The Salomon Drifter Mid Vest is a great product with a hefty price tag. This is primarily a brand that is sold in Europe, meaning there are import fees and other taxations. The price also increases significantly due to the difference in currency. However, those who have purchased the Salomon Drifter Mid Vest has agreed that the more expensive price tag is worth one.

When it comes to the Salomon Drifter Mid Vest, this is not something you will have to worry about. The product is made using very lightweight fabrics. Wearing this vest will not feel like any physical weight has been added.
Another thing that has helped decrease the overall weight of the Salomon Drifter Mid Vest is that it uses precision materials.

The Salomon Drifter Mid Vest has very good moisture-wicking properties. When moisture gets onto the vest, it does not absorb it right away. The droplets continue to sit on the outer layer before it is shaken or brushed off. This can be done by hand or simply by your movements when you walk or run.
Having good moisture-wicking properties can also have an added benefit.

The water repellent material will delay the absorption of the beverage, allowing you ample time to find something to clean it off.
The Salmon Drifter Mid Vest features four-way stretch capabilities. This includes up, down, left, and right. This is unique because most products are only meant to be able to withstand a longitudinal pull or a latitudinal pulling. This means that when the clothing is pulled in a direction that it was not meant to, the clothing will tear. The Salmon Drifter Mid Vest has spandex mixed into the materials so that it can help with elasticity.
This is ideal for people that will be exercising outdoors while wearing their vest. Sports usually require your body to be placed in positions it is not normally accustomed to. This particular product can withstand long periods of stretching without worrying it will break.
The Salomon Drifter Mid Vest can be compressed into a fraction of its size. This is because the materials of this particular item are meant to be packed. When unfurled, the vest absorbs a lot of air and helps the vest expand. This gives the wearer a feeling of fullness and comfort.
This is ideal during the winter season, but there will be a time where it becomes too hot and you want to put it away. This can become quite a problem if your bag is already full and there is very limited space left. Because the Salomon Drifter Mid Vest is made with compressible material, simply roll the vest and push down until all the air bubbles are deflated.
The vest does this through a patented technology known as PrimaLoft. Once your body generates heat, this technology reflects the heat towards your body. This will allow your body to absorb any residual heat. The PrimaLoft technology also helps trap the heat within the Salomon Drifter Mid vest by making it hard to penetrate.
This means that the escaping heat has a hard time navigating through all the layers of material to exit. Heat wanting to escape the vest will have to find the pores of the fibers where they can continue towards the outer layers. The delay in the release of the trapped heat means extra time that your body stays warm. This vest can keep your body warm and protect much longer than most competitors.
Most people can attest to the fact that when their vest starts to break, it is usually because the edges are starting to fray. To prevent early signs of wear and tear, the Salmon Drifter Mid Vest uses hem binding to protect the lower hem. This means that the hem is reinforced by what is known as hem tape.
This is a fabric tape that is woven so that it can protect the fraying edges of the hem. The reinforcement will allow your vest to last longer without showing signs of age.
Depending on the length of your neck, the collar on the Salmon Drifter Mid Vest will reach your jawline or slightly below. Having this collar will prevent wind from seeping in and making it down to your chest. The collar is designed to reduce the exposed skin around your neck and chest so that the wind does not enter. This will help keep your body at warmer body temperature.
The materials used to create this vest is also windproof. This can help slow down the amount of cold air trying to rush through your vest and enter your skin. The wind protection of this vest is ideal for people that enjoy running or partaking in sports outdoors.

Placing your valuable items in a pocket and zipping it up will ensure that you will not lose your belongings. This can offer you peace of mind while you are training.
