Down vests or puffer vests are a 'must have' for New Zealand winters and without the arms, they're great for autumn and spring too. Good down jackets are never cheap so when you buy one you want it to last. This is why we thought that we should take on the challenge to make a tougher down vest for those working and playing hard in the outdoors. And we did - super tough vests that stand up to gorse, firewood stacking, brushing past old farm gear and the likes.
In true NZ made style, we're always looking for ways to make our gear even better and our 2020 design tweaks do just that. Strengthened in all the places we do repairs and taking on board customer feedback, the latest evolution of the Cactus Down Vest features a grunty two way zipper, extra strengthening around pockets, a removable hood, a few more 'Michelin man' rolls, improved water repelling super powers rolls and so much more.
