Which should i get - primaloft or power stretch
i know they are totally different fabrics but i was after somethign to keep me warm when sat around so my first thoughts were with primaloft, i then decided that i dont get that cold so could just get a powerstretch top that would then be more verstatile as could wear when walking.
ive been looking at the rab generator jacket/smock, montane prism, rab powerstretch top and a couple of other powerstretch tops.
which would you go for?
Thanks matt, thanks excatly how i was thinking.
i am leaning more towards the primaloft stuff....and also a jacket as opposed to a smock as it makes it a bit easier to get on and off
primaloft is an excellent allrounder
if you at all unsure get a primaloft jacket
if you are happy you can keep it dry get a down
mine is a primaloft jacket for camp, lunch breaks and sleeping duties
Powerstretch is great for moving activities, combining some warmth with moisture management.
Primaloft is primarly a warming material.
For hiking, I would only consider Primaloft / Polarguard or some down jacket.For running / climbing / cycling powerstretch.
Here's a pic of a Rab Generator jacket stuffed into it's own chest pocket.
That's a standard 30cm ruler next to it but the pocket's not a tight fit at all and it can be squashed down to close to half that width I'd say. Rab quote a weight of 380g but I've just weighed mine and it's 328g (size small).
I love powerstretch but it is expensive so I tend to wear it next to the skin when I really need stretch - otherwise you might as well go for a cheaper fleece like P100.
