Retailers to Exchange Gently Used Coats for Jackets with New PrimaLoft® Performance Down Blends; Donations Go to The Road Home

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH (January 10, 2014) – As part of the debut of its Performance Down Blends, PrimaLoft (, the world leader in comfort solutions and high-performance insulations and fabrics, will host the PrimaLoft Retailer Coat Swap at the 2014 Outdoor Retailer Winter Market Jan. 22-25. Retailers are invited to PrimaLoft’s booth (39043) to trade in old coats for a new PrimaLoft® Performance Down Blends jacket voucher while supplies last. PrimaLoft will donate the coats to Salt Lake City’s The Road Home, a private non-profit social services agency assisting individuals and families experiencing homelessness. 

The new PrimaLoft® Performance Down Blends lead the brand’s 2014 product offerings and feature a patent-pending blend of PrimaLoft® permanent water repellent, ultra-fine denier fibers and the highest quality water-repellent, fluorocarbon-free down. The new insulations are available in three performance levels. PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation Down Blend has comparable warmth in construction to 750 fill power goose down, retains more than 95 percent of warmth when wet, and dries four times faster than untreated down. PrimaLoft® Silver Insulation Down Blend has comparable warmth in construction to 650 fill power goose down, retains 94 percent of warmth when wet, and dries four times faster than untreated down. 

Show attendees can track the progress of the coat swap each day via a display case inside the Salt Palace’s East Entrance and are welcome to contribute a coat by dropping it off at the PrimaLoft booth.
