Using Primaloft’s premium Gold product for warmth without weight, ensuring complete protection and comfort.
Primaloft are market-leading experts in performance insulation. Engineered to be highly performing, Primaloft insulation keeps you warmer, softer and drier – boasting accelerated dry times, enhanced breathability and a superior hand-feel and softness – and unlike Down insulation, Primaloft retains its ability to keep you warm even when wet.
Primaloft insulation features the smallest fibres in the industry – less than one denier.
Smaller fibres trap greater quantities of air, resulting in superior thermal performance and a softer feel, just like real goose down. Tiny fibres create a very tight surface tension that causes water molecules to bead up on the surface of the insulation. Primaloft® fibres also compress significantly more than other insulations.
Primaloft fibres are permanently coated with a treatment which dramatically reduces the amount of moisture the fibres can absorb, while making them water-repellent. The fibres absorb approximately 100-250% weight in water, while typical polyester insulations gain from 400-1000% their weight in water.
When fibres absorb moisture they conduct heat away from the body much faster than dry fibres. Because Primaloft fibres absorb a reduced weight of water Primaloft insulation maintains the highest percentage of warmth when wet over other insulations.
