S.J.WI just fail to see how we still need to use animals for their fur anymore. Primaloft thermoball is just as good and just as compactable as goose down and pretty much every synethetic is just as good as animal wool and fur.
But I'm glad to see Patagonia taking full responsbility.
PoLaRpEaKWhy not use something renewable and natural, that we've been cultivating for thousands of years rather than some petroleum products?
S.J.WWell for insulation, primaloft has met the blue sign criteria. If you don't know what the blue sign is it's pretty much maximin productivity and enviromentally friendly. So there is zero reason to use goose down. Thermoball by primaloft is just as good and is more enviromentally friendly than goose down, without the animal cruelty part.
mike759Cant they just shave it without mutilating the animal?
