Insulators are mostly used during layering under winter jackets or shells. In most occasions you can wear your insulator out on the town during après, or in other general non-riding environments to stay warm.
Outerwear is meant to be your line of defense between you and the elements. Unless labeled as a “shell,” outwear has a certain amount of insulation built into it. Burton outerwear comes with “light,” “mid,” and “heavy” insulation for all kinds of winter weather.
Down – Offers superior warmth for coldest conditions, has best packability and minimal weight.
Synthetic – down-like loft and insulation performance, not moisture sensitive, insulates while damp, fast drying, and breathable.
