Worn either as an outer or mid-layer, the Alfar is aimed at fast-paced aerobic activity in cold climates where freedom of movement is crucial. Your core is insulated with a breathable 120g/m² synthetic fill wrapped in a windproof, Durable Water Repellent (DWR) treated, micro rip-stop nylon. Polartec® Powerstretch Pro® sleeves and side panels optimise stretch and breathability. Thumb loops, harness compatible pockets and a close-fitting insulated under-helmet hood make the Alfar a multi-functional, technical mountain essential.

Updates for 2017 include: adapted panelling for improved fit and improved cuff configuration.
