Millet Extreme Rutor Alpha Vest


A vest is ideal when just a bit of extra core-warmth is needed or when you’ve been hitting the weights too hard and your biceps no longer fit in sleeves. The Extreme Rutor Alpha Vest is one of the best we have seen for ski touring. The 80g of Polartec Alpha fill on the front of the body provides just enough warmth to stave off a chill without overheating you and causing a loss of efficiency. Toss this vest on over your skinsuit as a warm-up piece, or over your touring jacket as you are leaving the car and allow your core to find that happy place that keeps blood flowing but sweat from accumulating. If it’s still on at the top of the line, not to worry, two large chest pockets will hold your skins comfortably until the next transition. The Extreme Rutor Alpha Vest is just what is needed to bump up the warmth a notch, without the bulk of a full jacket.

  • Ergnomic fit allows the vest to disappear on your body.
  • Airtastic side material ventilates moisture quickly.
  • Bicep workout not included, but encouraged.
