RATING AND REVIEWS

Thanks for making this!!

5

Thanks for making this vest, I have been searching for a vest with a breathable fluffy fleece lining in a windshell. I also have the cathode vest, this is warmer and much more breathable. Upgrades: Fluffier fleece. I like a vest to be a great core insulator when I am active in cool weather.

Game changer!

Every now and then a piece of gear, an article of clothing, a technology comes along and changes the game and Polartech Alpha is such! Gone are the days of using a synthetic jacket for a winter because the fibers are so compressed your jacket turns into a cold wind shell. This vest is incredible and I wear it over a Polartech long sleeve mid layer. Super breathable and keeps the core warm during long climbing sessions.

Have used it on cooler mornings and days when a full on jacket was too much. From short hikes with my dog in the woods to backpacking in the North Cascades this vest adapts. It is warm yet not clammy.

Yes

Excellent Product

I used this vest extensively on recent travels in Europe. Perfect for casual wear for temperatures in the 50s with occasional light rain. Only suggested improvement would be adding a zipper to one of side pockets. Trim fit quite nice although required going up one size from normal.

Hi! Based on the photo no hand warmer pocket zips and a waist draw cord? KJM

KevInPDX

Hi KevInPDX, That is correct, the vest does not have zippered hand pockets or a waist draw cord. Thanks for contacting OR, Paul
