The lyngen Alpha90 Raw Jacket for men is our lightest mid-layer and is specifically designed for high intensity activities such as ski touring. The jacket has great moisture transportation and dries quickly thanks to the combination of two light weight Polartec® fabrics with world class warmth-to-weight ratio: Alpha90 direct and the lightest Polartec® PowerDry. This makes for an extremely open and efficient construction, and the jacket can be worn as an baselayer. Features include a small chest pocket, integrated hand gaiter cuffs and a higher neck for extra protection.
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.

Weighing under 200 grams/m², these are our lightest fleeces. Perfect as a mid-layer, or wear it instead of a jacket without compromising on insulation and breathability. These fleeces are among the best in the market. Their unique constructions and structures are perfect for different types of activities, as they trap warm air without stopping moisture transport. When used alone, the fabrics are open enough to allow air to circulate, making you feel comfortable in milder conditions. Under a shell they provide excellent insulation values.
