Austrian brand Carinthia has opened orders this week for the new utilitarian insulated G-Loft TLG Jacket. According to the developers, the novelty is made using Carinthia ISO Mapping Technology, which made it possible to create a relatively light, compact and comfortable insulated jacket for active use in various situations..
The outer layer of the G-Loft TLG Jacket is made primarily of water-repellent polyamide material, the side panels and under-sleeve panels are made of a blend of stretch material (92% polyester, 8% elastane) and breathable mesh (75% polyamide, 25% elastane) . The insulating filling is made using Carinthia ISO Mapping technology, the torso is insulated with G-LOFT STi (Stable Insulation) 40 g/m2, while G-LOFT Ci (Compact Insulation) 30 g/m2 is used to insulate the sleeves, shoulders and hood. Both insulations are made of hydrophobic polyester fibers.
The design of the jacket features a low profile hood with an elasticated neckline and high storm collar, a slightly dropped back, volume adjustments at the hem, elongated profiled sleeves with elasticated cuffs, a YKK front zip closure, as well as two external hand warmer pockets and one internal chest pocket under various small things. The total weight of the insulated jacket in the average size does not exceed 180 grams.
