The NovaUL uses our innovative Nova Zero Stitch Fabric, which is neither bonded nor stitched, but woven into place.
The D-tube design of the NovaUL is optimized to be more durable, water & wind resistant, and ultralight.
You can't snag a stitch that isn't there!
Water & Wind Resistant
Nova Zero Stitch Fabric is incredibly water & wind resistant. It makes sense when you realize that without all those extra needle holes, it's a lot harder for water, grime, or wind to enter your jacket.
As a bonus, it's also a lot harder for your DownLT insulation to escape!
New DownLT Insulation
No more worries about moisture... ever.
The Nova Jacket line utilizes our brand new DownLT™ insulation, which combines mostly 850 Fill Power HyperDry down with a small percentage of synthetic LoftTek. DownLT™ insulation is much more stable than typical down, and will stay lofted even when soaked (in the small chance that moisture even gets through the Nova Zero Stitch Fabric!)
These new innovations give you a warmer, more reliable jacket that you can take on any adventure without worrying about it wetting out or not performing the way you need it to.
We've tested various types to insulation to see how much loft they retain when put through a full wash cycle. The graphic below shows these different types of insulations often found in puffy jackets, and how DownLT™ compares. These results speak volumes about how effective DownLT is at managing moisture well!
