Brooks Range Men's Alpha Vest- Charcoal-L
The Brooks Range Men's Alpha Vest- Charcoal-L is a warm, comfortable vest for the shoulder season. You know, too cold to go without an extra layer but too warm for a regular jacket.
It combines 60 grams of Polartec Alpha insulation in the main body with Polartec Power Wool side and back panels. Power Wool employs a patented bicomponent knit construction with synthetic fibers, enhancing wool’s natural strengths while mitigating its weaknesses. The natural Merino wool interior layer provides its well-known next to skin comfort, odor resistance, breathability, moisture absorption, and warmth even when wet. The outer synthetic layer improves the wool’s durability and shape retention while wicking the moisture from the wool inner layer to hasten drying. This “hardface” outer surface also improves compatibility with layering systems, overcoming traditional wool’s tendency to stick to neighboring garments. Other additions made to Polartec Power Wool are the use of silver salts to inhibit bacteria growth for the life of the garment and a Other features of the Brooks-Range Mountaineering Alpha Vest include a 20d nylon shell fabric, a stretchy polyester liner fabric on the back and front panels, an insulated zipper draft tube with chin guard, two zipped handwarmer pockets, and one zipped chest pocket. The interior of the collar is also lined with Power Wool.
