    I don't "prefer" one over the other. Frankly, I have only used Cimashield and it's a real pain in the keister. But I have read numerous descriptions and comments indicating Primaloft is really only good for things where 'drape' isn't that important(ie things that aren't UQs or TQs).

    That's not an opinion based on anything only what I've read.

    And Climashield has served me very well.

    according to the information I've seen on thru-hiker, the climasheild is rated as a better insulator (comparative thicknesses/weights ie- 5oz/sqyd).
