Warm, fluffy down & synthetic jackets for all weather Insulating yourself from the cold is the most important thing you can do when staying in cold temperatures. The body only produces a certain amount of heat, so it's important to make sure it stays close to the body and gives you the warmth you so desperately want. With the help of a down or synthetic jacket, you help the body to keep warm, even when it gets really rough outside! Down or synthetic? When you decide to buy a new, warm jacket, the first thing you have to decide is whether you want one with synthetic or down filling. Both options have advantages as well as disadvantages and the choice largely depends on where and when you will use your jacket. A down jacket is the best option when it comes to the ratio between warmth and weight as the natural material is the best when it comes to pure insulating ability, also down is very compressible and the jacket can be easily compressed into a small ball. The downside, however, is that down is also quite sensitive, which means that if the jacket gets wet, it loses a large part of its function and must also be dried properly so that the down is not damaged. Synthetic, on the other hand, copes with moisture much better and helps you keep the heat reasonably well even if it gets wet, it is also easier to care for and does not require any special procedures when, for example, washing. Synthetic-lined jackets, on the other hand, do not provide as good insulation in relation to weight as down does, which means that the filling in a synthetic jacket that is as warm as a down jacket weighs more and they also cannot be compressed in the same way as a down jacket. If you know that you will use the jacket in wet and humid environments, it may be a good idea to choose a synthetic jacket, but if you prioritize low weight and good insulation, a down jacket may be the right choice for you. There is no right or wrong here, but you have to decide for yourself what works best for you
