Rab have developed the Men's Alpha Direct Jacket to be a breathable outer or mid layer with Polartec Alpha Direct insulation technology to keep you warm and comfortable during demanding activities in cold conditions. Without a jacket lining, sweat can move through the Polartec Alpha insulation and away from your body via a quicker, more direct route, to give exceptional wicking efficiency. It also reduces the overall weight of the jacket while still keeping you warm.
An ideal mid layer for fast-paced adventures, or when it isn't raining constantly, the jacket is a great option for an all-day outer piece, thanks to the wind protection provided by the Pertex Microlight outer fabric. The under helmet hood has a tricot lined collar and the top of the zip has a chin guard for extra comfort. The inner storm placket helps to keep warmth inside the jacket and weather on the outside. Several pockets are positioned perfectly for stashing kit that you'd prefer to keep close to hand. The slim fit is designed to accomodate just a base layer underneath.

Rab specialise in making rugged, high-performance mountain clothing and equipment. Created to give you ultimate freedom, protection and comfort, we use cutting edge materials as well as time-tested ones such as premium quality European down. Nothing fancy or over-engineered – just honest, hard-working pieces that you’d rather repair than replace.
More than thirty years since our founding, we continue to find inspiration in the untamed spirit of the mountains where we climb, the friendships we forge on the peak and our enduring mission: to awaken the climber in everyone and equip them for the ascent.
