A Warm & Light Jacket
This Primaloft® Sport 100 jacket is designed for hiking and mountaineering and is as warm as a goose feather jacket.
The ONE model by CimAlp is extremely light, with durable, light Micro-RipStop outer fabric, and will protect effectively against the wind and showers. It has no membrane so is totally breathable.
The practical Primaloft jacket is so compact that it can be stored in 1 minute in the pocket inside the garment.
It should be worn as a 2nd layer, with a base layer underneath, and maybe with a totally waterproof coat on top in case of heavy rain.

PrimaLoft® Synthetic Insulation
Tested by the pros: "Now I wear only this jacket on my winter hikes and the comfort is always excellent. It is a real favourite within the team at randozone.com, both for its cut and for its effectiveness." Read article
PrimaLoft® is the warmest and lightest synthetic insulation in the world.
Primaloft® was developed by NASA for military and space use, and provides an immediate feeling of warmth, similar to goose feather padding, with the added benefit of wind protection and breathability. The thermal properties of Primaloft® do not change when in contact with moisture, unlike feather padding, which creases and sticks together, thus losing 40% of its insulation effect.
Comparison between primaloft® Sport / goose feather padding at equal insulation weight:
Conditions in dry weather: Primaloft® sport 100 = duvet power 500
Conditions in wet weather: Primaloft® will be warmer than any wet feather padding!
