Our take on the modern insulated jacket melds an urban sense of clean-lined style with covert fabric technology. The Alpha Snap Jacket utilizes Polartec® Alpha insulation technology to provide adaptable breathability and core body temperature regulation during high exertion activities, wet, or dry; while also keeping you warm on a casual stroll.
"A nice, classically-styled shirt jacket that’s as technical as it gets thanks to Polartec’s new Alpha insulation that’s capable of handling large variances in ambient temperature or body heat, so you can wear this single item from a chilly afternoon to a frigid night and simply be comfortable the whole while. "
"The lightweight nature of this jacket makes it feel great on, but don’t let that fool you into thinking this is only for warmer weather. Its polartec interior is designed to handle the drastic temperature changes of the fall and its tailored fit will have you looking good on the bike trails or strolling through the city."
"I’ve actually ridden a mountain bike in this midweight on a cold morning in November, but the Snap Jacket is more of a café cruiser item: It’s technical, but casual. The Polartech Alpha breathable insulation keeps you warm without overheating. The jacket/shirt styling means I wear it-probably too much. "
That shirt/jacket has become my everyday jacket for the third year now. Extremely light, warm, very well made and finished. Works great as insulation layer under a shell too !
From sitting on a couch without the heat on in Connecticut (30 degrees outside), to standing in line at Starbucks (“nice jacket dude”), to walking around town, to watching soccer games in the fall. This has become my go to “look cool” jacket. Well made, well finished, soft and tough at the same time.
Lightweight but warm, this will be a consistent layer for me through the fall and winter.
I get compliments all the time and it packs small while providing warmth.
So it has been pretty much in the 90 degree & up range since I received this Alpha Snap Jacket. There was one cool morning though and a 5:00 am run to the airport. The Alpha is a great fitting , supremely comfortable & cozy item. If you could wear a hug this is what it would feel like. It has me looking forward to cooler temperatures and fall rides. And, I look damn good in it too!
