  1. Hi

    I have a North Face Nuptse gilet. Does anybody know where I can get it re-downed (is that the right word) as the back is getting a bit thin from the feathers being crushed? Or get down and do it myself?

  2. to be honest, Nuptse's aren't the best bit of kit and are mass produced in china. It may be possible to put in tumble dryer on very low heat for 40mins-1hr, this may fluff some of the down backup.

    I have a North Face, Rab and ME down jkt / gilet. The NF is the lowest qualityby far.

  4. Wash it on Hand wash, get all the water out, then tumble dry on its own with 3 tennis balls in, to "puff" it back up.
