To help with the constant battle of thermoregulation in the backcountry, Karpos made the Alagna Plus Evo Vest. Smartly using Polartec Alpha insulation, which was designed for U.S. Special Forces, the Alagna Plus Evo Vest is designed to be worn and forgotten about, providing juuuust the right amount of insulation when you need it. It’s able to achieve this by allowing for greater air exchange, which limits the ability of cold air to enter while encouraging excess warm air and moisture to exit during bouts of high exertion. This combined with softshell side and back panels makes the Alagna Plus Evo Vest thrive during the stop-and-go nature of backcountry travel. Another advantage of the Alagna Plus Evo is it is a vest, which inherently weighs less and takes up less real estate than a comparable jacket, all while providing a high level of insulation. Functional, light, and breathable, the Alagna Plus Evo Vest is a reliable companion to bring along, no matter the adventure.
