When it's cold outside, a synthetic gilet is the perfect alternative to a synthetic jacket! And if it really gets frosty, you can wear one with your jacket as an extra layer of insulation. With the right synthetic vest, chills will become a thing of the past!
What makes for a good synthetic vest?
It goes without saying that good synthetic vests should be comfortable and have a good fit. But there are a few important properties that set them apart from other outdoor gilets. Synthetic gilets combine excellent heat retention with breathability. Thanks to their synthetic fiber lining, they lose almost none of their thermal output, even when they get wet. They make it easy to withstand light rain showers. Unlike for down vests, moisture is not a problem for synthetic vests. A synthetic vest also dries very quickly, which can be beneficial during multi-day tours. Synthetic gilets are also very easy to clean. If your synthetic gilet gets dirty during outdoor activities, you can easily clean it in your home washing machine.
