After listening to feedback from the field, the Elite jackets have been re equipped with reinforced patch covering all stress points; shoulder, elbow and cuff (Green side only) and now come with a compression stuff sack so you can really get the benefit out of Snugpaks highly compressible softie instulation.
The Jacket is universally loved by International military personnel and has proved to be reliable insulation in hostile conditions. They are as warm as any synthetic jacket I have tried and a damn site more reliable than down jackets,
When you first put it on you dont think it's going to be that warm due to it's smooth inner but after a few minutes you're starting to get warm. It compresses down into it's own stuff sack and is light considering how cosy it feels.
If you can only afford one jacket for the winter then you wouldn't go far wrong with this one
Paratex Light is made up of bundles of fine filament yarns (34 fine strands per bundle - 10,000metres of each bundle only weighing 54g each filament shown in the picture is 10 times finer than a human hair) the gaps between the fibres cause the moisture to wick across a larger surface area allowing it to evaporate more readily, as the moisture is evaporating from within the fabric the user is not cooled, ideal for a sleeping bag lining!
What it is: Lightweight Nylon Fabric
How it works: Finely constructed from fine filament yarns(34 stands per bundle 10,000metres of each bundle weighing only 54 grammes) each filament 10 times finer than a human hair. the gaps between the fibres cause the moisture to wick across a larger surface area allowing it to evapourate more readily. as the perspiration is evapourating from within the fabric the user is not cooled.
Where it is used: Ideal as a sleeping bag lining or as a casing fabric for lightweight low packsize insulated clothing.
Highly Breathable (will transmit 12 litres of moisture per m2 per 24 hours)
Soft to the touch
Wind proof to the industry standard of 3 cubic feet per minute (this keeps strong winds out or when used as a lining warm air and loft in)
Water Repellent a British Standard Spray Rating of 4 Minimum (water repellancy can be maintained by a cool tumble dry after washing and periodic retreatment with suitable after care products such as Nikwax or Grangers)
As part of our continuing development process to keep our synthetic insulation at the leading edge we are pleased to introduce the next generation in sleeping bag technology. Softie Premier uses the same basic principles as traditional softie but improvements in extrusion technology and binding resins result in a finer, softer and more durable insulation. Both Softie and Softie Premier are exclusive to Snugpak.
