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 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.
