Why We Made This
Waterfowl hunters were in need of an insulating jacket that could be easily layered into a system and would fit comfortably into waders. Our approach was to capitalize on the wind-killing properties of GORE-TEX® INFINIUM® WINDSTOPPER laminate while maximizing heat retention and mobility. To keep that heat, we used PrimaLoft® Silver insulation for its high weight-to-warmth ratio, reducing bulk in the upper torso and sleeves. A high-pile Berber fleece was used in the lower torso for layering inside waders or bibs. This ideal combination of GORE™ face fabric and PrimaLoft® insulation was in an effort to maintain core warmth, maneuverability, and ease of layering.
