Do Your Research: Insulation

When purchasing an insulation piece, take these three key elements into consideration: One, figure out where in your layering system you want your insulation to fall. Second, think about your activity level. Finally, know your expected temperature ranges when figuring out what level of insulation is needed.

KENAI ULTRA

KENAI ULTRA

An incredibly lightweight yet durable synthetic fill jacket that breathes far better than other insulation layers, keeping you comfortable during strenuous activity. Ideal as a warm mid-layer, or as an outer layer piece for high-output cold weather mountain hunting applications. 3DeFX+® synthetic insulation is the first of its kind to incorporate continuous fiber technology. The long spiral strands of fill are loftier and warmer and don’t require fabric coating to keep the insulation from migrating through the fabric. The 30D Stunner Stretch nylon face fabric is strong, light, and dead quiet. Uncoated fabric and body mapped insulation allows us to make a jacket that breathes at an exponentially higher rate, keeping the user dryer, warmer, and more comfortable during long climbs and extremely active use.

- Weight: 14.5 oz

- Body mapped with 90g in the front and 60g in the sides & hood

- Coated with Toray DWR for water resistance

- Highly Breathable to prevent overheating

- Ideal for high-output cold weather hunting applications

SUPER DOWN ULTRA

SUPER DOWN ULTRA

Designed for the outdoorsman looking for an incredibly lightweight yet warm insulation piece. This jacket should be in your pack on every hunt until the weather turns and more insulation is needed. With a mid-layer fit, the ULTRA has room for base and additional mid-layers, but fits snug enough so there is no bunching if worn under another jacket. Constructed with a 12D nylon ripstop that stretches with your body minimizing restriction. 2.3oz of 850+ fill goose down treated with a DWR on each individual cluster makes the down impervious to moisture. A specialized finishing process gave us the ability to use less down proof coating to create a lighter and more durable fabric. This new process in addition to the down proof coating makes the fabric completely windproof. The ideal piece for any early - mid-season hunt.

Sized like our Rain Gear, this jacket is cut to fit over the top of all your layers except your hardshell. Multiple features allow you to tailor the fit to your body and trap or exhaust body heat.
