Anglers looking for a warm, comfortable and lightweight jacket will be interested to know more about the Core Jacket from Guideline.
The Core Jacket shares a number of qualities with similar garments designed for the outdoors, but what make it special, claims Guideline, is the fact that it is filled with 80 gram PrimaLoft Sport, a breathable material described by the maker as ‘the single, most thermally-efficient insulation available’.
“When wet, PrimaLoft not only out-performs goose down (the only thing to challenge it when dry), but all other synthetics too,” adds Guideline. “It repels water better than any other synthetic insulation, is as lightweight as down and also completely hypo-allergenic.
“Independent tests have shown that PrimaLoft is slightly warmer when dry compared to other synthetic insulations, but whereas other insulations lose up to 60% of their thermal retention when wet, PrimaLoft loses absolutely no insulating value.
“Add to this the ability to compress into low volume and you have the ideal material for any fishing trip.”
The Core Jacket is cut on the ‘slim fit’ side so it can be worn as a mid-layer garment under a wading jacket or as an ultra-light top layer. It is cut with a longer back to make sure it doesn’t expose the lower back when bending over.
The comfortable, low profile hood is filled with 40 gram Primaloft to make it warm, yet small enough to fit inside a wading jacket. There is a full length front zipper, two zippered side pockets, one zippered inside pocket, elastic cuffs and an adjustable hem.
The light nylon outer shell is backed with a breathable, water resistant PU coating and treated with a silicon-based water repellent layer on the outside, making it both wind-proof and lightly rain-proof, although it is not a rain garment. Weight in size ‘L’ is only 460 grams (16 oz).
