WIN! a Rab Alpha Direct jacket worth £180
Rab have some awesome additions to their clothing range this autumn, and one of the stand-out pieces is the Alpha Direct Jacket. Rab say that the jacket is “defined by our decades of experience in mountain environments” and for hillwalkers, climbers and mountaineers this is a hugely versatile piece that gives you the benefits of Polartec Alpha Direct insulation on the inside, and Pertex Microlight on the outside – all with the great design and features that we’ve come to expect from Rab.
During an alpine adventure every kind of condition can be experienced, from a warm walk or ski to the base of a route to shivering it out on a freezing belay. In these varied conditions the Alpha Direct balances moisture control and comfort when on the move with warmth and protection from the elements when static.
Designed to be worn as an outer or midlayer depending on the temperature, this jacket adds exceptional versatility to your layering system. A tough and reliable Pertex Microlight outer fabric secures the insulation and minimises wear, providing a windproof barrier when not wearing a hardshell. Other features include an under-helmet hood with cosy lining, a two-way zipper that gives you versatility when wearing a harness, and there’s one chest pocket and two generous handwarmer pockets that can be left open when extra ventilation is required. There’s lots of neat touches too, such as the soft chinguard at the top of the main zip and the stretchy cuffs with thumbloops at each arm.
