PrimaLoft® Kodenshi Insulation
PrimaLoft® is a hydrophobic, synthetic down fibre that, unlike natural down, resists water absorption. It was originally developed by the U.S. Army's R&D team, who were tasked to create an alternative to down that could withstand exposure to moisture yet still be highly warm, breathable, and compressible. Today, PrimaLoft® is considered the industry best in synthetic insulation - "warm when wet".
