The North Face™ has developed a partnership with Primaloft® to create a new synthetic alternative to down. Thermoball™ is a revolution in insulation technology because, unlike traditional, continuous-filament synthetic insulation, the small round Primaloft® synthetic fiber clusters closely to mimic down clusters; trapping heat within small air pockets to retain warmth.

Independent CLO testing by Kansas State University has shown that Thermoball technology can offer the low weight, loft, warmth, and compressibility of down with the wet-weather insulating performance of synthetics.

Designed to imitate down, ThermoBall is constructed with low-weight, high-loft clusters that retain heat even when wet.

Some of the benefits of this amazing new tech include:

  • Lightweight
  • Phenomenal warmth in cold and wet conditions
  • Just as compressible as down
  • Insulates even when wet
  • Thermoball insulation technology which mimics the effect of down, without having to harm animals.
