NanoSphere is a water resistant coating like DWR which protects your kit from water and dirt. NanoSphere uses technology borrowed from a leaf whose finely-structured surface repels water and dirt by making it harder to establish proper surface tension. The NanoSphere stops water from soaking into the outer layer of waterproof fabrics meaning they remain breathable and light in even in heavy rain.
Primaloft Gold is a high quality synthetic alternative to traditional down insulation. It’s structure creates millions of pockets of air trapped between it’s fibers which heat up and insulate you from the cold outside. The synthetic fibres have been engineered to be water repellent, meaning that even when wet they retain their loft and they they dry quickly. Primaloft is also hyperallergenic. It is slightly heavier and bulkier than the equivalent amount of down however due to it’s properties this compromise is worth it, especiallly if it’s likely that your insulating layer will get wet.
Pertex Quantum is a very lightweight water resistant fabric usually used to reduce wait while providing weather protection for down and Primaloft products. Quantum is at the top end of Petex’s range of fabric and combines durability and weather protection with an incredibly light weight of less than 35g/m2. It is also super soft which improves both comfort and packability.
