Critically Taped - On outerwear with critically taped seams you only have taping at the key points where potential leakage can occur. This is acceptable, or even advantageous if you live in a dry climate, if you're more concerned with breathability than dealing with wet weather then outerwear featuring critically taped seams is the way to go.
Thinsulate™ - 3M Thinsulate™ insulation is constructed from unique, high-loft microfibers for increased warmth with less bulk. 3M Thinsulate™ is breathable, water-resistant and durable, all while improving mobility.
Synthetic insulation is measured in grams, so a jacket with a 80g rating simply means that a 1 meter by 1 meter piece of that particular jacket's insulation weighs 80 grams. The higher the rating, the warmer the outerwear.
BioZone Lining System - By identifying the unique demands of three distinct anatomical zones, the BioZone lining system better serves your body's various needs. Moisture Management Zones wick moisture to help keep you dry. Movement Zones offer stretch and flexibility. Insulation Zones add strategically placed insulation materials (or light fleece backing in shells) to help maintain warmth.
