Beyond’s Alpha Aura Jacket

The Alpha Aura Jacket by Beyond incorporates the innovative Polartec Alpha Direct fabric, making it an excellent choice for high-energy outdoor activities such as hiking, mountaineering, downhill skiing and nordic skiing. The highly compressible insulation is sustainably produced in the USA from 54% recycled content.

This breathable knit-fleece fabric helps maintain warmth whatever the climate may be, plus its light weight and superior compressibility make it ideal for packing into a backpack or suitcase while traveling. It’s also softer and more breathable than most other fleece fabrics when layered under a shell jacket, allowing for extra comfort and ease of movement.

Additionally, DWR Ripstop hood and shoulder panels act as shields against wind and precipitation.
