Padded synthetic fibre was developed as an alternative to down. Why do we need an alternative to down? Well, if down gets wet, its thermal insulation capacity decreases and it takes a long time for it to dry. Synthetic fibre, on the other hand, keeps you warm even when wet and dries very quickly. If you're regularly out and about in wet and cold weather, be it on hikes, during a walk in the woods, walking the dog or going for a stroll in the city, a padded synthetic fibre jacket may well be perfect for you. They're not only warm; they're often windproof, low-maintenance, robust, breathable, at least water-repellent, and some models are even waterproof. With or without a hood, padded synthetic fibre jackets also work great under a hardshell rain jacket.
Synthetic jackets have synthetic as the primary insulator. They are made from polyester that has been spun into fragments, which are incredible at creating tiny air pockets between each other. These fragments also trap heat next to your body, thus keeping it impressively warm. At Addnature, we have a wide range of premium quality synthetic jackets at your disposal to keep you warm and comfortable. We pay attention to quality and thus offer you synthetic jackets that look good on the outside and make you feel even better in the inside.
The most re-known synthetic insulation producers are Bergans, Patagonia, Axant, The North Face, Marmot and Columbia insulation, all working towards more significant innovation and production of top-grade synthetic insulation. Whether you are setting out on a trail for a walk or you need warmth and comfort on a chilly evening, the trick is choosing the right jacket for your need.
So, When Exactly Do You Get To Wear Your Synthetic Jacket?
As much as synthetic jackets are incredibly useful during the winter season, they are not tucked away when it's finally summer. Synthetic jackets are comfortable to wear and super light and easy to carry around. Wearing these jackets through the summer period is possible and convenient as they are windproof and offer warm evenings and early mornings. We take pride in providing you all season, reliable and synthetic jackets that are breathable and flexible enough to wear during hiking and camping events. An example of such a groundbreaking jacket brand is the Columbia powder lite hooded jacket whose insulation technology regulates and maintains the body's heat while eliminating moisture and excessive heat out of the body.
What you should consider when buying synthetic Jackets
Water-resistance is one of the main essential features of synthetic jackets as they can maintain insulation and warmth even when they are wet, and this gains them more popularity. This property renders synthetic jackets useful during the cold, wet, and windy winter season. The light fabrics that make them up are treated with hydrophobic, which makes them water repellant, and this makes them super easy to clean and take less time to dry. Axant Als Primaloft jacket, for instance, utilizes PrimaLoft padding to make it water-resistant, warm, fast-drying, lightweight, and compact.
Synthetic fiber does not provide a convenient place for growth and multiplication of molds and mildew. Therefore, a synthetic jacket can survive and remain effective in cold, wet, and damp conditions without worrying about getting an infection. This, however, should not encourage you to keep your jackets dirty and wet.
Synthetic jackets maintain their efficiency even through tough days, long nights, and many washes. As compared to other brands, maintaining a synthetic jacket is relatively more straightforward. You can even clean your jacket by using a washing machine provided you follow the instructions on the tag. At AddNature, we are grounded in research to facilitate excellent and exclusive synthetic jackets that are efficient and convenient based on your needs, taste, and preferences.
