, this baby down jacket is filled with Traceable Down (600-fill-power duck down sourced from U.S. ducks that are traced from parent farm to apparel factory to help ensure the birds that supply it are not force-fed or live-plucked, as certified by NSF, an independent third party). The ultralightweight 100% polyester shell has a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. The full-length zipper has a zipper garage to protect tender chins; elastic in the back hem secures the fit and shuns chilly weather. Hand-me-down ID label.
