PrimaLoft® SYNERGY, is an advanced multi-denier continuous filament insulation engineered for superior warmth, softness and loft. PrimaLoft® SYNERGY is constructed of both fine and ultra fine denier continuous filament fibers. This fiber composition results in an insulation that raises the performance bar of continuous filament insulations.Fine and ultra-fine fibers form tiny air pockets that trap body heat and keep the cold out. These fine and ultra-fine fibers are engineered for permanent water resistance and create tight surface tension that resists moisture penetration. The ultra-fine continuous filament fibers allow PrimaLoft® SYNERGY to be softer and more compressible.

This is a great, versatile piece that is perfectly fine by itself or as a layering piece under a rain shell. The insulation is Primaloft Gold, and is very warm even when wet. The Polartec panels on the side allow for a bit more "give"when moving and also breathe just a bit more in the right areas. The cut is perfect for either tucking into waders or can be worn over the top (I like it tucked in better). The hood is awesome--not too technical but does fit into rain shell hoods. Perfect when coupled with the Simms Slick Jacket. I test a lot of hunting and fishing products for Gore, and this is one of the most practical and versatile I have found yet.
