In collaboration with Snugpak, the Platatac Badger Insulated Hoody is a feature-packed and versatile insulator combining lightweight, warm and breathable fabrics into a premier choice garment that compresses down, and is easily stowed away until required; it should be the mainstay of everybody’s cold weather gear.
The Badger Insulated Hoody provides superior warmth for weight, through its tri-layered construction, with a Paratex Micro outer shell, a breathable, highly windproof and durable water repellent (DWR) fabric that sheds water and is fast drying. The fill is Softie Premier which has excellent insulating properties, trapping heat and maximising comfort. Internally against the body is the TS1 fleece lining which adds another layer of warmth and comfort, is breathable and transfers moisture during activity.
The face fabric of the Multicam version is Epsilon fabric, which has a Nanosphere DWR treatment for superior wind and water repellency.
Additional features include a drop tail hem, high neck design to keep out the draughts, a permanent, adjustable, insulated hood for extra warmth around the head, neck and face making this jacket perfect for donning as a stand-alone layer, when the mercury drops in variable weather, or paired with a shell jacket in colder/wet conditions.

Sizing and Weights
Insulation (100% Polyester)
Randomised fine filament fibres create extra voids and loft to trap more warm air, whilst keeping the same weight as a standard insulation.
Inner Fabric (100% Polyester)
TS1 is a lightweight polyester fabric with a suede finish, which uses a combination of yarns with different thicknesses. Microfibre yarns (less than 1 decitex) go on the outside and Macrofibre (3 decitex) go on the inside.
Outer Fabric (100% Nylon)
The MultiCam® pattern was developed to effectively limit the visual and near-IR signature of a person operating across a very wide range of physical environments and seasons. After many successful evaluations, after being proven in combat, and after becoming the officially issued pattern of the US Army for all Afghanistan operations in 2010, MultiCam® is the proven multi-environment concealment solution.
Outer Fabric (100% Nylon)
Paratex Micro is tough, lightweight, highly windproof and water repellent. Paratex Micro utilises closely constructed fabric and is exceptionally hard wearing but still remains soft to the touch.
