Frequently Asked Questions
Where does your down come from?
How do you trace your down?
Before the down “traceability” topic became a popular conversation in the outdoor market, Downlite had already embraced rigorous supply chain custody procedures, documentation, and lot tracking systems. We take supply chain transparency very seriously, and require our raw material suppliers to do the same. Working in partnership with global brands and retailers, Downlite has led the efforts in the contribution, education, and co-development of multiple traceability standards. Learn more about 3rd party certified traceable down. We also have our Down-Trac program where you can trace key facts about your down on our website.
