Your Cutting-Edge Shield From the Elements

Designed for stop-start activities in the mountains where core body temperature regulation is key, the Montane Halogen Alpha Jacket combines good looks with cutting-edge materials.

Whether you’re on deck waiting for whales to breach in Antarctica or keeping the wind at bay during a hike in the Andes, it’s always important to have the right jacket to ensure your body heat stays where it needs to – inside! Fortunately, the Montane Halogen Alpha Jacket for women is just such a layer.

Designed to keep you comfortable, warm, and protected on outdoor adventures, the Montane Halogen Alpha has been constructed using a combination of a signature Pertex Microlight outer that delivers supreme protection against wet weather conditions by forming a reliable, high-density barrier against the elements, and Polartec Alpha insulation, which provides breathable warmth without the added bulk. The insulation protects against harsh weather conditions keeping you warm and comfortable whilst still allowing superior ventilation. The fabrication traps heat within its fibers to keep your body temperature stabilized when the cold weather strikes. Polartec Alpha is also fast drying and packable, making this jacket your new go-to.

The jacket‘s stretch bound face aperture and close-fitting hood are designed to fit over winter headwear whilst the adjustable hem as the drawcord can be tightened or loosened depending on your own requirements. Low profile stretch bound cuffs allow for maximum mobility and a full range of motion while also retaining warmth while a full-length two-way YKK reverse coil front zip allows easy access to your climbing or rucksack harness and an internal storm flap behind the centre front zip together with press stud helps to secure the hem and prevent further weather entry.

For when things get really chilly, a microfleece-lined beard guard provides additional warmth without causing distraction or irritation, while two A-line hand-warmer pockets with YKK reverse coil zips are positioned well clear of backpack or climbing harness belt.
