Winter is definitely here, pre-Christmas fever has already begun and we at Yatzer want to take care of our readers, keeping them stylishly warm. And since we are no good at keeping secrets, it’s about we shared our latest discovery with you: Nordkapp Centogrammi.

Nordkapp Centogrammi is a new Italian brand that specializes in white goose down jackets. What makes them unique it the fact that they apply the latest technology and hand made techniques in order to define lightness, softness and ultimate comfort. Their secret is the use of the 90% down + 10% feather Japanese standard that has a series of important advantages since it combines the elasticity of the feather and the lightness of the down/flake (its weight can be ten times lower than the one of a small feather).

The highest filling power flakes of the jacket offer a great padding quality and guarantee its lightness since fewer flakes are needed to get the same “heat comfort”. We must say here that each Centogrammi Nordkapp Ultralight is made using direct injection of the feathers, which is done through a completely handmade process that keeps unchanged the exact ratio of weight/heat.  Furthermore, the transpirable fabric used for the padding coverage prevents the loss of feathers and the penetration of dust. The result is a the ultimate heat insulating jacket, so resistant, flexible and lightweight that can stand up to 80K times its weight, returning quickly to its original size! Forming an ultralight second skin, it’s the best choice companion for the heavy cold days.

Nordkapp Centogrammi, staying faithful to its ultralight concept, has created a BLOG that represents the philosophy of the brand, aiming to build a whole community of design addicts and "ultralight" life lovers. The ultralight concept allows many interpretations, from a carefree way of living till an ecological approach to our everyday reality, thus it can be easily associated to sports, music, art or travelling.

In order to celebrate the birth of their blog, Nordkapp Centogrammi had the very interesting idea to invite some renowned guest bloggers to define their ultralight point of view (that, as you can check, goes from Kevin Cyr’s Camper bike to the famous Ice bar in Stockholm). Furthermore, they are about to start a marvelous “WHAT IS LIVING ULTRALIGHT?" competition that is open to all of you that are not afraid of using your imagination.

And as Christmas is near, some very special “ultralight” prices are waiting for those that will enter their on-line store on time. Let’s admit it, what more could you probably ask for this winter?
