During an alpine adventure every kind of condition can be experienced, from a warm walk or ski to the base of a route to shivering it out on a freezing belay. In these varied conditions the Alpha Direct balances moisture control and comfort when on the move with warmth and protection from the elements when static. Designed to be worn as an outer or mid-layer depending on the temperature, this jacket adds exceptional versatility to your layering system. A tough and reliable Pertex Microlight outer fabric secures the insulation and minimises wear. Key tech features include an under-helmet hood, two-way zipper and stretch fleece cuffs.
