La Sportiva Valhalla PrimaLoft® Jacket - Insulated (For Men)
Closeouts. La Sportiva's Valhalla PrimaLoft® jacket is a hybrid that's ideal for cool, windy conditions and also makes a versatile midlayer. A touch of PrimaLoft® SPORT insulation in the body and sleeves along with stretch side panels ensure maximum mobility and reliable wicking performance.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Power Walker from Vegas on Thursday, April 20, 2017This beauty is perfect for me because I like the way it looks and because it's light weight. This jacket offers a smaller and sleeker looking prima loft insulation which I'd much prefer for working out on cold days. I don't want to be working out in anything that is bulky or heavy in the colder mornings. This jacket is perfect and the deal here was too. A+
Reviewed by RunBikeHike from New England on Saturday, December 31, 2016The Valhalla PrimaLoft jacket is even better than I expected! It is very light for a PrimaLoft: the insulation is 20 gram, which is as low as I have seen. (For reference, an average PrimaLoft is 60 grams, and a heavy belay parka would be 180-200 grams.) The side panels have no insulation – just a thicker nylon panel. So it's not that warm, which is what I wanted, since I don't overheat this way. For a lighter insulating layer that is not fleece, it is perfect, and paired with a shell, it traps heat well. The pockets are awesome! Three external: two fleece-lined hand pockets and a chest pocket (it's a little small). Inside, there are two more zippered pockets, one small with headphone hole, and one larger. There's also an internal goggle pocket. The fit is spot-on: I am a medium in just about everything and the La Sportiva medium fit perfectly. There is full range of motion in the arms. There is no hood. The hem has a cinch cord. Cuffs are smaller elastic band, like you'd expect. Overall I am very happy with this jacket and wish they had more in my size so I could get another! I now own several La Sportiva clothes and have been very pleased with their quality, utility, and value.
