A gear tip for a new year
When out in the hills this winter my essential bit of kit is a down jacket, I spend most of the year in jungles and deserts. So in winter I struggle!
Down is by far the warmest insulated jacket, but what about if you don’t wear down?
My girlfriend is Vegan, so doesn’t wear down jackets. So I’ve been showing her some other jackets.
PrimaLoft have come up with a brilliant new filling called THERMOPLUME! Which is basically a synthetic feather
It combines the best of both, the warmth of goose down and the water repellent of synthetic….and best of all its Vegan friendly!
MONTANE have started using it in their Icarus jacket for men and Phoenix for ladies. Both cost around £140
