PrimaLoft is a patented ultrafine microfiber blend that is incredibly soft, lightweight and water repellent. PrimaLoft synthetic insulation absorbs three times less water, is 15% warmer when dry, and is 24% warmer when wet than the closest competitive insulation. In addition to these impressive thermal properties, PrimaLoft is lightweight with a down like softness that adds comfort and appeal.
Developed in partnership with PrimaLoft, Thermoball is a revolution in insulation technology. Unlike traditional continuous filament synthetic insulations, the small, round PrimaLoft synthtic fiber clusters closely mimic down clusters, trapping heat within small air pockets to retain warmth. Independent Clo testing by Kansas State Univeristy has shown that ThermoBall has warmth equivalent to 600 fill goose down. As a result, ThermoBall can offer the light weight, loft, warmth and compressibility of down with the wet-weather insulating performance of synthetics.
All issues of the actual order / shipping process were spot on but, candidly, the color of the jacket in the photo is not representative of the exact color of the actual jacket, which is lighter.
Love this jacket! Light enough for cool nights and warm enough for sub-freezing activity.
