This lightweight and highly breathable insulation jacket for women,
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 and 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.
Rated 4 out of
good, all-round jacketI bought this jacket a couple of months ago & have since worn it for walking in Italy, the Isle of Skye & the Lake District. It is extremely comfortable, both in fit, movement, & in temperature regulation. It's wind-stopping abilities meant that it worked really well under a down jacket. It is now my go-to layer for any conditions I may have to buy another colour just for some variety!
