A word about goose or duck down.
In addition to fur, many people are concerned about how goose and duck down is obtained. If you are concerned about the welfare of animals, PrimaLoft is a great synthetic microfibre insulator. It was originally developed for the US Army as a water resistant down alternative.
Today, Primaloft is the premier supplier of insulation to the US Army, Marines and Special Forces. When it comes to thermal efficiency, Primaloft is a competitive alternative, especially given that down performs poorly as an insulator as soon as it becomes wet, and also has a slow drying rate. Primaloft retains 96% of it’s insulating ability when wet.
