• Alpha Direct Jacket

Truly Alpine Defined

The Alpha Direct Jacket is truly Alpine Defined. By removing the inner lining, moisture vapour is able to move quickly through the fibres, resulting in exceptional breathability and fast dry times when on the move. Combining this simplified system with 120gm2 of Alpha insulation and a Pertex Microlight shell, the use of the jacket is extended across the broad temperature ranges experienced during alpine climbing.

Superior Breathability

Warmth Without Weight

Polartec® Alpha® is the latest evolution of synthetic insulation offering a rare combination of lightweight warmth and true breathability in a “puffy” style garment. Because Polartec® Alpha® insulation is highly durable and more stable than other synthetic insulation products, more open-construction woven face and back fabrics can be selected to create an air permeable package. This small amount of airflow rapidly draws moisture away from the body and allows Polartec® Alpha® to be worn in a wider range of activities compared to classic “vapor barrier” style insulation.
