Possibly one of the most versatile pieces in your layering system, our womens synthetics insulation products can be worn just over a base layer when the weather is fair, or under a hardshell when the rain comes in. We stock a range of technical womens synthetic insulation from leading brands such as Arc’Teryx and Cumulus, all of which are warm, water-resistant and offer various levels of wind resistance.
In regards to the differences between down and synthetic insulation, down products have a better warmth to weight ratio and fold down smaller, but are highly inefficient when wet. Synthetic insulation jackets are made from polyester fibres and might not fold down as small, but provides the same warmth when saturated, making it a more all-round product suitable for the majority of outdoor pursuits.
