When an arctic front hits the night before the bird spins or a chilly dawn patrol up Jackson’s Glory Bowl, the Primo Down keeps you stoked with all-day warmth and unbeatable weather protection. Our warmest and most protective insulated hard-shell jacket, the Primo Down combines durably waterproof/breathable and windproof 2-layer 100% nylon GORE-TEX® fabric with an insulating layer of 800-fill premium European goose down.

We use down insulation in some of our products because of its excellent performance: down has a higher warmth-to-weight ratio than synthetic insulation, and it is also more compressible.
GORE-TEX® products with 2-layer construction are designed for a wide range of outdoor activities. A specific GORE-TEX membrane is bonded to the outer material and protected on the inside by a separate lining. The separate lining ensures better wearing comfort and versatility. GORE-TEX products provide breathable comfort and durably waterproof and windproof protection.
