Down and Synthetic Insulated Jackets

Insulated jackets are typically filled with high-quality duck down or synthetic fibres like https://www.primaloft.com/">Primaloft®. Deciding which is best for you largely depends on cost, weather conditions, and ethical preferences. Down can be expensive but has a high warmth to weight ratio whereas synthetic is more cost effective and performs better in wet conditions.
Other things to consider are hoods with fur, no fur or faux-fur trim, wind or water resistance, and whether you need an insulated jacket that is knee or waist length. This choice comes down to whether you’re looking for increased coverage or improved range of motion, respectively.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a parka and an insulated jacket?

Parkas are generally longer, heavier, and more protective than insulated jackets and are designed for extreme weather conditions, while insulated jackets are shorter and lighter, and meant for less harsh weather conditions. Lightweight insulated jackets are versatile and can be worn in a variety of situations, such as a mid layer for sports like ski, snowboard, hiking or camping. They can also be worn as an everyday jacket in cool fall or spring weather.

Do puffer jackets keep you warm?

Puffer jackets, also known as a puffy or quilted jacket, do keep you warm but you have to know what to look for..
These jackets are made up of down or synthetic insulation that’s squished between two layers of water resistant technical fabric. The stitching of a puffer jacket––and, what gives the garment the “puffy” look––evenly distributes the filling.
The final product is an incredibly warm and lightweight staple. At Altitude Sports we offer a range of high-quality puffer jackets whether you’re looking for extreme outdoor sportswear or cost-effective layers.

What are the types of jacket insulation?

Some of the most popular types of insulation include down insulation: made from the plumage of ducks or geese and synthetic insulation: made from man-made materials such as polyester. Primaloft is also a synthetic insulation that mimics down insulation.
