Toasty Columbia Heatzone 1000 TurboDown™
Winter is coming, Winter is coming, but cold had no fury with this new jacket from Columbia, the name itself sounds intimidating they call it the “Heatzone 1000” and Columbia have been increasing the Heatzone for this line all the way up to the most current one which is the 1000, but does it really keep us warm ?
Columbia asked an independent third-party entity to test TurboDown Wave’s heat-retention capabilities against several competitors’ insulated jackets. Using a computer-controlled environmental chamber to regulate variables, Columbia’s Heatzone Jacket took on several jackets including The North Face Super Diez Jacket, Arc’Teryx Cerium SV, and the Patagonia Fitz Roy. In each case, the Columbia jacket insulated with TurboDown Wave performed better; beating competitors by margins ranging from 3.1F to 9.9F warmer.
So go figure…
