This lightweight women's insulation piece provides an especially high level of breathability. Its soft and quiet face fabric and good air circualtion makes this suitable for a comfortable midlayer, yet wind resistance and water repellancy also makes for a comfortable outer jacket. This is a good option if you are concerned about weight and breathability but still in
need of protection and insulation. It has a soft, lightweight mesh liner, and Polartec
Alpha 60 grams insulation.

So warm! And pretty!This jacket is deceptive - it is super light and seems really thin and unsubstantial. But put it on and it is toasty warm and wind and water resistant. Great for layering if you will be out in really cold weather, otherwise great on its own.
Super duper pretty, get loads of compliments on it.

The jacket you'll always pack from now onThis is the kind of jacket that takes a while to convince you. It might be the different shiny look or soft the material, but once you put it on you'll never want to take it off again!
The Bitihorn alpha60 is incredibly comfortable and warm for such lightweight. It's also fairly wind tight, which means it works great for outdoor hikes and bike commutes!
I just would have liked the fit to be improved on the arms length, always too long for me.
