Just wondering, what some suggestions are on the best insulation for a jacket.
I have been exploring the Internet, and “all” are the best.
I would like some personal suggestions of real life experiences.
I have checked out Thinsulate, Insultex Insulation…etc.

Just curious to what has been proven with people.

It’s still very subjective as you’ve pointed out but the bottom line is climashield and primaloft are both really good. I think the clo numbers are a little better on the primaloft but it does require to be stabilized more often which can effect warmth.

For me it’s the issue of drape and feel, I like primaloft better. If I’m going to take the time, and money to make it. It’s not just about the numbers. Climashield is a bit stiffer and better suited towards bags.
