Here's something a bit different from us...a video review. James went for a misty morning boulder at Burbage West after testing the Alpha Direct Jacket for the last season. Rab have used new Polartec Alpha Direct to create a superb and extremely versatile mid/outer layer. 

Pros

  • Versatile, works as a mid or outer layer
  • Really breathable
  • Really high warmth-to-weight ratio
  • Polartec Alpha Direct insulation is more efficient than standard fleece
  • Warm even when wet
  • Excellent fit - snug round the torso, with great movement in the arms
  • Thumbloops keep your wrists warm
  • Chest pocket doubles as stuffsack
  • Snug fitting hood goes under a helmet, but will also stretch to fit over one if needed, or roll out of the way when not

Cons

  • None really!
