Alf reviews the Sherpa Nangpala Down Jacket, featuring Primaloft for the best of both worlds - Will it be as a good as it says?
WEBSITE: Sherpa Nangpala Hooded Down Jacket
WHAT THEY SAY: "Named after the main trading route between the Tibetans and Sherpas of the Khumbu. This jacket is insulated with PrimaLoft® GOLD 750 (a combination of goose down and PrimaLoft® fibres), which has some very special abilities, including retaining 95% of its warmth when it gets wet. In short, this jacket has an incredible warming performance, in an expanded range of conditions."
WHAT ALF SAYS: This is a really lovely jacket, featuring Primaloft Silver insulation, which is a 60/40 mix of goose down and Primaloft fibers that combines the benefits of both, in that it absorbs water 95 per cent slower than pure down, dries four times faster than down and retains 95 per cent of its warmth, even if it does get wet.
