This in from Outlier : Three layers of highly breathable insulation for a dry and versatile warmth. A soft core of knit superfine New Zealand merino for a comfortable body climate. An outer face of virgin wool flannel for outdoor performance and sharp looks. Sandwiched in between is a 120 gram Primaloft Infinity insulation.
