Primaloft® Silver Insulation Active
The Primaloft brand has been one of the absolute leaders in technical materials since 1983, when, at the request of the US Army, they created a synthetic alternative to down. Today, this manufacturer is respected for its wide portfolio of synthetic insulations that set the standard in their category.
Primaloft® Silver Insulation Active was developed with the intention of creating a fill with premium insulating properties, but without being too fluffy, to allow athletes and active people as much freedom of movement as possible. The filling therefore contains millions of tiny air bubbles that trap body heat and thus provide thermal insulation.
Insulation made for active people
Primaloft® Silver Insulation Active was created especially with athletes in mind, who needed reliable thermal insulation for their activities in the bitter cold, but at the same time clothing that would not restrict them and would be breathable enough to wick excess moisture away from the body.
That's why Primaloft® has taken its popular Primaloft® Silver Insulation, a top-of-the-range fill, and based it on its special Active variant, geared specifically towards this target group.
The material is made up of extremely fine synthetic fibres, which take care of the thermal insulation, but also the breathability - i.e. the effective wicking of sweat and moisture. The filling is treated with a water-repellent finish, so it doesn't get wet easily, whether on the outside or inside. And if by chance, this filling does not lose its performance even after getting wet.
The Active version was designed and created with the fact that athletes and active people need the material's extra ability to wick away sweat and moisture - so this material is more efficient in this regard and lets in more air. In order not to put unnecessary strain on its wearer, it is also lighter but loses none of its durability and can still keep the wearer warm very efficiently.
At the same time, it is soft, comfortable to wear and collapsible into a minimal size.
Primaloft® has long strived to do its utmost on all fronts when it comes to the environmental impact of the processing and production of its materials.
This is also reflected specifically in Primaloft® Silver Insulation Active filler. The manufacturer declares that the material is made up of 100% recycled resources and industrial plastic waste, so resource efficiency is maximised.
