A few weeks ago, I threw a lightweight hoodie over a synthetic T-shirt and started hiking up a mountain near my home in Bozeman, Montana. Temperatures were in the mid-forties when I set out, and a passing thunderstorm dropped them to the mid-thirties by the time I returned. The storm brought high winds and a brief but intense rain shower. Other than pulling up the hood to keep off the rain, I made no adjustments to my clothing system whatsoever, and I remained dry and comfortable.

While down insulation grabs the headlines for its warmth to weight ratio, loft and comfort, synthetic insulation’s superior route-proof nature means it will keep working when most down insulated kit has given up and gone home. This is why it’s an essential part of our range and a crucial part in any alpinist’s gear cupboard. Stamping your feet at the belay and windmilling your arms to get the blood following as the snow pours down, this is where synthetics earn their keep. Inside that fabric shell is a layer of insulation made from HD wool, a compound of natural sheep’s wool and PLA (polylactic acid, a plastic made from corn starch or sugar cane). It’s also fully biodegradable, while the wool itself is renewable, fully traceable, ethically produced and sourced from farmers who have signed up to eco schemes to improve biodiversity, soil health, natural irrigation systems and carbon sequestering. Full Specification Low bulk stretch bound cuffs with internal lycra closure to provide a snug fit and prevent heat loss PrimaLoft® has been the outdoor industry’s leading synthetic insulation for over a decade. Originally developed for the US military who required an insulation that would work in any conditions and provide the most warmth for its weight, PrimaLoft® soon found its way into the outdoor industry. That PrimaLoft® was patented under the name ‘artificial down’ gives you a good idea of the high standards PrimaLoft® were gunning for. The Photon features a Pertex Microlight 30D outer shell that is durable and also wind and water resistant. Inside there is 133g Primaloft Eco in the body and 100g in the sleeves. Primaloft Eco is a synthetic insulation that is thermally efficient, with superior water resistance, dries faster than down, is breathable and is as warm soft and compressible as down.

Lined with 100% recycled PEAQ Synthetic ECO fabric which is supremely comfortable next to the skin, highly breathable and fast drying The headline material here is OR’s VerticalX Eco SR insulation. This combines Repreve recycled polyester fill with Sorona, a renewable plant-based fabric that is particularly hard-wearing. The result is a highly compressible fill that offers excellent warmth for weight, a soft down-like feel and good performance even when wet. We’ve not yet quite mastered a like-for-like synthetic alternative to down – its formation is just too unique – and so there are still some downsides (sorry) to synthetic insulation in comparison to it. That being said, there are also some upsides to using synthetic insulation over down.Then there’s the outer shell fabric which is both lightweight and durable thanks to the Cordura fibres that make up the ripstop thread within it. Stretchy fleece-lined panels then line the sides of the torso and under the arms to add a bit of extra comfort and to aid the overall temperature regulation as well.
