Alf puts the high-tech and very lightweight Uranostind mid-layer from Bergans on test in his latest gear review.
WEBSITE: Bergans of Norway
WHAT THEY SAY: "Very lightweight jacket in heat-insulating PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation. Designed as a reinforcement garment for use as a resting jacket on ski touring, or underneath a shell jacket on cold days. The PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation keeps you warm even when it is wet. Uranostind is part of Bergans’ Slingsby range, which consists of ski touring and mountaineering products in which superior functionality, low weight and premium durability are perfectly balanced. Slingsby provides exactly what's needed with nothing surplus to requirements!"
WHAT ALF SAYS: This very lightweight (365g) mid-layer utilises PrimaLoft Gold Insulation to keep you surprisingly warm, along with a windproof and water-repellent Pertex Microlight shell fabric.
