Never one place. Always one jacket.
Down is a great insulator, super compressible, super light and oh so toasty but there are a couple of things about down filled products that make them not so useful in certain situations. Down can be expensive plus, as a product derived from animals, some people are unhappy to utilise it in their day to day routines. It can also be a bit messy when it gets wet and specialist cleaning is required to maintain it.
Because of these reasons and maybe some more besides, The North Face™ developed a partnership with Primaloft® to offer a new synthetic alternative to down.
Thermoball™ is the fruit of that research and devolpment and it is a revolution in insulation technology.
Unlike traditional, continuous-filament synthetic insulations that have been developed and continue to be used in a lot of other situations, the small, round, Primaloft synthetic fiber clusters can combine closely to mimic down clusters; trapping heat within small air pockets to retain warmth and yet not be affected by exposure to moisture in the same way that down is.
ThermoBall™ Technology offers the low weight, loft, warmth, and compressibility of down with the wet-weather insulating performance of a synthetic.
FOR ANY ACTIVITY – Strike the perfect balance of warmth and mobility during your next training session with a streamlined ThermoBall™ jacket that’s insulated for lightweight warmth in all conditions.
FOR ANY CONDITION – Stay warmer on the mountain with the all-weather versatility of a packable ThermoBall™ insulated jacket that retains loft and warmth, even when wet.
FOR ANY ENVIRONMENT – Layer for lightweight warmth and comfort on cold-weather outings with a versatile ThermoBall™ insulated jacket that remains warm in wet surroundings.
From foreign layovers to soaking wet chairlifts, over 30 styles of ThermoBall™ provide ultralight warmth in any condition. As an added bonus, it’s also capable of compressing itself right down into its pocket!
It’s the perfect go-to for all of your outdoor adventures, whether it’s tackling Lugnaquilla on a particularily murky day, setting out boats for a morning’s regatta or just as a dependable layer for the daily commute, our #thermoball range does it all.
