What is the difference between the Airshield...

What is the difference between the Airshield laminate technology in the Chillwave Parka and the Conduit SL in the older Subzero SL Parka? Are there any performance advantages?

From what I've seen, there is no real difference. Consider Airshield to be comparable to Gore Windstopper, and Conduit as regular goretex. Basically the same thing. MHW isn't very helpful on their website with the differences between Airshield Core and DryQ Core, so I would assume they're basically the same thing, perhaps with slightly different fabrics being the main difference. Expect the same performance or better with the new one. MHW puts a lot of effort into having great products, so you can trust they didn't cut corners.
