Developed using thermal imaging data produced during activities in cold, wet conditions, the Fusion Alpha Jacket sets the standard for critical attention to detail. With a full set of technical features aimed at alpinists and using a combination of the highest performing fabrics available (POLARTEC Alpha, PERTEX Quantum CS-10, and POLARTEC Power Grid), the Fusion Alpha offers insulation, wind protection and breathability in one hit.
Core body panelling is encased with PERTEX Quantum CS-10 which is a supremely lightweight yet tough nylon rip-stop fabric that helps to provide windproof protection as well as the benefit of light rain resistance through durable water repellency (DWR). The jacket also features zoned POLARTEC Power Grid which delivers a close fit at the side of the body, across the back, in the hood and the forearms for a powerful wicking action to actively and efficiently reduce the amount of sweat and moisture which could hinder your performance. A full range of motion in all directions is also provided to offer the freedom of movement needed for the best possible results. To enhance the drying properties the jacket is incorporated with 80g/m2 POLARTEC Alpha synthetic insulation in the core of the body. This is lightweight and regulates internal temperatures to keep you warm at all times. Lightweight HYPERVENT lining is used to ensure maximum breathability and sufficient ventilation when required.
Technical tailoring around the arms to prevent arm lift raising the lower hem whilst reaching high.
Maximum storm protection is provided with the tall collar to add warmth and shield your face from the elements in harsh winter conditions or breezy late summer days. A stretch bound face aperture is designed to fit under or over a climbing helmet. The hood is complete with POLARTEC Power Grid technology and PERTEX Quantum CS-10 ear overlay to keep you warm, dry and protected.
The chest contains a large YKK reverse coil zipped pocket. This is handy for storing a GPS or map to help on expeditions as well as other small, essential items you may need. Ergonomic lightweight zip pullers make use easier when wearing gloves so you don't lose heat or have to expose your hands to the cold just to pull the zip up or down.
A full-length two-way YKK reverse coil front zip allows easy access to your climbing or rucksack harness. An internal storm flap behind the centre front zip together with press stud helps to secure the hem and prevent further weather entry. A micro fleece lined beard guard provides additional warmth without causing distraction or irritation such as chafing.
Stretch cuffs allow a full range of movement without restriction, as well as retaining warmth and a next to skin feel which adds comfort. Thumb loops prevent distraction from dangling cuffs, and add security of the fit especially if the pace is increased.
Find the perfect fit for you with the adjustable hem as the drawcord can be tightened or loosened depending on your own requirements.
