PrimaLoft® products can be found firstly in jackets, pants, gloves, sleeping bags, accessories and shoes. Secondly, the material is also used in the bed area.

In 1983 the research laboratory of the U.S. Army turned to the textile company Albany International, the former parent company of PrimaLoft®. They asked for the development of a synthetic alternative to goose down, which could be used in sleeping bags, apparel and accessories in every climate. The development took about two years - the synthetic down in 1985 was applied for patent and was named "PrimaLoft® ONE". The company PrimaLoft was founded in 1988 as a subsidiary of the Albany International Corporation, as they wanted to distribute the product not only for military reasons but also commercially.

Since 2012 PrimaLoft is an independent company. PrimaLoft® products can be found firstly in jackets, pants, gloves, sleeping bags, accessories and shoes. Secondly, the material is also used in the bed area.
