Jack Wolfskin's new Prelight Alpha Jacket embodies that mission. The lightweight, insulated, and versatile piece is designed to keep you warm, protected from the wind, and comfortable during outdoor adventures. The Polartec Alpha synthetic fill is a breathable insulating technology that minimizes the need for shedding or adding layers during activities by balancing airflow and moisture transport. Weighing just 220g for a men's medium and 175g for a women's small, the Prelight Alpha Jacket packs light and won't weigh down your backpack or restrict your mobility on the trail. At its core, the jacket is the perfect balance of warmth and packability. 

Adding to its performance properties, the Prelight Alpha Jacket supports eco-conscious design and materials through the use of innovative, recycled content that not only keeps you warm but also contributes to a more sustainable world. Jack Wolfskin continues to create sustainable apparel protecting both the demands of the modern outdoor enthusiast and the environment.
