The Alta II Jacket (available in both men's and ladies' fit) is lighter in weight with less bulk than its predecessor (the Alta Jacket). Increased ventilation via our 2 way reversed zip makes the new Alta II an ideal choice for all hill walkers looking to maintain an ideal comfort level without taking layers on or off.
- Increased field of vision, fine adjustment and complete weather protection are provided by the fully adjustable, wired, roll-away hood.
- Maximum freedom of movement and increased comfort in the shoulder and arm area are provided by articulated shoulders and sleeves.
- Adjustable venting and temperature control, with no restriction to movement or comfort are offered through upper arm vents.
- Additional ventilation is available via a 2-way reversed zip and poppered internal storm flap.
- Increased comfort and protection when load carrying are provided by the reinforced shoulder construction.
- The easily adjustable cuff design allows sleeves to be pushed up for cooling.
- Excellent weather protection in all conditions comes from our unique 2" drip skirt and scooped tail.
- Additional temperature control is provided by single-handed waist and hem drawcord pulls. These also helps eliminate rucking when load carrying.
- There are two generous handwarming pockets and storage is provided by one large external working pocket plus a large internal dry map pocket.
