PrimaLoft will release a new insulation “PrimaLoft® Black Insulation ThermoPlume®” It is comparable to down in insulation and feel, but synthetic. Personally I have started to like synthetic insulation more and more. Both for the sake of the birds and the increasing performance of synthetic insulation.
“With its good insulation performance, its hydrophobic properties, the look and feel, and easy processing, PrimaLoft® Black Insulation ThermoPlume® is being implemented by manufacturers in very versatile ways. For example, in midlayers for alpine adventures, in warming jackets for light hikes, and in warming all-weather jackets for everyday life in the city.”
