Insulating fabrics suffer from a compromise matrix. Down is warm but traps heat and useless when wet. Synthetics continue to insulate when wet but still don’t breathe, leading to overheating and trapped sweat. For high output activity, overheating is not an option, but outdoor athletes have been stuck dealing with this series of trade-offs.
This fall SUGOI continues our partnership with Polartec® to bring you the Alpha Hybrid Jacket. Polartec® Alpha® delivers a unique blend of lightweight warmth and true breathability in a puffy garment that won’t restrict movement or lose it’s effectiveness when wet.
