Attention to Detail - Meticulously DesignedI've wanted to add a light hooded jacket to my outdoor gear for some time, but I haven't been happy with what I've seen out on the market. So I decided to buckle down and do some serious research. After looking at all the offerings from Marmot, Patagonia, North Face, etc., I landed on the Hot Forge Hoody from Black Diamond. ,,This product is designed extremely well. I love the attention to detail and the thought that went into the design. The sleeves, drawstrings, pockets and hoody are designed very well. I love the fit, but I did have to return my Small for a Medium. I'm 5'8" 37" chest, slender build, but the Small was too small, especially around my waist. I'm extremely pleased with this jacket.,,
What type of insulation does this jacket have? Description provides 3 different options. In the beginning it says 'down jacket', then it says ' PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation Down Blend', in specifications it says 'synthetic'. Which is the correct one?
Asked by: Brkln1
Thanks for the question. This jacket is a mixture between down and synthetic as it's insulated with Primaloft Gold Down Blend. That is a hybrid insulation consisting of 30% Primaloft synthetic and 70% water repellent goose down. I hope this helps.
