Originally developed for the US Army, PrimaLoft insulation is a water-resistant
synthetic alternative to goose down. That means you get all the warmth of down,
with none of the drawbacks.
A high warmth-to-weight ratio means
more warmth with less bulk.
Fibers that repel water stay dry
and comfortable longer.
Unsurpassed softness in insulation
that packs down small.
PrimaLoft insulation is first developed by
for the US Army by Albany International.
L.L.Bean outfits 30 international climbers –
including L.L.Bean former president Leon
Gorman – with prototype jackets for the
Mouht Everest Peace Climb.
L.L.Bean develops the Mountainlight Jacket,
the first commercially available product with
L.L.Bean PrimaLoft All-Sport Socks are the first
products made from PrimaLoft yarn, an exclusive
blend of merino wool and PrimaLoft fibers.
The L.L.Bean PrimaLoft Packaway Fuse
Jacket is among the first products to feature
new PrimaLoft Silver Insulation Active.
L.L.Bean is first to market with PrimaLoft
Gold Insulation Active, in the new
Mountain Pro Fleece Hoodie.
“It’s been a great partnership. I think it’s worked for
26 years because there’s a lot of trust. We’ll figure out
what the problem is, and they help solve the problem.
Then we put it all together.”
