Developed in partnership with PrimaLoft™, Thermoball™ is a revolution in insulation technology. Unlike traditional continuous filament synthetic insulations, the small, round PrimaLoft™ synthetic fiber clusters closely mimic down clusters, trapping heat within small air pockets to retain warmth. Independent testing by Kansas State University 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.
Durable water repellent (DWR) finishes on fabrics and zippers give them increased water resistant qualities and significantly extend the life of waterproof and waterproof breathable technologies. The addition of an enhanced hydrophobic treatment enables DWR to adhere to material for an extremely extended lifetime.
