The Hi-Q jacket is not only good looking but is a very effective mid-layer, according to our kit expert Alf Alderson.
WHAT THEY SAY: "A fast drying and highly compressible micro baffled jacket, the Hi-Q Luxe Micro Jacket uses lightweight PERTEX® Quantum fabric with PrimaLoft® GOLD Luxe Insulation."
WHAT ALF SAYS: The Hi-Q Luxe doesn’t just look good, it performs too. It uses PrimaLoft Gold Luxe synthetic insulation which offer a combination of warmth, compressibility and lightness (the jacket weighs 575g) without the disadvantages of traditional down fillings, which cease to perform when wet and take ages to dry. In addition, the jacket has a construction that means the insulation doesn’t become bunched up.
