The Mountain Equipment Superflux Jacket is a synthetically insulated jacket for excellent all weather warmth and protection. The outer fabric is windproof and highly water resistant Drilite Loft 20D whilst the insulation is a Polarloft featherless insulation by 3M. The Polarloft is contained in a stitch through quilted construction in the body and makes the Superflux suitable as an outer or midlayer depending on the weather.
The whole jacket packs into one of the 2 hand warmer pockets and there are twin carabiner clips inside so you can clip it to your harness. There's also an internal zipped security pocket. The front zipper is 2 way and the cuffs are elastane bound to keep them snug while a dual tether drawcord will keep draughts out.
Polarloft Featherless Insulation by 3M is a synthetic insulation which is designed to behave and work like down. This means that it is loose fill rather than bonded to the fabric as with traditional insulation. This means that it can provide more warmth vs weight and better breathability and although it is still not as good as down in this area it does benefit from losing much less performance when wet.

I am very pleased with this jacket. I bought it to use while out walking in cold weather . It's a good fit, very comfortable and light. Taking into account how light it is, I am impressed by how warm and wind proof it is, especially as I tend to just wear a t-shirt under it. There is a useful number of big pockets, which is great for carrying my phone and stuff for my dogs, while out.
The hood is adjustable and a very welcome feature in the cold windy weather I've been out in since having the jacket. It dries very quickly after getting wet. 5 mins in the tumble drier or a short time hanging up is enough to get it dry. This has become my go-to jacket and is a pleasure to wear. I could not be more pleased with my purchase.
