This lightweight and highly breathable insulation jacket for men,
can be worn alone or as a mid layer. The Polartec®
Alpha®60 provides good insulation even when wet, it’s
very quick drying and has a higher warmth-to-weight
ratio than fleece. The jacket includes features such as Polartec®
Power Stretch® side panels and cuffs for good athletic
fit, a warm and weather protective collar, two hand
warming pockets. Made of Polartec® Alpha®
recycled polyester fabric.
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.

Super Breathable and better than my primaloft for active sportI used this jacket at the end of the ski season, when the day are longer and warmer. I usually use the Primaloft 60 version, but I would like something lighter and super breathable. It's works super well, and keep you protected from the wind. I see this insulated jacket more as a everyday product, from ski touring in april to hiking in october. You can wearing this jacket with a backpack and not feel too warm !

New kind of windshell/mid layer/insulationI really like This product because it offers great comfort in dry condition up to 15 C, from windy to chilly conditions, as a shell or a mid layer or as a insulation jacket when it is warmer. What makes the comfort great is that unlike down jacket this insulation jacket transport mouisture fantastic. There for a can run, cross country ski or go ski touring with is and still have some buffering to cold air. It is not a replacement for a down or insulation jacket, but it can replace a mid layer and a wind shell. I'm 185 cm and 93 kg and the fit is good, but with more of an athletic fit.

Product description is misleadingJust wanted to let customers know that this jacket neither has a packable pocket, nor does it have an adjustable hem as stated in the description. Also, the cuffs are not elastic and become permanently stretched out when putting the jacket on and pulling the cuff over your hands. It's possible that the description was just copied over from another item such as the falketind PrimaLoft60 jacket.
