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.

  • Polartec Alpha insulation was developed for U.S. Special Operations doing high output, stop-and-go activity.
  • Non-insulated side and back panels are durable and highly breathable.
  • DWR treatment helps keep light precipitation from seeping in.
  • Slim fit encourages use over a base layer.

Questions & Reviews

Question from James K
Is this vest made to be worn over a base layer?
Answer from Emmett I

Yep, this is made to be worn over a base layer.
Answer from James K
Thank you Emmett! Can Crazy Idea Acceleration Pull ( be worn under this vest? Not sure if that is an ideal layering or it makes even sense.

And can Crazy Idea Acceleration Pull be worn under La Sportiva Session Tech Hoody?

Just trying to make some decisions and I really appreciate your expertise and guidance.

Also should a base layer (wool or synthetic?) normally be worn under Crazy Idea Acceleration Pull?
