At the pinnacle of performance, 3M Thinsulate Platinum Flex insulation is a breathable, moisture resistant fiber with four-way stretch for maximum comfort and warmth. For lighter weight jackets that still keep the warmth in, 3M Thinsulate Featherless is an alternative to natural down that has the warmth of 650 down fill and is light, breathable and comfortable. An industry standard, the classic Thinsulate insulation is the highly breathable, lightweight synthetic insulation that is trusted for warmth.
