Well the first day of reckoning has arrived… 900 fill power down is no longer available from the largest down importer in the USA. From alternative sources the cost of 900 fill power down is nearly double the recent cost of 800 fill power down… Arguably the value of extreme fill power down’s minor weight reduction is seriously diminished as that would cause a major price increase to customers or a severe, unsustainable margin reduction of 900 products. Neither of these alternatives is acceptable. Thus, Jacks ‘R’ Better is returning to our previous position that 800 fill power down is a super product that represents the ”best value approach” for both the customer and the market.
When the late spring imports of down begin arriving in the USA we will reevaluate the sustainable availability and cost of extreme fill power down.
