Delta, Primaloft-- never the twain shall meet.
Joe, I have just the opposite experience with PL vs. Delta. I find that PL does not drape nearly as well as Delta. I have handled both raw Delta and various forms of Primaloft. But such debates may...

Back to comparing jackets...
Show me such a jacket and I'll let you know, Dondo. Again, I have yet to see a UL PL jacket. Not saying it's not possible, just that there's not one on the market and AYCE's Kinsmen...

cheap but excellent sunglasses
I get nearly all my sunglasses from STP heavily discounted. I never pay more than 50-60 dollars and often less. I like glasses from Native Eyewear and Spy. They are what I use for all my backpackin...

Let's compare jackets as well as insulations
Is this akin to a pharmaceutical company testing it's own drugs to get FDA approval? AYCE's Kinsman uses Primaloft. Just asking. >:-)> All I can say is that on a per weight basis ...

In the Sub one pound category of packs made specifically for backpacking, this is probably the finest blend of form and function---a "practical" SUL Pack that is still composed of lightweigh...

It's never leaked in it's 1 1/2 years of use and have come to trust it. I generally use this on group trips where it's nice to have larger volumes of purified water on hand in camp situati...

Platypus Platy Reservoir
The dedicated hydration systems by Platypus are more reliable than the "retrofit" of the resevoir into one. The Big Zip is far better to the purpose.
