  • seems to need a team of experts to get it right and even then there will be others who disagree Local people using traditional skills It s not as cheap or as efficient as large scale production in the Far East or Eastern Europe But we feel there s a value in preserving and using the very real skill base which still remains in UK So like many people we rely on common sense based on goodwill what might be called ethics to give some valuation to what we are doing We make everything start to finish in our own factory in UK Local people using traditional skills It s not as cheap or as efficient as large scale production in the Far East or Eastern Europe But we feel there s a value in preserving and using the very real skill base which still remains in UK and we re happy to be part of it We source as much of our materials and components as possible in Europe more than 95 by bulk currently and transport the minimum across the globe Nearly all our products are filled with down down is a renewable resource it is a by product of the food industry in fact a waste product if not used for insulation it provides very long lasting performance great value over time We have handled an 80 year old sleeping bag in excellent condition When ultimately discarded down is biodegradable like wood the highest qualities of down as used by PHD come from the oldest free range birds We know exactly where our down comes from we visit the producer and none is plucked from live birds it is also generally accepted as better for the environment if we all wear warm clothes and turn down the

  • resources But the advantage of being small is that it allows a closer more direct scrutiny of our flow of materials Taking down as an example we are buying in kilos not tons and we are testing a meaningful percentage of what we use We bought our Lorch fillpower testing machine within months of start up and it has been providing us with our own data ever since Along with down samples we have kept for years we have a long term accurate record of the down quality we have used and are using now Week in week out we monitor and establish the quality of our down ourselves regardless of the figures quoted by our suppliers from their own laboratories With other materials testing is a two part process One part is to verify the performance figures we get from the supplier Fabrics go for laboratory tests to confirm the main points or to fill in any gaps Waterproof fabrics and sealing tape we can check on our own equipment For other items such as waterproof zips we have our own in house methods unorthodox but effective The other and more valuable part is simply to make samples and use them preferably in conditions beyond what they were designed for Tough on the testers but good practice Testing a PHD sleeping bag at 51 C in Antartica There s nothing revolutionary about testing materials all manufacturers do it But large scale production of cars compost or down jackets brings its own problems Tests take time so it is only possible for big manufacturers to test a fraction of their large usage themselves Even independent laboratories can do no better So the responsibility is passed back to the suppliers and sometimes back to their suppliers and so on In the
