Down Jackets vs Wool/Synthetic Insulated Jackets
Each material brings its advantages and disadvantages. While down jackets are well-known for offering better warmth with less weight, they perform poorly when wet. For waterproof options look to wool and synthetic-based insulation that are waterproof. We can suggest buying down jackets for dry climate adventures and wool and synthetic for damp to wet climates.
Remember - staying warm is all about the layering, we also offer Thermal Tops, Waterproof Rain Jackets , and Insulated Vests at K2 Base Camp. Be sure to check them out and set yourself up with the a complete Alpine-ready kit! For more information on how to properly layer, check out this blog post.
