Millet calls it a “new-generation hybrid” jacket which seems appropriate. The dual-natured Touring Alpha is a slick composite of insulated and soft shell jackets. Power Stretch® Pro back and side panels are combined with Polartec® Alpha insulation on the front and arms to make an amazing jacket for touring and ski mountaineering. Alpha is Polartec’s new state-of-the-art insulation material that scores the highest on breathability and compressibility charts. Power Stretch Pro has long scored highest on movability charts (is that a thing?). Millet’s composite of the two is a work of both art and science.
