Body-Mapped Hybrid Insulation | Odin Lifaloft Down Hybrid Insulator
Introducing the Odin Lifaloft Down Hybrid Insulator. With a hybrid construction of natural Allied Down® and LIFALOFT™ 80g insulation, the Odin Lifaloft Down Hybrid Insulator adapts to all your high-intensity activities, providing warmth where you need it.
Designed for ski touring and mountaineering
The challenge with ski touring apparel is that it must keep you cool enough when you’re hiking up the mountain yet warm enough when you’ve reached the top (and are potentially a bit damp with sweat). The Odin Hybrid Lifaloft Insulator tackles this challenge in multiple ways. First of all, it’s packable and lightweight. So it’s easy to take it off and stuff it in your backpack if you overheat. But in a more advanced solution, it will keep you as cool as possible by the body-mapped construction of Allied Down® and LIFALOFT™.
Allied Down® and LIFALOFT™
Why choose between the qualities of synthetic and natural insulation when you can have both? By using body-mapping technology, the Odin Lifaloft Down Hybrid Insulator features strategically placed down and LIFALOFT™ sections of the jacket. Areas that are more susceptible to moisture, like the hood, shoulders, and armpits are insulated with LIFALOFT™. While Allied Down® insulates the areas requiring the most warmth, like your core. The result is maximum warmth with no cold spots.
Down is natural insulation that provides high levels of warmth but is less effective when wet. Down is also not as lightweight as most synthetic insulators. Yet still, down is a go-to choice for extreme warmth, especially from a natural fiber. LIFALOFT™, as a synthetic insulator, is 20% lighter than standard insulation and yet still just as warm – making it ideal for high-intensity activities.
Beyond the body-mapping technology, the Odin Lifaloft Down Hybrid features a revolutionary baffle construction that not only eliminates draft but also allows the insulator to mold to the wearer’s body to create an individualized fit. The baffles also increase breathability, key to preventing overheating.
