The Women’s Mountain Hardwear Thermostatic Jacket with a new type of insulation called Therma Q. Mountain Hardwear claim’s it’s 20% warmer than the leading synthetics – but they probably mean it’s 20% warmer than the synthetics they were using before (Thermic Micro) – which finally gives us an idea of the likely c|o value of Thermic Micro – about .70 clo/oz.
The women’s Thermostatic is a low-profile synthetic down jacket, perfect for warmer winter days and a great layering piece on the colder days. It’s pretty impressive how warm this jacket is, considering how lightweight and small it is. Thermal. Q Elite synthetic insulation is not only warm, but packs down nicely. The fleece lined pockets are a nice touch to the jacket on cool days when worn as an outer layer piece. We would add a zippered chest pocket, if we could make one change.
