Shopping for a new synthetic jacket in the Sale and I see a lot of brands now no longer using primaloft . Jottnar using thermolite. Is this similar to them moving away from polartec due to the cost of primaloft ?

Haglöfs & Arcteryx both use own-brand insulation. I've never noticed any difference: was looking at modern Polartec Alpha & similar in the sales today; Halgöfs' not-polartec-alpha was visually indistinguishable from all the others.

Consider the Ortovox jackets which are a wool blend weaved into a synthetic for stability. Excellent breathability and weight.

Mountain Equipment have their own brand as well as using Primaloft. I think it's called Polarloft. Incidentally if you happen to be about a 40"- 42" chest I have a Haglofs insulated jacket to sell cheap?
