TechWhen cold winds blow strong, riding or skiing becomes much less pleasant. The Alpha vest is a high performance insulating windbreaker that helps you start your training sessions without having to push to the max to warm up quickly. The front blocks the wind while the back evacuates perspiration, which lets the vest adapt to your level of effort to keep you dry at all times. The offset zipper facilitates layering and the multimedia pocket keeps your electronic devices warm. The Alpha is great for cycling, skiing and running. It keeps your chest warm for unparalleled comfort. Very versatile, it will be a great asset and will make you want to wear it for almost all your cold-weather workouts.

Garment that provides a close to the body fit without compressing.
DescriptionThe hybrid construction of the Alpha Vest combines X-Lite 19 fabric that is ultralight and blocks headwinds with 60 g of Polartec® Alpha® Insulation. The heavyweight Polartec® Drytex 6000 on the back insulates and stretches for freedom of movement. The full-length front zipper is offset for enhanced comfort when layering with another zippered jersey and/or jacket. The vest is packable in the zippered back stow pocket and has a chest pocket as well. The vest has a close-to-body fit but its stretchability allows for multi-layering.
3 Customer Review(s)I have been looking for a vest for a long time since my "team" vest does not have rear pockets. I could not be more happy with the Alpha. It is not your typical wind stop material of a normal vest. It is almost like a softshell jacket. The fleece lining is awesome and the fit is great as well. I went with the black and the reflection strips are located in great places. I really like the single rear pocket design with a zipper. I can put the items I want to get to quickly in that pocket and put the rest in my jersey pockets underneath. This vest is very warm as well. The high collar adds even more protection from the wind when you have it fully zipped. I actually use it post ride/race to wear around on the way home.I run in this vest as well. One of the best cycling apparel buys I have made.
Quality Price ValueI wear the vest under my jacket for cold weather cycling (below freezing). It’s warm, slim, and comfortable. Extra chest pocket is handy. I also like the offset zipper so you can open the layer above it without opening the vest which is a feature found in top of the line jackets only this is more flexible. Not designed to fit in a jersey pocket. It’s a little pricey but I’m happy with it. Funny how many of my cold weather garments are from Canadian companies. Quality Price Valuei use this vest for running outside in cool to cold weather with just a base layer underneath. I change the type of baselayer (light to heavy) depending on temperature. The vest's fit is perfect for running outside, the front (chest) pocket is very handy to store keys and ipod/iphone durring the run. It is by far the best running garment I've bought in a while.
