The Alpha is a new softshell from Brooks Range that will keep you warm in the alpine this year. As a single layer for colder three seasons conditions it is warm enough to wear while standing still and doing tasks like belaying and breathabe and stretchable enough for hiking and climbing.
As such, it is the perfect piece for colder alpine objectives this summer. The jacket can be compressed and packed into a space slightly larger than a one-litre water bottle. It has two zippered hand-warming pockets and one chest pocket that can fit a cell phone.
The Polartec Alpha insulation is breathable, fast-drying and warmer than most jackets of its weight. The stretch material in the arms and hood is water resistant and lightly insulated.

A hood expands the protection in poor conditions and fits well over a helmet. Overall, this is a great choice for climbbers heading high into the mountains of Canada. For more info visit Brooks Range here.
