The skirt's construction is eco-friendly, with the aeroDownproof face fabric made from 100% recycled nylon at 39 g/m2. The front half of the skirt incorporates thermo40 insulation (40 g/m2), while the back features thermo80 insulation (80 g/m2), both composed of 100% recycled polyester. Key features include an elasticated waist with an adjustable tightening mechanism, two convenient zippered hand pockets, a zipped gusset for increased mobility, and a full zip-on solution for easy donning and doffing. The skirt offers a regular fit that's slightly longer in the back, ensuring a comfortable and functional experience during your outdoor adventures.
The quilted synthetic insulation construction adds to the warmth and comfort, while the reflective safety logo enhances visibility in low-light conditions. Optional side slits offer adaptability, and a smooth elasticated waistband ensures a snug fit. The synthetic insulation in this piece is designed to be windproof and provide excellent thermal insulation, helping the body maintain its temperature and minimize energy loss. It's a reliable alternative to down, retaining its functionality even in wet conditions. Synthetic insulation also offers a strong warmth-to-weight ratio and is easy to maintain. The number associated with "Thermo" indicates the weight in grams per square meter of the insulation used in the product. Norrona sources its synthetic insulation from reputable suppliers such as Primaloft and Pinneco, ensuring top-notch quality. It's important to note that insulated products, in general, tend to have lower breathability.
