Adidas ClimaWarm Wind fabric? What is it?

Anyone know what this material is or how well this jacket works? Pretty good price, I was thinking about picking one up. Thoughts? Experiences with it?

I'm not familiar with the material myself. A quick search on Adidas site lists it as the following:

"ClimaWarm® is lightweight, breathable insulation that keeps you dry and comfortable in cold weather conditions by using densely woven synthetic fibres to trap warm air close to the skin. While these fibres are dense enough to trap air, they are spaced far enough apart to easily allow heat-sapping sweat to escape through evaporation."

Which from the description sounds like a bicomponent weave softshell, similar to schoeller wb400. If it is, then it would be a great jacket for the price. Then again, it might be something totally different with nice marketing fluff. For the price even if its poor fabric, you'll most likely find enough uses over the course of a year to make it a decent buy.

I know this is an old thread but in case someone is looking for "Climawarm" again and comes across this thread I wanted to add my 2 cents. I bought this jacket on sale and cannot believe what a great find it was. It's lightweight and warm but what I didn't realize was that it was rainproof. I got caught in a cold, drenching rainstorm in winter while riding home. I was wearing a climawarm bike jacket from Addidas and stayed completely dry and warm in 30 minutes of riding. I was so impressed I'm googling to see where I can buy more stuff made of this fabric.
