Alpha is the successor to our popular Insulator line, and it is definitely an upgrade in every sense. It's thinner yet warmer due to its fleece insulation, so it delivers all-season warmth and breathability without the bulk. It's quiet, windproof, and water-resistant, meaning no matter what type of hunt you are on, you will be comfortable enough to stay in the field as long as it takes. The bottom line is Alpha will be a suit that goes with you on every hunt for years to come.
- Windproof/water resistant shell
- 100g fleece insulation
- All-Season warmth and breathability, without the bulk
- Athletic fit
- The inner pocket doubles as an integrated stuff sack so you can compress the Alpha down and stow it
Material is a tad loud for an outer layer but has done fine as a layering piece. Definitely well constructed and I also wear it around town. Not as warm as expected based on reviews but everyone tolerates the cold a tad different
The vest is warm, comfy and stops the wind. It layers very well. I'm 6'1" with a long torso and arms so love that it comes in a tall size. The body length is perfect on me. I also love the beluga color. I really wish you'd offer more of your gear in this color or other solid colors. I hunt in mostly solid colors, not much camo, so more solid colors would be nice.
Great vest for those crisp early season mornings. Haven’t used it yet as a layering piece but should work nicely. Only complaint is the outer material is loud when moving or drawing a bow.
love this vest keeps your core really warm and is a great layering piece under the waypoint jacket. I wore the gunnison hoodie with the vest and waypoint jacket on a recent moose hunt and was warm and comfortable
I am 5'10" 180lb and the large fits perfect! Lightweight & warm. I have been looking for a windproof vest as an additional layer for a long time. I am a bow hunter so I do not want to have too many layers on my arms. I love this vest and am anxious to field test it. Supposedly you are able to use the inner pocket as a stuff sack to stow it but I cannot figure it out and there are no videos on how to do it. It is not a huge deal but I would like to utilize that feature. If I do figure it out I will be sure to post a video. I would definitely recommend this piece!
Lite weight and just warm enough. Fit is spot on.
