DESCENTE ALLTERRAIN and BYBORRE present the Mizusawa Down Jacket

THE MIZUSAWA DOWN JACKET

This signature jacket, who’s name comes from DESCENTE’s apparel factory, located in the Japanese town formerly known as Mizusawa, was first designed for the 2010 Japanese Olympic team. Now one of their leading styles, the Mizusawa jacket seemed like the perfect garment to introduce the exciting partnership between BYBORRE and DESCENTE ALLTERRAIN.

The On-Pattern 3D™ textile lines the inside of the jacket and was designed to create optimal airflow when worn. The three-dimensionality is a result of how and where the front and back layers attach in combination with the polyester fill yarn. For this liner, blisters have been designed for specific spots throughout the jacket patterns, corresponding to points on the wearer’s back that release the most heat. This specifically designed airflow creates space between the jacket liner and the layer underneath; trapping heat where needed and providing optimal air circulation at targeted spots within the jacket.

 It was crucial that the material used in the liner enhanced this already high performing garment which leads to BYBORRE's choice to use Meryl® Nylon. Meryl® is an industry leading nylon supplier who pushes the boundaries for performance, functionality and sustainability. The Meryl® Hydrogen yarns used in the liner fabric give exceptional breathability, elasticity and soft feel.

This BYBORRE INSIDE textile exemplifies DESCENTE ALLTERAIN's high performing Mizusawa jacket through technical materials, radiant colors and functionality through knit design.
