Down jackets wrap you in soft warmth, insulating your core from freezing temperatures and wind. They are highly compressible, extremely lightweight for their warmth, and ultra-comfortable for all day use.

How do I fix a crease on the collar?

The collar of my Nano Puff has creased, bending inward to my neck. How can I undo this crease so that it fits more comfortably?

If ironing a synthetic jacket like this Nano, it important to use a piece of cotton fabric (clean pillow case) as a press cloth between the iron and the jacket so that you don’t melt the jacket shell fabric or the insulation inside. You can also buy silicone paper to prevent scorching or demarcation.

You could try snipping off an appropriate length of say a zip-strip, opening that seam with a thread ripper, poke a couple holes it it so you can put a stitch or five to keep it where you need it and then sew it shut. If you don't want to rip the seam you might get a away with poking a stiff wire (coathanger perhaps) in there and injecting an appropriate adhesive (maybe contact or rubber cement...). The first option strikes me as much better, though. I don't think a collar stay would be long or stiff enough to fix it. Probably need to do both sides because stiffening that side will probably cause the other side to do it instead.

Hey Mark, I own a nano puff too and mine has the same issue. I believe the other answers will help with wrinkles, but the crease in question is more than that. The zipper is stiffer than the collar, so the zipper stands upward and the collar bends to meet it instead of holding a crisp point. I have found that folding down the collar avoids the issue, but have found nothing that remedies it. I hope that input from someone who actually owns a NP and also deals with this issue may be more helpful than someone who assumes the issue is due to an adept domestic skillset. Thank you for the question.

(p.s. I have wondered about collar stays but am understandably hesitant about modifying my jacket to accommodate them)
