The X-Alps Alpha Men's Jacket pays homage to this tough adventure race requiring endurance hiking, mountaineering and paragliding skills.
Designed for high-exertion, stop-and-go mountain use with extreme temperature variations and changing conditions, the harder you work, the more this jacket’s Polartec® Alpha® insulation adapts to regulate your body temperature.
Inside the lightweight, windproof nylon shell, we place Polartec® Alpha® Recycled active insulation at the torso. Its special lofted fibres are connected to a solid mesh core to provide versatile, thermo-regulating protection where you need it. What really sets it apart is its ability to continuously release excess body heat via air exchange, before it can build to cause saturation and discomfort.
Ergonomic design and freedom of movement
The ergonomic sleeves and centre back panel are made from our comfy grid-knit Polarlite fleece for warmth with breathability. The sleeves also push up easily when it’s hot. This jacket has a close-fitting, athletic cut that stretches to trap and seal warmth in, while still allowing excellent freedom of movement.
There are two sleek chest pockets (one doubles up as a packable pouch) and it’s treated with Polygiene® permanent odour control for longer freshness and less washing.
This is your go-to, high-performance adaptive hybrid jacket for speed hiking and mountain training.
