The lofoten Powershield Pro Alpha Jacket is a
revolutionary jacket providing air permeable weather
protection with insulation and high breathability.
The outer fabric is made of a laminated Polartec®
Powershield Pro woven nylon with a Polartec®
Alpha lining. This combination makes the jacket
work as an individual freeride jacket but also a
great addition underneath or outside a shell jacket
under rough conditions. Other features include a protective hood with single handed back adjustments, hand warming pockets, a chest pocket and velcro cuff adjustments.
Polartec® Power Shield® was developed to find a greater balance between weather resistance and personal comfort.
By integrating an advanced micro-porous membrane between a durable weather repelling exterior we created a resilient outerwear fabric with increased breathability. The ability to block wind and water was finally directly integrated with a surface technology that could consistently increase breathability during any activity
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.

A good layering piece for ski touringYou can wear this on the outside and because of that, it makes a great layering piece for me especially when ski touring. Even when there is some precipitation but you want to breathe a little more this is a great piece to have in your closet.
