Kick it at the skate park in our new, limited edition coaches jacket that we designed in collaboration with Vans. The ultralight quilted ThermoBall™ synthetic insulation is a low-profile way to stay warmer in cold, wet conditions. Finished with a Vans x The North Face embroidered patch.
Developed in partnership with Primaloft, Inc., ThermoBall is a revolution in insulation technology. Unlike traditional continuous-filament synthetic insulation, the small, round PrimaLoft synthetic-fiber clusters closely mimic down clusters, trapping heat within small air pockets to retain warmth. Independent clo testing by Kansas State University has shown that ThermoBall has warmth equivalent to 600 fill goose down. As a result, ThermoBall can offer the lightweight warmth and compressibility of down with the wet-weather insulating performance of synthetic insulation.
