For the 2017 Autumn / Winter season, we have teamed up with PrimaLoft® and created two jackets, the Icarus and the Phoenix, using the new ThermoPlume® insulation. This insulation is the step in the evolution of synthetic down and the highest performing synthetic insulation to date. Mimicking the fluidity, feel and aesthetics of goose down more closely than ever before. ThermoPlume gives the loft and compressibility of down, whilst retaining all the benefits of the traditional PrimaLoft insulation that we know and trust to keep us warm, even when wet.
Part of the PrimaLoft Black Insulation Range, ThermoPlume is made from 60% recycled materials and we have continued this trend throughout the construction. The outer fabric is PERTEX® QUANTUM ECO, a lightweight and windproof outer, benefiting from durable water repellency. The inner fabric is a PEAQ Synthetic ECO lining that is supremely comfortable next to skin and highly breathable.
The Icarus and Phoenix jackets have been designed to provide insulation on the move and resting, as a standalone jacket or as part of a layering system. By using a combination of micro and nano baffles the Icarus and Pheonix jackets allow for a close body fit whilst retaining the dynamic freedom of movement needed in the mountains. Perfect for alpine mountaineering, mountain walking and ski touring this is a must-have jacket for the winter season.
“Mimicking natural down more closely than ever before and adding all the wet weather performance advantages of PrimaLoft, our design team is excited to add those innovative properties into our new Icarus and Phoenix Jackets, to bring cutting edge, down-centric styles to consumers. The packability and thermal efficiency of PrimaLoft ThermoPlume is an integral part of our technical yet versatile Autumn Winter 2017 insulation portfolio.” - Lottie Watkinson, Design Manager
