ThermoBall Synthetic Down Insulation- Thermoball is a synthetic insulation developed by Primaloft to emulate the loft and compressibility of down. Typical synthetics are manufactured in sheets, in a continuous-filament style, intended to provide a blanket warming effect. Continuous-filament synthetic insulations are effective at trapping heat, no doubt, but lack the packability and breathability of goose or duck down. Thermoball’s individual clusters create dead space for warm dry air storage, permit the efficient transmission of moisture vapor, and occupy minimal space in a pack.
