Overview

Alpine light and highly breathable, Polartec® Alpha® Active insulation warms yet allows steam to escape during early morning skins and spring thaw runs.

Alpine light and highly breathable, our active insulator prevents overheating when working up a sweat in cool air conditions. Polartec® Alpha® Active 60g insulation warms the core yet allows steam to escape quickly due to the advanced interior technology. Streamlined with fast-forward details such as low-pro stretch cuffs, liberating stretch underarm panels and a quick-draw, easy-cinch hood, our technical alpine insulator is fit for pushing the pace from early morning skins to spring thaw runs. The DWR-treated stretch nylon shell cuts the wind and a compressible design crams easily into hydration vests or lumbar packs.

Materials

Shell

Meridian™ AP Stretch Mini-Ripstop, 100% Nylon, 20 denier, 49 g/m2 with DWR Finish

Meridian™ AP is a 20 denier Mini-Ripstop Nylon with mechanical stretch by construction. DWR makes this fabric both highly water resistant and extremely breathable while maintaining excellent wind resistance.

Insulation

Polartec® Alpha® Active Insulation, Synthetic Knit Insulation, 54% Recycled Polyester 46% Polyester, 60g/m2

Alpha® is a 100% polyester knit active insulation that eliminates the need to shed layers while on the move. Designed to regulate core body temp during dynamic and static activities, Alpha® technology keeps moisture vapor moving freely through the fabric, increasing the overall air exchange and speeding up dry times. A DWR coating provides water resistance, increasing this fabric's performance in the most challenging environments.
