Synthetic down has become very sophisticated over the last few years, with many coming close to down in terms of warmth to weight ratio. There are many reasons why we love synthetic down, here are just a few:
Unlike natural down, synthetic down is water resistant and carries on providing warmth even when wet.
The drying time of a jacket depends on how much water the jacket absorbs; Therefore, it’s no surprise that jackets with synthetic down dry much faster than regular down jackets.
Synthetic down is perfect for high-exertion activities as it helps regulate your body temperature so that you don’t get too hot orcold. A great synthetic can keep you warm whilst allowing enough air to escape.
