Additional Information

Story
The next layer of Outlier insulation. Alphacore combines two layers of lush 200gsm, 17.5 micron Ultrafine merino and sandwiches Polartec’s highly breathable 120gsm Alpha insulation in-between. The result is a seriously soft insulation with a warmth that glows like summer all winter long.

The radical difference is really in how breathable this stuff is. Ultrafine merino is both super soft and highly breathable, it’s a hygroscopic fiber that actively absorbs water vapor to create a superior body climate as you move. Polartec’s Alpha is an insulation specifically developed for the US military’s special forces to breathe freely, dry quickly and keep working, even in wet conditions. Combine them and you get a super comfortable and dry warmth that feels a bit like you stayed under the covers yet somehow made it outside.

For the Vest version we made a hooded pullover with a modified funnel neck and hand warmer pockets.
