Millet Alpha Composite Jacket


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.

  • Two zippered chest pockets are a natural place to put your skins before heading down.
  • Polartec Power Stretch Pro panels on the sides and back are flexible and breathable.
  • Easy pivoting sleeves have thumbholes for fans of opposable finger segregation.
  • Polartec Alpha insulation is the new hotness in the exciting world of textiles.
  • Alpine Fit™ and Composit™ construction imply comfort and quality.
  • Flex Comfort™ is another Millet trademark which translates to awesomeness.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Allan
I have a 40 inch chest. I have a insulated millet ski jacket for inbounds in medium. Does the alpha touring composite jacket have a tighter fit? Im not sure if i should get medium or large. Thanks!
Answer from jbo
Hi Allan, you will want the Large. Millet shifted their sizing recently and what used to be a medium in the US is now a large.
