Primaloft specializes in creating high quality synthetic insulation layers that insulate when wet.?
Products made with Primaloft insulation are warm, lightweight, packable, and breathable. This makes Primaloft materials a great fit for high output activities where you are working hard in cold weather - or if you are in an environment where moisture management is important.
We use Primaloft Gold to create our Ascent Hoodie. Primaloft Gold is a Bluesign certified fabric that has a clo value of 0.92, making its insulation comparable to a 550 fill down product. It retains 98% of it’s insulating capacity while wet, making it an excellent choice for humid and rainy climates. It is also hypoallergenic, making it a great alternative for people that are sensitive to down.
We also use Primaloft Gold in specific high-moisture areas of our Altocumulous Down Jacket. This helps to take advantage of the breathability and moisture management qualities of Primaloft insulation while still capitalizing on the warmth to weight ratio of down.
