Insulation, 100% Polyester, Alpha Breathable Insulation, 60G, Bluesign Approved.

Alpha® is a 100% polyester knit active insulation that eliminates the need to shed layers while on the move.

Solid Piece Review by khill-Staff

I think of this as a high performing fleece with a far more polished appearance. This is as soft and comfortable as any fleece but the nylon sheds elements a bit better. A great piece for early morning adventures!

All day wear, every activity Review by Caitlin - Staff

Love It Scale

I ran a 5k in the upper 20's in March along the lake in Chicago (that wind is harsh!) with nothing but a tech tee underneath. I was comfortable and able to focus on the race. This summer I wore it to Colorado, running a much longer race and climbing to 10,00ft on a hike soon after. This jacket can handle any activity and keeps your body temp level. It's comfortable, soft, and reversible! For Chicagoans, it's a great insulation piece beneath your Modis Jacket or hardshell for those chilly rough commutes too!

Lightweight Insulation for Cool transitions Review by Caroline/Staff

I've been wearing this all over town this spring and it feels great against my skin, as well as over long sleeve tees. The knit construction keeps it light without feeling too bulky. Wears like a sweatshirt. I never overheat in it which is great because I'm always on the move!

I LOVE this jacket Review by Nancy

I love this jacket. So much! When I first received it, I was suprised by how light it felt - how could this airy, light, soft jacket be warm enough for spring/fall days? It is!! I haven't taken it off, on chilly mornings, chilly days, chilly evenings, and I imagine wearing it under rain gear or extra layers if needed because the fabric is so soft and comfortable that I don't want to take it off. I've reversed it to the green side for visibility, and the design is so perfect that there is a bike pocket on this side. I don't have much of a shape, and the cut of the jacket is simple yet complimentary. My only sadness is that because I've been wearing this jacket a lot, and work outside a lot, the fabric in the front lower area, below the pockets, has little snags, I'm guessing from hauling lumber. I may just purchase a second one so that I have one for work, and one that I keep a bit cleaner!

I wore this on a quick 4 mile run yesterday and it was the perfect weight to beat the afternoon April chill (in Wyoming!) but still kept me cool when I picked up the pace. I was able to reverse it to the bright green side for running on the road. Looking forward to sporting this for an array of activities!

Incredibly Multi-functional Review by LW-Staff

This jacket is absolutely amazing! I just spent a week in the desert with it and had it on the entire time! I wore it every day biking with the Women's Divide Hoodie or Tech Tee underneath and it did a fantastic job of keeping me both warm and protected from the wind but also super dry and not at all sweaty. I was actually amazed with how breathable this jacket felt even on really sunny days when I was biking. I even slept in this jacket a few nights when the temps dropped and it was super cozy and soft to sleep in. I am a huge advocate for this jacket and highly recommend it to anyone and everyone looking for a great mid-layer for any season. I am 5'4" and 120lbs and the Small fits great.
