PrimaLoft® SYNERGY Insulation Raises the Bar

PrimaLoft® SYNERGY Raises the Bar with a New Multidenier Continuous Filament Insulation for Sleeping Bags and Outerwear

Albany, NY – (Feb. 2, 2011) – After extensive research and development, PrimaLoft®, the world leader in performance insulations, introduces PrimaLoft® SYNERGY, the next generation in multidenier continuous filament insulation engineered to provide improved thermal efficiency, increased thickness, better compressibility, and enhanced softness.

A durable companion soon to be found in mountaineering, backpacking and camping gear, PrimaLoft® SYNERGY was designed for use in sleeping bags and garments, and is highly compressible with excellent warmth-to-weight ratio and water repellency. Comprised of a 100-percent polyester blend of multidenier fibers, PrimaLoft® SYNERGY features a phenomenal 25-percent increase in thermal performance versus conventional continuous filament insulations.

Launched at the 2011 Outdoor Retailer Winter Market with enthusiastic response from PrimaLoft® brand partners, “PrimaLoft® SYNERGY establishes a new performance benchmark for continuous filament insulation through technical innovation,” noted Eileen Berner, sales and marketing director for PrimaLoft®.

Recommended for use in sleeping bags and outerwear, PrimaLoft® SYNERGY is highly durable and compressible, and specially formulated to keep the user warm, dry and comfortable. Unlike down fills for use in sleeping bags and jackets, PrimaLoft® SYNERGY is migration resistant and exceptionally easy to care for.

PrimaLoft® SYNERGY complements PrimaLoft's existing product line, which includes: PrimaLoft® ONE, PrimaLoft® SPORT, PrimaLoft® INFINITY, PrimaLoft® ECO and PrimaLoft® ECO FOOTWEAR. PrimaLoft® insulations provide maximum warmth without bulk, superior water resistance, softness, and compressibility to deliver performance and comfort from head-to-toe.
