For full-on alpine conditions, the DAS Parka is our warmest synthetic insulated jacket; it’s made with 120-g PrimaLoft® Silver Insulation Hi-Loft throughout, with 60-g PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation added in core areas, and a lightweight, PU-coated nylon ripstop shell that’s durable, water-resistant and windproof.
We use PrimaLoft® insulation inside insulated garments for its warmth, compressibility, and soft comfort. While the human body uses energy to stay warm, PrimaLoft insulation uses a patented microfiber structure to help the body retain warmth and conserve energy.
The proprietary ultra-fine fibers of PrimaLoft insulation form a tight collection of air pockets that trap heat from your body and keep the cold out, providing an excellent warmth-to-weight ratio. When insulation gets wet, it loses these air pockets and consequently, its insulating properties. PrimaLoft ultra-fine fibers were developed to be water resistant so your insulation stays drier and maintains its insulating properties even when wet.
We promote fair labor practices, safe working conditions and environmental responsibility throughout the Patagonia supply chain.
