- Need a new warm(ish) jacket with synthetic insulation….
What conditions for?
There is quite a wide range of synthetic fills, everything from 40g/m2 to 133g/m2 (and more) so your desired use would help inform selection
My most used is a 60g/m2 fill Berghaus Ignite. Fits well so I can wear on the hills or down the pub, (but this is really reserved for outdoor use), plus I can layer with it (typically with a down vest).
I’ve got about 5 primaloft jackets – big fan. Find them more versatile than my down jacketsPosted 4 years agoslowclimbMember
Berghaus Asgard Hybrid – Primaloft & hyddrophobic down, amazing jacket – I’ve got one. On Sport Pursuit for £94 reduced from £190.Posted 4 years ago
Whole other quality level to the Montane, which I do think is a great jacket for the money too though. On Sport Pursuit for £94 reduced from £190.benp1Subscriber
Paramo is like wearing a microfleece and a windshirt
A 60g primaloft top is the same
the big differences are waterproofness, breathability and packability. They have very different purposes
For an all round top I’d say 40g was too cool. I’d be going for a 60g or 100g top. To be honest, in that range there are loads. Think about fit (long arms, slim cut, drop tail), options (pockets, hood) and function (i.e. pullover smock or jacket)
I find jackets more versatile, but they are slightly heavier and pack down ever so slightly bigger. But easier to put on and ventilatePosted 4 years ago
