What are the insulating properties of PrimaLoft®?
PrimaLoft® scores high with its excellent ratio of warmth, weight and volume. With its fibre thickness of less than one Denier (that’s less than one gram per 9,000 metres), PrimaLoft® fibres are finer than all other synthetic fibre insulation materials on the market. The result: better heat retention and more fill power.
Much like down, PrimaLoft® clings perfectly to the body, is compressible to a small size and extraordinarily warm. In some ways, however, the synthetic insulation is clearly superior to the natural material: Thanks to a special PFC-free impregnation, PrimaLoft® fibres are water-repellent. And even when wet, they retain their puffy shape and about 98% of their insulating properties. Unlike down, PrimaLoft® padding keeps you perfectly warm, even in the rain, in high humidity, or when you break a sweat. At the same time, water vapours can escape the clothing unhindered at any time – for a pleasantly dry feel.
In addition, PrimaLoft® is free of animal materials, making it ethically sound and allergy-friendly.
What are the different types of PrimaLoft®?
The classic PrimaLoft® insulation comes in three quality grades, which differ in fibre technology and blend: PrimaLoft® Gold, PrimaLoft® Silver and PrimaLoft® Black. Martini Sportswear uses only the manufacturer’s highest-performing insulation material, PrimaLoft® Gold.
