minimal bulk, maximum warmth
Perfection is a big word to throw around, but sometimes it’s merited. We returned to our signature Insulated Shirt again this season, and after several iterations over the last few winters, we’re hard pressed to find any room for improvement—which is a good problem to have. One modification we made was reducing the fabric weight by a few grams. It’s a minor detail, but when something is so close to its perfect form, it’s all about the fine margins. Minimal bulk, maximum warmth. The insulated shirt you love, only lighter.
Primaloft is a patented synthetic microfiber insulation, originally developed for the US army as a water-resistant alternative to goose down. The ultra-fine fibers of Primaloft form air pockets that trap heat from your body, keep the cold air out, and provide an excellent warmth-to-weight ratio. If insulation gets wet it loses these air pockets and so the ability to insulate, but the Primaloft fibers undergo a waterproof treatment so they retain their insulating properties even when wet. We use Primaloft Gold in our garments, the highest standard of all synthetic insulations.
