Down vs Primaloft One questions
I just purchased some Primaloft One to make a UQ with.
I've been searching around a lot and cannot find any info directly comparing this insulation to down.
Can anyone give any solid #s comparing the 2?
If 2 nearly identical quilts are built, 1 with 16 oz of 850fp Down and 1 with 16 oz of Primaloft one:
which will be warmer? by how much?
which will pack smaller? by how much?
which will perform better after a few years of use?
I do a lot of BWCA camping. I chose synthetic for my first UQ to get some experience building and using it, and because of the claimed durability, and wet properties.
Before I choose a TQ insulation, I would like to know exactly how Down compares, without building both and trying it.
Thanks for any help.
