Redefine how you layer this Winter. The Zanter Japan N1 Down Jacket is a truly faithful recreation of the classic US Navy N1 Deck Jacket, which packs incredible warmth and durability. Given their rich history spanning over 60 years, Zanter's experience speaks for itself when we dig deep into the details of their product.
The predecessor of Zanter; Toyo Feather Enterprises began experimenting with various specially constructed winter garments that contained down during the early 1950s. While many designs were lost along the way, the original set of blueprints for the N1 Jacket from that era were thankfully retained, allowing Zanter to unleash their technical prowess and create a masterpiece that pays homage to their heritage.
Zanter is heralded as the first brand to produce Down wear in Japan. The first pieces were worn in 1956 by members of the Manaslu Expedition Corps as well as the Antarctic Observation Corps. Zanter has continued to produce the highest quality Japanese Down wear by selecting only the finest materials and using well-honed production methods.
Locally sourced high-quality down feathers are extremely difficult to come by, at the most only 10g can be found on the chest area of a suitable Waterfowl. The quality of feathers is also greatly affected by breeding method, environment and feed during infancy. These carefully selected feathers then go through a thorough process of washing, drying, dehydration, sterilization and dust removal which results in Down that not only has excellent heat retention properties, but is also durable and sanitary.
