Warm, windproof, and packable Primaloft Silver jacket that fits into your layering system no matter the conditions
Heiko [Womens] Primaloft jacket
Lakeland Mountain Marathons, cycle-touring, canoe-camping… You want to stay warm, but you want to stay light too. With the Heiko, it doesn’t have to be one or the other.
Heiko’s superpower is providing stashable warmth during light activity when the wind picks up. Quilted Primaloft Silver insulation keeps a low profile, making it ideal for layering under a shell when needed, and packing into its own chest pocket when it’s not.
The Primaloft Silver fill retains in thermal properties when wet, drying a lot quicker than down. This makes Heiko ideal for damp places, like the Lake District at, well, any time of year really…
An internal insulated zip baffle and chin guard keep out the draughts; articulated arms give you room to move.
Soft touch fabric feels great next to your skin, and a DWR coating keeps the moisture at bay.
Primaloft Silver insulation is a synthetic fiber which create millions of tiny air pockets to trap body heat. It uses water repellent finish to improve performance in extreme conditions, maintaining its thermal properties even when wet. It’s also easy to care for, packable, breathable, and super soft: mega!

This jacket is just amazing, it's so light weight and yet perfectly warm. The cut and size fit well and colour is great. I'm very impressed for the money, I was looking for a synthetic jacket and this is just perfect. Service from Alpkit as always was swift, efficient and I love the personal message on the packing card
HEIKO JACKET, WOMENS
THIS JACKET IS BRILLIANT, AND SOOO LIGHTWEIGHT. I NEVER GET TOO HOT IN IT (LIKE I DO HALF WAY THROUGH THE WALK IN A NORMAL JACKET). ITS MY NEW FAVOURITE DOG WALKING JACKET. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS JACKET
Great Heiko Jacket
Love this jacket - I get really cold in winter but also really heat up when on the move, but this jacket has proved to be a treat. Cosy over a base-layer to get me out, and then once on the move, pushing uphill, I'm not overheating. I've used it for walking and biking and it has been great for both. More practical than a down jacket in places it'll get muddy and stuffs into a small pocket too. When I get back home I don't want to take it off either as it's so lightweight and lovely. I'm going to be wearing this a lot.
My other half is too busy to write a review, so I will do it for her.
I was really happy with my Synoment jacket. I didn't want a down jacket in case it got wet. When I saw the Heiko I wanted one, but the Synoment has loads of life in it so I persuaded her to buy one.
I could see the disappointment on her face when she got it out of the bag. How is this going to be any use? It's too thin. I just smiled and told her to try it, and after 10 minutes, as I knew would happen, she said, wow this is really warm. She took it off to look at is as though some trick was being played on her!
These type of jackets are really amazing. Down is nice, but if you don't need that level of warmth, and want to spend less time looking after it then these synthetic fill jackets really are good. They are light and warm. They dry very quickly too, and take up next to no space.
She loves this jacket so much I won't be surprised if I turn over and she is wearing it in bed!
I bought the Heiko and the Katabatic jacket for layering on a ski-touring trip across Svalbard in April. Most days I was warm enough with the Heiko over a base-layer, adding the Katabatic at breaks to keep the wind off. When we got some 'weather' the two jackets were more than adequate without a waterproof over the top. The Heiko stayed on in the tent, as well, and I never needed to get my emergency down jacket out of the stuff sace. Warm, comfy, without being bulky - this is now my favourite jacket.
