  • $699.99


The Highlands Jacket is designed to provide full waterproof protection and insulation on the coldest days without sacrificing breathability. It's one of the first jackets made from a unique combination of Polartec® NeoShell®, the most breathable waterproof fabric on the market, and Polartec® Alpha®, the first-ever breathable puffy insulation. for active warmth. Originally developed for U.S. Special Operations Forces, Polartec® Alpha® is now available through Strafe. Unlike down or classic synthetic fill, which require the use of "closed" fabrics, Polartec® Alpha® is a highly stable insulation that won't poke through or migrate. This allows us to pair it with brushed fleece on the inside of the Highlands Jacket for the creation of an air permeable and waterproof puffy insulation package that's not a vapor barrier, rather one that breathes with you for active warmth. We've found this combination of Polartec® NeoShell® and Polartec® Alpha® (100g in the body, 80g in the sleeves) to be more comfortable throughout a wider range of the coldest weather conditions than anything else, often eliminating the need for a midlayer.
