Alpha Pro Jacket:
Polartec Alpha is a new concept in synthetic insulation focusing on unsurpassed thermo-regulation and breathability. Unlike conventional synthetic insulations Alpha is a woven material that offers excellent stability and superior durability without the need for scrims or tightly woven fibre proof linings fabrics.
Its unique woven structure allows for the use of highly breathable lining fabrics which permit body heat to move through the insulation away from the body. This unrestricted movement of moisture vapour allows these garments to be worn in a wider range of activities compared to conventional insulated garments.
