Tip & How-To about Clothing
A down jacket is a warm jacket that is filled with the soft feathers of a duck or goose, and the outer layer is usually made of materials like nylon or polyester. Down, the soft feathers mentioned, are usually taken from the ******* and wings of the duck or goose. Down is the material which provides the insulation that makes down jackets so warm, as they retain heat inside the jacket. Generally, the more fluffy the down is inside the jacket, the more air gets trapped inside the jacket, and the higher the ability of the jacket to keep out the cold. However, today, most down jackets are not made of pure down, and are often mixed with other materials, such as feathers.

You should remember that the materials that life jackets are made out of are synthetic and nylon and can be harmed over time by sun radiation. So you must keep them in the shadow, and even better in a room or a garage. Also you should keep them in a dry place since water can also damage your life jackets over time.
