The Dare 2b Guide to Insulated Jackets

Technical insulated jackets have definitely made the transition from purely outdoor activity wear to everyday style. And it's easy to see why - they keep you warm and dry, and look great too.

But not all filled jackets are created equal. Whether you're tackling your next mountain challenge, hitting the slopes or just dealing with the cold and rain on your daily commute, we're here to help you choose the right padded jacket to suit your needs.

Insulated Jackets: All You Need To Know

DOWN FILL

Our ethically sourced duck down is lightweight, breathable and keeps you extremely warm in colder climates. We offer 400 and 500 fill power - the higher the fill the more insulating the jacket is for its weight, so choose your jacket according to the conditions you need it for.

WOOL FILL

Natural wool - we all know how warm it is, but one of its great benefits is that it's still extremely insulating when damp and can hold moisture without feeling wet. It also has a high resistance to odour, which makes it the perfect partner for outdoor activity.
