Sponsored Profile: ThermoLuxe by Rainforest

 

Rainforest founder Jack Wu believes he has found a compelling alternative to down that quite literally doesn’t have a downside. The luxury outerwear brand Wu started nearly 30 years ago worked with an Italian down supplier to create a synthetic version of down called ThermoLuxe™, now featured in about a third of Rainforest’s jackets.

ThermoLuxe™ is not just a poly fill, but a hollow synthetic cluster fiber that mimics the performance of down, staying airy and trapping warmth. “There are no down sides and a lot of ups,” explains Wu. It has the same heat retention qualities as premium down. It’s lightweight, packable, water repellent, hypoallergenic and won’t smell when wet. Since it’s not made from feathers, nothing will poke through the jacket’s fabric. And it’s less expensive: the ThermoLuxe™ jackets will retail for about $100 less than their down counterparts.

Down supply is relatively short right now, partly because in China, where most down is sourced, people don’t eat as much duck. Combine that with high demand and prices start going up. And of course if bird flu ever came back…

How ThermoLuxe Works

Since it mimics real down, ThermoLuxe™ jackets are quilted like down; in fact, given two Rainforest jackets—one down and one ThermoLuxe™—it’s very hard to tell them apart. Rainforest’s ThermoLuxe™ collection comprises mostly performance pieces ($195 to $495 retail).

Rainforest isn’t giving up on real down—Wu told MR in January that he still does a big down business with stores that want it—but he’s realistic about the impact ThermoLuxe™ is likely to have. “Synthetic fibers have all but replaced cotton in most performance apparel, including underwear today. Will ThermoLuxe™ ever replace down? Maybe someday, but for now we offer both.”
