Why We Like It

Inspired by the latest innovations in fabric technology the Women's Alpha Flash Jacket radically reinvents the traditional midlayer. For high output pursuits, this jacket performs like a dream keeping you dry and warm simultaneously (no matter how sweaty you get). It easily transitions from midlayer to outer layer as your body heats up.


From long, cold expeditions with limited resources to fast and light mountaineering the Women's Alpha Flash Jacket distills everything you need into one mid-layer. Made from the exceptionally breathable Polartec Alpha, the fabric wicks moisture at an incredible rate, keeping you warm and dry even when you're right at your physical limit.

With flexible fleece panels either side, Women's Alpha Flash Jacket will never hold you back; moving with you no matter how strenuous the climb. Extremely packable the Alpha Flash boasts an impressive warmth to weight ratio, making it the alpinist's go-to cold weather mid-layer.
