A synthetic thermal fabric is the best choice for all those who want to be active outdoors in cold, wet weather conditions. Developed in the early 1980s by the US military as artificial down and now sold under the name of Primaloft, outdoor clothing now wouldn’t be the same without this material. The innovative thermal fabric is made from super-fine fibres that store body warmth in the best-possible way. If you compare a cotton fabric to a silk fabric, silk feels considerably softer. Primaloft fibres are manufactured in a way that results in particularly fine fibres to imitate the softness of real down feathers. The thermal material is breathable, so perspiration is also actively guided away from the skin. The synthetic fibre filling is water-resistant and therefore also retains its thermal properties when wet. These synthetic down feathers also dry particularly fast. Designed as a replacement for duck down feathers, Primaloft products are also as light as a feather and have an equally high compressibility factor. Jackets and sleeping bags insulated with Primaloft are particularly compressible and can be stored away in the smallest of spaces, if necessary. They ensure that outdoor fans stay dry, warm and comfortable even in the most extreme conditions.
Primaloft is an animal friendly alternative to natural down feathers. The eco-version is manufactured primarily from recycled materials, which makes this a particularly environmentally-compatible and sustainable insulating material. The bluesign® label also guarantees that the products have been manufactured in an environmentally friendly, zero emission way. These days, Primaloft is available in a range of different qualities; each of these meets different specific demands. Here an overview of this innovative insulation material so you can decide for yourself which characteristics are the ones you need.
