I can't rave enough about how warm wool is--even when wet. We have a saying up here in AK, "Cotton Kills". Wool dosen't loose it's insulating properties when wet...
Down is great, but get it wet and it becomes useless. . . Pollyester fill is also nice, but once again it looses some of it's insulation when wet.
Wool is great, wool is good!!! Anyone have any specific products/weights they prefer?
