Guides Picks – Climbing Jacket

Rab Alpha Direct

Alpha Direct Jacket is truly defined by our decades of experience in mountain
environments. During an alpine adventure every kind of condition can be experienced,
from a warm walk or ski to the base of a route to shivering it out on a freezing belay. In
these varied conditions the Alpha Direct balances moisture control and comfort when on
the move with warmth and protection from the elements when static.
Designed to be worn as an outer or mid-layer depending on the temperature, this jacket
adds exceptional versatility to your layering system. A tough and reliable Pertex®
Microlight outer fabric secures the insulation and minimises wear. Key tech features
include an under-helmet hood, two-way zipper and stretch fleece cuffs.

Arc’Teryx Atom LT Jacket

This trim hybrid jacket is designed as an active-use insulation layer, providing vital core warmth with liberal mobility and breathability. Lightweight and compressible, the Atom
LT Jacket features Coreloft™ insulation in the torso and arms. The side panels and
underarms feature Polartec® Power Stretch® with Hardface® Technology, delivering
stretch mobility and breathability. A wind and moisture resistant outer shell extends
stand-alone usability.
