Active insulation for aerobic pursuits.
Built to keep you warm, even when wet, the Norrona Men's Falketind Alpha60 Insulated Jacket provides adaptive performance whether you're hiking the PCT or skiing the snowy slopes of Vermont. The Alpha60 features a lightweight exterior and Polartec Power Stretch side panels to ensure unimpeded mobility, which makes the Alpha60 also ideal for backcountry touring or cold weather trail running.
However, to differentiate itself from the rest of the synthetic insulated jackets on the market, the Alpha60 features Polartec's new Alpha Insulation: this innovative material features a high warmth-to-weight ratio and is extremely breathable, making it ideal for aerobic pursuits. The open-weave construction lends air permeability, manages moisture, and regulates your temperature with ease, so you're able to carry on hiking, climbing, or skiing without having to fuss over your layering system. Additionally, the Alpha60 features quick-drying fabrics to prevent you from catching a chill should Mother Nature bestow you with some flurries or light precipitation, while a Packable Pocket allows you to stuff the jacket into its own pocket and toss it in your pack when it's not in use.

- Q & A
Great lightweight jacket
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Medium
- Height: 5'9"
- Weight: 160lbs
This is a great lightweight jacket. In black it is very stylish, and has a decent upscale look. It's freedom of movement is 100%, meaning it doesn't restrict any movements. For this, I see it as a GREAT jacket for golfers or any similar activity. I am 5'9", 160lbs and the medium fits nicely. It may be a half inch too short in the front for my liking, but the fit in the body, torso, and everywhere else is great. Stretch is also just about limitless with this thing. This won't hold up alone in combined conditions of very cold and very windy, but will work for mild cold temps and wind.
Also, the new polartech alpha insulation is excellent. Extremely soft and cozy feeling, and even though the insulation layer is extremely thin in this jacket, you get the sense that this material is really good warmth/weight.
how many grams of polartec alpha is in this jacket?
