The Alpha Vertex was designed from the ground up with the bowhunter in mind. It is insulated but lightweight, packable, and weather-resistant. Use it as an outer layer for early to mid-season. Alpha is also an ideal mid-layer when the temperature really drops because it offers core warmth without the bulk. For easy on/off access, we made sure the zippers go all the way up to the hip, so you won’t have to struggle to change gear when the weather shifts. Zippered thigh pockets provide safe and easy access when sitting or standing.
