Not the regular puffy jacket. ALP represents the third most thermal layer of the ALPINE CHALLENGE line, which revolutionises the traditional concept of padding thanks to a mapping system in the different areas of the body, to meet warmth, transpiration and compressibility requirements. The core of the body area and upper sleeves are padded in a blend of PRIMALOFT® feather and wadding, which combines the warmth of the feather with PRIMALOFT® water repellency, thereby ensuring maximum insulation even when the garment is damp (unlike regular 100% feather puffy jackets). At the same time, feathers offer greater thermicity compared to the common synthetic wadding available in the market. The sides and forearms are padded with 100% PRIMALOFT® to ensure transpiration and the quickest elimination of moisture, as well as avoiding the feathers to fall out due to continuous rubbing.
Everything in ALP is designed considering the long, cold days in the mountains, starting with the reinforcements on the shoulders, shaped to resist rubbing backpacks, on the forearms and sides. Even the hood is designed for alpine hunters: made of POLARTEC® THERMAL PRO, because of the natural elasticity of the material, it adheres perfectly to the head ensuring warmth and minimizing any rustling.
The garment also includes stretch insets on the back, two front pockets and two inside pockets.
