Filled with PrimaLoft’s highest performing Gold Active ECO filament fibres, it is also very breathable. This makes it the perfect insulation garment for demanding activities in cold conditions.
Why we made it
- Breathable insulation for demanding activities.
- Lightweight, wind resistant, water resistant and very packable.
- 60g PrimaLoft® Gold Active ECO is recyclable and contains 55% recycled materials.
The revised and upgraded Primaloft Vest is a lightweight synthetic alternative to our down layers. The main differences being that while down undeniably has higher insulation capabilities, synthetic fibres are stretchable, compressible and breathable, allowing the moisture vapor to pass through the fibres.
We also use a more breathable shell fabric, which makes these garments perfect for strenuous and demanding activities in alpine conditions, such as ski touring, skiing and climbing. The outer fabric is semi-glossy and glides perfectly in your layering system, for improved freedom of movement.
It is water resistant, wind resistant, compressible and very packable. The insulation will keep its insulation capabilities even when wet. Designed to be worn under a shell jacket, or as a stand-alone outer layer.
PrimaLoft® Gold Active ECO insulation is arguably the finest synthetic material on the market, with an excellent warmth-to-weight ratio, trapping heat even when wet. It is lightweight, warm, compressible and soft.
Striving to do better for the environment, this newly developed insulation now contains 55% recycled materials.
The outer fabric is a very lightweight 12 denier DWR-treated Japanese nylon ripstop that is wind and water resistant.
It has one chest pocket, two hand pockets, interior storm flap, elasticized cuffs and a drawcord hem.
Athletic fit and is designed to go under a shell jacket. If you plan to use it as a stand-alone, consider going up one size.
