Integral Designs Rundle Jacket SPOTLITE REVIEW Review
Hoodless, synthetic insulated jacket with an optimum balance of warmth, durability, wind/water resistance, and light weight.
By Will Rietveld
The Integral Designs Rundle jacket is a hoodless synthetic insulated jacket. Insulation is 4 oz/yd2 Primaloft Sport, which is thicker than many lightweight synthetic insulated jackets. More insulation means more warmth, but also means a little more weight. Its outer shell is 30 denier Pertex Microlight, which at 1.4 oz/yd2 is a bit heavier than popular 20 denier Pertex Quantum at 0.9 oz/yd2, but it's also more durable, windproof, and water-repellent.
