Nikwax has been well known in the last 2 years or so for making very good 
environmentally freindly waterproofing stuff.  I just used the stuff for 
fleece on my fuzzies and it really is amazing - I held my sleeve under 
the faucet and the water just ran right off of it.

Anyway, they also make a "down-proof" I think.  It washes into the bag 
and coats the feathers so they don't absorb as much water.  Availible
