What is Primaloft?

The most preferred synthetic insulation by leading bedding manufacturers, Primaloft® also provides superb performance in high-quality, cold-weather wear. Made of superior-quality microfibers, Primaloft mimics all the warmth and lofting properties of down. These patented, ultrafine fibers are specially treated to create a core with remarkable insulating abilities.

Developed for the exacting demands of the US Army

Developed for the United States Army in the 1980s as an alternative to goose-down insulation, Primaloft is soft, warm, and highly breathable. Most-importantly, it repels water with ease, maintaining its warmth even when wet, to keep the wearer dry, warm, and comfortable even in extreme conditions. With the highest warmth-to-weight ratio of any synthetic insulation currently available, Primaloft meets the exacting demands of outdoor enthusiasts, sportsmen, and the military.

Luxury bedding

Wonderfully soft and lightweight, Primaloft is the premier synthetic fill for quality bedding. Anti-microbial and hypoallergenic, it offers a comfortable and restful night’s sleep to allergy-sensitive sleepers, including small children. The super-fine microscopic fibers in Primaloft form tiny air pockets to wisc away moisture, keeping bedding fresh and dry. Because of its extraordinary softness, ease of care, and anti-microbial and hypoallergenic properties, Primaloft is used in luxury comforters, pillows, and mattress pads from the world’s leading bedding manufacturers.
