synthetic insulation debate on 11/16/2011 08:43:54 MST Print View

I need help settling a debate with a hiking buddy of mine. All of my insulating garments have primaloft as their primary insulation. He asserts that Polarguard is a much superior insulation. I have searched for over-parkas and pants that contain polarguard and all I can find are references from 2006 and before.

What happened to polarguard and how does climasheild fit into the mix?

I am looking for a "fat suit" to don when in camp or stopping for lunch on extended trips in the minus F scale. (I have found polarguard in sleeping bags)

Thanks,

Dave


A polarguard suit was made for the NOLS winter mountaineeering training, but the company is now non-existent
