    Next-level comfort for cold weather adventures.

    When you're on the move in cold weather, stay warm—but not too warm—in the Rab Men's Alpha Direct Insulated Jacket. Designed to be used as either an outer layer or a mid-layer, it takes advantage of Polartec Alpha Direct technology to keep you warm while offering unmatched breathability, so you stay comfortable through a wide range of temperatures.

    Alpha Direct insulation eliminates the need for a liner fabric, so you get more unimpeded airflow (not to mention less weight and bulk) without sacrificing warmth. A water-resistant outer fabric makes short work of light rain and snow, and the slim fit allows you to comfortably wear this jacket underneath a technical shell when the weather is extra rough.

    Favorite Jacket I Own!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Small

    This jacket does it all. Wind resistant, water resistant, breathable, WARM, and perfect for all kinds of outdoor activities. The fit is perfect. Very contoured through the torso, plenty of length in the arms, and really becomes a part of you when you wear it. If you want a little more room, order a size up. This is my second Rab jacket, and their sizing is not loose and forgiving like other brands. It's fitted in comparison, so I'll say it "runs small."

    Phenomenal in cold weather

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    Great fit, trim in the torso so it's not in the way when wearing a harness, and stay tucked in. Long enough sleeves it won't ride up and over gloves if you're reaching for a hold or tool placement.

    The Alpha insulation actually breathes---amazing, prior to wearing this jacket, I never skinned or did approaches in an insulated jacket. The Alpha Direct changed all that---Deep vent pockets help shed heat, but the interior pile and Alpha insulation breathes just enough you can move comfortably in cold weather. I'm usually overheated and this thing is awesome---leading a strenuous pitch of ice or skinning below 20F--I was psyched!

    Another great Rab jacket--true to fit, breathes well, dries quickly (wore it on a drippy ice climb), but also zip up and offer superb warmth on the down--awesome.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    • Size Bought: XL

    Amazing jacket with unbelievable insulation. You can almost see through it, but the Alpha Direct is warm enough, by itself, no base layer, at forty degrees F, on a bicycle to be comfortable. Snug fit so the XL worked better for sleeve length and torso length than the L. The thumb holes, the draw cord, the snug hood all make it a wonderful jacket, but the insulation is the knock out!
