Alpha® Direct

Active Insulation

Polartec® Alpha® Direct is an evolution of original Alpha® technology that eliminates the need for a backing fabric to create an enclosed fabric package.

By refining the shape and size of its lofted fibers, Alpha® Direct can be in direct contact with skin or other fabric layers. This new design ability increases breathable performance, expands versatile style options, and further reduces overall garment weight.

Regulate Comfort in Changing Conditions.

About Alpha® Direct Technology

Polartec® Alpha® Direct active insulation continuously releases excess body heat before it builds to cause saturation and discomfort.

This patented, adaptive quality is made possible through Alpha’s lofted fibers connected to a solid mesh core. And since Polartec® Alpha® Direct is inherently hydrophobic, it resists all moisture and dries incredibly fast.
