Lands End Primaloft Nano Puff Clone? on 12/03/2012 18:55:55 MST Print View

We were in a Sears store today and I was looking over the Lands End goodies and found a jacket and vest with Primaloft insulation and built much like the Patagonia Nano Puff line. I guesstimate the weight to be a few ounces more as the shell fabric felt a bit heavier. $89 and currently 40% off and free shipping over $50. Note the tall sizes available.

Patagonia Nano Puff is 60g Primaloft One. Maybe similar to the 100g Primaloft One Patagonia Micro Puff but I suspect this is probably Primaloft Eco given the price.

It is about the same thickness as a Nano and nowhere near a Micro Puff. They state the fill is 100-gram Primaloft, which could still be wrong. I thought it was good to see a run-of-the-mill supplier get something light out.

Doesn't mention a drawcord at waist, which is a big deal breaker for me. For the money, you could diy one though. Wonder how light the vest is? Nano Vest w/ 60g primaloft comes in at 8.6 oz and this is 100 g. I think I am holding out for a mont bell thermawrap vest, which I think the premium price for the weight savings is prob. the better deal.
