An evolution in the making
The Incinerator Duvet was a vital piece of kit for Leo Houlding during the Asgard Project, and led to the development of the Magma Down.
"The Incinerator Duvet was crucial, to the extent that we wouldn't have got up the wall without it…"
Leo Houlding 2009
We knew the jacket performed well but with feedback from Leo and the rest of the Asgard Project team we identified some key aspects that could be improved, which led to the Magma Down:
- Add technology features to the product – improve the hood, cuff closures
- Make the product tougher
- Reduce some of the bulk without reducing the warmth
- Make the product longer to protect all vital areas
Breath easy insulation
Big Down Jackets suffer from moisture build up at the 'Dew Point'. Body heat is trapped then meets cold air and condensation occurs at the 'Dew Point'. This is often on the inside face of the outer fabric, allowing any insulation to get damp.
The Magma Jacket uses a layer of Primaloft One next to the shell layer. If the dew point forms at the face fabric the Primaloft® One manages the moisture without significantly losing any insulative properties, but still protects the Down insulation.
Going from strength to strength
Our in house lab tested the construction and materials of the Magma Down Jacket thoroughly to ensure it was fit for purpose and met all the criteria of The Brief.
Once prototypes were made the Berghaus Test Team headed to the mountains and hills to put the product through its paces and it didn't let them down.
The Magma Jacket has expanded on the strengths of the Incinerator Duvet by offering a more durable duvet jacket that offers great protection along with improved warmth in conditions where moisture is present either from the environment – snow, melt water or through the formation of Dew Point.
