The Stoney Creek ALTITUDE Jacket, with Primaloft insulation arrived yesterday from Tasmania. As I pulled it out of its plastic wrapper, I instantly knew that this garment was “a cut above” the normal run of hunting gear, which has already reached a high level of quality and performance. 

This jacket is definitely classy, characterised by a fine, cotton-type, microfibre, light-olive-green outer fabric that has been treated to resist weather and dirt. It is cut to cover the kidneys and top of the buttocks for real comfort. Inside, it is quilted with a breathable similar-coloured silk-like fabric that immediately envelops you in a cosy warmth, without promoting perspiration. The black microfibre collar inner adds further to the comfort level and the handwarmer pockets are just right for this style of clothing. What’s more, they compress to a tiny bundle and weigh about half a kilo; a lot of performance in a tiny packed package.

I am thoroughly impressed by this jacket and know that it will perform and last. For $189 RRP, it is an investment in comfort and style that you could happily wear as a casual jacket at a weekend function. Stoney Creek’s technical specs appear below.

The quiet microfibre has been chosen for its ability to cut the wind, shed water and dirt, while not feeling like a plastic bag and keeps noise down.

Unlike other Down garments, the Altitude Primaloft Jacket won’t lose it’s loft when it gets wet, so you will stay warm and protected when the weather turns against you.
