This jacket has 100 grams of insulation...
This jacket has 100 grams of insulation which is easy enough to understand except for the fact it has an insulated hood.
Does the hood account for some of that 100 grams? How much is in the body of the jacket? I don't want to go below 100 grams in the body; if anything I'd prefer 150, but that's hard to find. Thank you.
This jacket does not have a total of 100 grams of insulation. It has 100 grams per meter squared. I assume it also uses the 100g WarmCore in the hood. The 100g Primaloft will be warmer than a lower fill weight assuming the same type of Primaloft, but it will also be heavier. There's not a whole lot of information on the WarmCore as it is proprietary to Helly Hansen. It is used in their "lifestyle, kids and junior ranges", so I assume it won't be as good as something like Primaloft One. It won't be as warm per weight or as compressible, and it probably won't hold its insulation value as well when it's wet.
